We have just spent 10 of the very best days of our lives at Manda Bay on Manda Island near Lamu in Kenya. Four families (25 people) had the most incredible holiday in the most perfect place in all of Kenya. The owners, Fuzz & Bimbi Dyer and their staff are the most organized people you could wish for on such a holiday and everything works brilliantly. The food was exceptional, meal after meal, the service wherever we were was really impeccable, the rooms always very comfortable and very well serviced and the venue just simply unbeatable anywhere in the world. Our kids all learnt to kitesurf and were given excellent instruction by Fuzz & Bimbi's sons Harry and William, they also waterskied, went deep sea fishing and caught Sailfish and we were able to spend hot and balmy days on "Utamanduni", the Manda Bay dhow which is the most perfect "lagoon saloon". We all felt completely safe at the resort with it's very well planned and managed security system and what with the Kenyan military having occupied the south of Somalia up to Kismayu, Manda Bay is now probably the safest place to visit on the whole planet !!!! There is so much that kept us all occupied, what ever sport we wanted to do, or we were able to just relax around the pool and take a complete break. It is without doubt the very best holiday we have ever had and I personally can not recommend the resort strongly enough.mit is a "bucket list" place to visit !!! Thanks Fuzz & Bimbi for making it just so special for us all !!! Clive Grinaker.
