Along with my family I would like to thank Amani Tiwi staff for a great time and share some of my experiences. Location: Amani Tiwi has a naturally beautiful, perfectly picturesque and a very peaceful location. It is a great place for unwinding, relaxing and sun tanning. Just imagine a spacious and clean sandy beach, tall coconut palms casting a welcome shade on lounge chairs and hammocks hanging between the trees, and all that with the background of soothing sound of ocean waves. True paradise in the Kwale county. People: Very friendly customer service, great waiters (Kelvin and Simon). Excellent entertainment provided by the amazing Animation Team: volleyball on the beach, polo in the water, aqua aerobics, yoga and all the extra activities all day long. Special thanks to Amani (Ishmael) and Gaga (Khamis) for their performances, their love of music, dance, acrobatics … and humor (guys, dream big and keep your dreams alive!!!). Thank you to Robert and Charlie as well. Beach Boys: I loved the exposure to the friendly locals frequenting the beach and at the same time respectfully keeping distance from the resort’s area. Although the reason they are there is to sell their services or products and make some much needed money, you can easily engage them in a very frank and truthful conversation about their lives. But … watch out!!! They might know some words and expressions in your language 😃. Your conversation may turn out quit funny … or … not so much … lol. Their stories gave me some basic understanding of the very poor standard of their lives and no much hope for better future. This prompted me to make my own research on the social and economic situation in Kenya. Thank you Beach Boys!!! Food: good variety at each meal. Delicious and interesting traditional food; goat meat, coconut rice, variety of flat breads and the amazing mandazi doughnuts. Monkeys: I am sure they are a nuisance to the resort and staff, but the family of monkeys was a great entertainment to me, and I am sure to other guests as well … it seemed though they liked the doughnuts even more than me … lol. Although I truly enjoyed the stay, I would like to suggest a few things if I may; • Better access to beach towels. There was no towel kiosk at the beach and not enough clean towels in general • Room updates and renovations. Outdated bathrooms and flooding showers. The entire facility uplift and maintenance needed in general • Improvement to the WiFi service • More bar staff for better and faster service, especially in the evenings Overall, the location, the people and the service was great, and I will definitely recommend the resort to others. In closing, understanding the unjust enrichment and unfair labour practices in Kenya, I would like to thank the Amani Tiwi staff and praise them for their smiling faces and making sure our stay was as great and enjoyable as possible. ASANTE SANA!!!

Absolutely beautiful resort, very well kept and clean, activities for everyone available such as water aerobics and amazing evening shows. Thank you to everyone for making it so carefree and so relaxing for all of us. Every (minimal) issue was sorted out extremely fast. I can not fault it honestly speaking. But most of all I wanted to thank all of the staff, especially Issa, Esther, Khamis (Gaga) and Ishmael and the rest of the animation team, literally all of the chefs and servers and Chief Chef, to all of the receptionists and last but not least the manager Thomas! Thank you all for making us feel at home and relating to us on a personal level and that’s something you can not provide training for, it’s all based on character and friendliness which you all have a lot of. We have all left feeling like we are part of the family. We will definitely visit again. We miss you all. Fifi :)

land in from Nairobi ready to enjoy my birthday and right from the paint pealings from the buildings near the gate we know we are in for a bumpy ride. We were checked in well given a nice lovely room. The food is nothing to write about, its always cold and flat. Our waiter Mwinyi was of great help during our meals. My girlfriend had arranged for a cake to be brought to our table during dinner for my birthday...guess what they took the cake to the wrong person and later on we learned that person told them that it's not his birthday but the service team still left the cake with him. We stood and took our disappointment to our room and 45min later someone knocked on our door and they brought our cake. At this point we really weren't in the i want cake mood. Day two, cold food all day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and our room wasn't cleaned until 4pm and even then they didn't give us towels.6pm is upon us and i want to watch an arsenal game and i can't because the remote to the decoder is in the IT managers office and he has left for the day🙆🏾‍♂️ story of my life. Advice to the hotel owners...hire professionals give them what they need, step aside and let them do their job. I recommend you visit Sawela lodge in Naivasha for benchmarking.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to send a review on your recent stay with us at Amani Tiwi Beach Resort. We do value your feedback. I will not endevour to make any excuses for the less than memorable stay you experienced at The Resort. We have consistently met and (on many occasions), exceeded our guests' expectations. This is evidenced by the myriad of positive comments we receive, on a daily basis, on this forum. The Team led by our able General Manager is aware what it takes to offer a memorable and enjoyable experience to our guests, but I am embarrassed to say, on this occasion, we let you down. And ourselves in the process. I have consulted the Team and we all admit, we could have handled you a lot better, we should have been quick and more involved in resolving the issues you so rightly raised. The response you received after you requested for the TV channel to be changed so as you may watch Arsenal game was below par as even the Decoder can be operated manually, and a manager should have met you on departure, if nothing else, get feedback on your stay and wish you a safe journey home. That is our standard!! We do understand during the course of your stay you were shifted to 3 different rooms which also led to the birthday cake landing to other guests which should not have been so and finally our guest relations served you with sorry cookies in the Deluxe room. As Management we do take your review as a kick in the backside and assure you that we have already taken measures to ensure this does not happen. Please accept our sincere apologies. May I request that you contact me directly or our General Manager to make your next booking and personally ensure that you get a taste of the real Amani Tiwi Beach Resort. Best regards, Thomas Front Office Manager

Had a 3 day pleasant stay at this seaside resort. It is spread over large well- manicured gardens and has a sandy beach front with coconut trees where most of the tourists spent their day lounging. There was evening entertainment in the evenings and a daily shuttle to nearest shopping centre. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Walking on beach safe and water excursions available.
