Just returned from a two week holiday at Kokonut - now called Kinondo Retreat. We cannot praise it enough. If what you are looking for is a place to relax and unwind then it can't be beaten1 If you are looking for loud music, clubbing internet access etc - then this isn't the place for you. The staff are fantastic...

The journey from Mombassa to the hotel was long, hot and bumpy - however that was soon forgotton! From the moment we arrived, we were given personal attention and excellent service. Our room was simply decorated but comfy (plus we were rarely inside!!). The hotel gardens were quite and relaxing with unusual wildlife around you, including monkeys and hornbills. the...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Kokonut Cottages for one week at the end of Feburary. The staff here were fabulous, overly nice and very very helpful. Our maid was also very sweet, dressing our bed everyday with different flowers and messages. The place is so small that the staff know where you are at all times, and what you...

My wife an I spent one week at Kokonut Cottages for our honeymoon. I had kept the trip a total secret and, as this was not only our first trip to Kenya, but also my wife's first ever long-haul journey, I was a little apprehensive. We transferred at Nairobi for the flight to Mombassa - arriving there at about nine...

Kokonut Resort or Kokonut Cottages as it used to be known is the perfect place to unwind and relax. 5 thatched roofed cottages simply furnished surrounded by beautiful gardens set in a quiet location within a 2 minute walk of a tropical beach. Yes its off the beaten track but that is the whole beauty of this amazing little resort....
