About
Description
We invite You to Hotel Sonrisa, with only ten rooms. It is personal, private and has a lovely beautiful karma about it. Sonrisa is located directly on the stunning sandy white beach called Galu Kinondo (Diani More Beach), the place which should satisfy even the most improper dreamers seeking for the archetype of tropical beach. Please come and relax. Let us spoil you. Less
