I stayed here with my large family (9 people in total) in August 2013 and it was quite simply the best, most beautiful place we have ever stayed. And I have stayed a lot of places.
Kinondo Kwetu is amazing down to the last detail - with the beautiful surroundings, the décor and African art objects (difficult to find those kind of pieces now), the all-attentive and super-friendly staff, luxurious rooms, wonderful and varied menu, and a warm and laid-back atmosphere.
Add to that their responsible tourism approach, the eco-friendly running of the hotel, the community projects, and the abundance of Colobus monkeys (an endangered species); this place ticks all the boxes.
It's opulently luxurious and down to earth all at the same time; I don't know how the couple running the place managed to create this little heaven of casual yet astounding beauty - but it's wonderful to be in.
