As described by other reviewers, this place is crammed with African antiques and curios. With only 5 large rooms, and very spacious public areas, it feels more like staying in a private villa. We were the only guests there in the second week of January, so obviously very quiet. Staff very helpful. Could be picky about some aspects of the visit - until you remember the relatively low price being paid for such facilities. The Restaurant and bar area is probably one of the nicest places to relax in of any place I have been to in Kenya, and the evening meal was very good, though as mentioned in other reviews it is seriously overpriced (particularly starters and desserts) when compared to other top end places in Kenya. Whilst probably not for everyone, this is a very smart and unusual place, 15 mins from the beach (but pool is lovely), it is not your usual run of the mill beach resort, but a good place if you want to just relax and read.
