Mawimbi was perfect, I read quite a few online reviews before booking, so I was worried I might have too high expectations but it was everything I wanted and more. First of all what impressed me the most is that beyond clean, mawimbi is immaculate. From the rooms to the beach there was never anything out of place. I loved...

Hotel Mawimbi is one of those places that makes the trip memorable. Plenty of places to call your own on the beach or at the Restaraunt/ bar area- in the sun or in the shade, it's possible to spend the days away never wanting to leave. From the ferry dock it's an easy walk through the village to the hotel....
