I went to Swahili Beach Resort with my boyfriend and another couple. We do not usually go to 'resort' type hotels but this was perfect for what we wanted to do... totally relax in gorgeous surroundings ... with a spot of kite surfing thrown in!
The North Africa / Indian influences in the architecture and design are gorgeous and really lend themselves to a feeling of space with open views from the lobby to the incedible swimming pool and beyond to the private, glistening beach. The rooms are large, with their own private terraces (try to get one with a sea view!) and beautifully decorated, luxurious without being over the top. The real highlight is the pool which forms the centerpiece for the hotel ... I think i counted about 10 different little pools, all joined together by waterfalls and little bridges.
Feeling brave, I had a thai massage at the hotel which was one of the best I've ever had.
I would most definately reccommend the Swahili Beach to friends and family and anyone who wants a sea side relax in very comfortable surroundings but somewhere you feel able to wear flip flops and not feel too scruffy!
