Highly recommended - Well done Henk and Elma, we had a wonderful break, pity it was for only for 5 nights - could have stayed a week or two longer. New Years Eve bash was absolutely superb - a big hand to you both and your F&B service and kitchen teams.

The ruins are amazing, The history of Muslim growth back to 870AD is highlighted in ruins located about 10kms from Kilifi Kenya. Take a walk back into history, The ruins are being excavated as you walk through The guide is extremely knowledgeable.
