The service in this hotel is A1, they are genuinely concerned about the comfort of their guests. There is a feeling of home away from home only better as one doesn't lift a finger to do anything. My family was very delighted with the service and the food. The menu is a la carte and food is very few fresh... More

I loved every moment I spent in that palace. From the cocktail given to me at my arrival to the quality of service from the team, it was the warmest reception ever. The food is 5 star quality. No pressure on timing of food or what you want to eat. I totally recommend this hotel.

What a wonderful stay! This hotel gave the feeling of staying in a really large house. The rooms felt extremely private and were very spacious and beautifully decorated. I stayed in a room above the pool with an ocean view and it was breathtaking. The service was immaculate and I was greeted by my name every morning by the staff.... More

I visited the coast of Kenya for the first time and the Maji ensured that I will visit again and as often as I can. Room #14 is excellent, I needed to soak in that tub. Thanks Maji I will definitely be back again.

With just 15 rooms you get personal attention. The staff friendliness surpasses the best international benchmark - even the gardiner is hell bent on making your stay unbelievable. The location and decor cannot be better. This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at!!!!! Congratulation to the Maji team. You guys deserve wide recognition. Eve Rau

My mom had never been to the Indian Ocean so when she cam to Kenya we decided a tropical weekend away was a must. The Maji made it a highlight of her whole stay and I will certainly be returning again and again. They gave me a great low season resident rate so it was very cost friendly, but I... More
