Kitu Kidogo Cottages

Traveler (40)

Room & Suite (8)


Kitu Kidogo is an exclusive holiday retreat tucked away in a coastal indigenous forest that has been around for centuries. It comprises of two beautiful cottages made out of coral, sandstone and wood showing off the various textures of the ancient Swahili coastline. Each cottage is dressed with intricately hand carved Lamu furniture, Rajhastani and South African soft furnishings and Afghani and Ethiopian wool Rugs. The walls reflect our travels around the globe. Each wall piece has been carefully selected to fit in with the theme of the cottage giving the spaces an exotic but at the same time a harmonious look. The palm lamp shades highlight the beauty of each piece with its soft glow. What the cottage evokes is memories of the old Africa influenced by the spice trade route! Kitu Kidogo is ideal for families, groups and couples. If you are looking for comfort, style, privacy and personalized service then this is the perfect holiday home for you!

The cottages provide for a space where a group or couple can really kick back and have a holiday. Conveniently located next to 40 Thieves (for the night lovers) and some shops. I would recommend that you put yourself in the very capable hands of the Bruno, the chef/caretaker on

We were 5 of us who took the 2 bedroom cottage for 3 nights. It is unbelievably luxurious and we got a really good deal for the stay. They recommend a chef - Bruno who is really very good. He cooked all our meals for 2 days and we totally enjoyed it. The cottage is 5 min walking

"The two bedroom cottage is much much better than the one bedroom one"
"The bedroom on the right is a bigger room.... but smaller room very comfortable too. The lighting is a little dark in both rooms, the air conditioning was such a plus in both bedrooms!"
"Kitu Kidogo is very private and uncrowded with two cottages and 5 minutes walk to the beach its irresistible"
"Both rooms great!"
"The bigger cottage is a bit pricier, but very much worth it!"
