This is a very friendly and relax place. I have to say that this hotel is not the best in food, it is not interesting in equipment, it is not full of activities, it is not the cleanest one, but it is very good, if you want calm down, relax and just feel spirit of holidays and enjoy hospitality friendship...

This time we stayed in Samaki Lodge, typical Kiswahili architecture...small and complete in all the services...we enjoyed the beautiful spa ..especially my... More

The service and facilities are great at this welcoming hotel. The kids loved the pool and we had great excursions including snorkelling at Npenda. Only downside is the sea is either too high or too low to make the most of the beach which is more accessible from other parts of the island.

Run by Italian owner, this inexpensive small hotel surrounded by nice garden has a gorgeous white-sand beach, nice pool area, very helpful staff and security provided by Masai warriors. Not many tourists there. A fish village and locals fish from their dhows just offshore. Our room was nice and... More
