We stayed at Kinondo for our honeymoon after 6 days on safari. What a treat. There was only one other couple there when we arrived, so we were almost exclusive. The staff couldn't do enough for us and nothing was any bother at all. Drinks were brought to us, wherever we were and the food that Joshua cooked for us...

We had just settled in and then a family reunion of kenyans arrived for their get together-oh boy what a crowd. 4 of us had to be moved to the cove retreat as the resort was taken over by these people with 11 children in a no children resort ? it seems that the management do not care as long...

Kinondo Retreat is exactly what you need after a week long safari. All there is to do is to relax, eat, drink, dip in the pool or sea and lie on your sunbed. You will get oustanding service, a personal connection to the key staff, quite basic accommodation, quietness and time to relax and switch off. The sacred forest Kaya...

I was on holiday with ( cookietin) who left a review of Kinondo Retreat in January and it seems to have stirred up a hornets nest so I am going to leave my own comments. I am also glad to see that another couple who overlapped with us have backed up what was said, in fact they suffered worse. Everything...

Kinondo is a fabulous place for chilling out, and the staff are exceptional, and will do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable.

I have just returned from a stay at The Kinondo Retreat and I strongly suggest that if you are looking for a peaceful, tropical, and totally relaxing get-away-from-it-all type holiday then this IS the place for you.
