Spacious villas,discreet,lots of pools to relax in and well trained staff.The restaurant on the beach,though small,has great ambience and very tasty seafood delicacies.Whether for a family weekend or a couple's retreat,this is the place to stay.

We were there with our family and despite the high level of the property, my kids were made to feel totally welcome.

We are just back from a most pleasant long weekend at the Almanara Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas on the Kenyan coast south of Mombasa. The 5 room hotel is right on the beach although secluded from the prying eyes of beach wanderers by wafting palm trees and other vegitation, but with tempting glimses of the turquoise sea beyond.

We started our honeymoon with 3 nights at Almanara and it was fantastic. We highly recommend this as a honeymoon destination and if you really want to escape from city life and in a beautiful setting.
