My husband and I stayed at Msambweni after a walking and jeep safari. From our arrival at the hotel to the moment we left, we were so well looked after. We stayed in Private Villa 1 which is huge with a pool to die for and a beautiful view. At the side of the villa is a gate. If left open, staff are welcome or if closed means you require privacy. A great idea as we didn't feel cut off or excluded.
The best part of our visit (that will stay with me forever), is how truly wonderful the staff are. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was top notch. They are all so friendly and caring without being too invasive. I couldn't fault anything.
The other enjoyment was the food. Everything tasted delicious and the presentation on beautiful tableware was 100%. The chef has a suggested daily menu. The food is healthy, fresh and well balanced and it is a great way of trying different dishes. If you are not keen on something, the staff make you feel completely at home with suggesting an alternative or tweaking the dish. This is a lovely touch. The table was always set so beautifully with candles and flowers.
All in all, we both had the most restful, happy time and I'm not one for returning twice to places but as we felt so welcomed and it was of a high standard, I feel I would like to return imminently!!
