Well, i don't know even where to begin from. After long working days and hours at work for months all I need was a perfect gateway with family and my girlfriend. We searched for best accommodation in Watamu/Malindi and like luck was on our side we stumbled upon this gem off the North Coast. The road towards the hotel would...

I was your guest in December 2015. We checked in at the hotel on 24/12/15 and checked out on 1/1/2016. This is to convey our gratitude and appreciation for making our 2015 Christmas holiday memorable. We enjoyed every minute that we were at Kivulini, from the time we checked in, the welcome drink was awesome and the welcome from the...

This has the potential to be a great resort, with a lovely location, well-maintained public areas, a lovely pool and great Kenyan staff. The bedrooms and bathrooms are run-down, with exposed electrics and no working telephones; the satellite TV consists of four channels (no international news in English) and has poor reception at times; 'all-inclusive' does not include bottles of...

The Kenyan staff were a fine example of customer service. Nothing was too much trouble - they were polite, chatty (without talking too much) and incredibly accommodating. The resort itself it idyllic - beautiful pool with a view of the beach and a luxury feel across the resort. You couldn't help but relax in these surroundings with the lovely weather...

There is a 2.5KM rough ride from where the tarmac road ends. It looks scary especially at night. It meant that i wouldn't be able to comfortably sample the Malindi nightlife during my stay. All else was great from the service to the rooms to the spa. I didnt have much of their food but breakfast was good. I would...

I recommend this hotel for those who want to enjoy the nice hospitality, swimming pool, and various types of food. The hotel is in a quiet place away from the city. The beach in front of the hotel is not for swimming, but they have a shuttle who drives you for free to the near Wayungu beach which is 3...

We stayed here for two nights in December 2014. The check-in process was slow even though the staff were friendly. We were welcomed with fresh juice which was very refreshing, however it took long for one of the staff checking us in to run my fiancé’s card for payment. It was until Paula the manager came to her rescue and...
