Ziwa Beach Resort is more a boutique hotel than commercial holiday resort. It's ambiance and unique style is what sets it apart from the rest. The entire building is made up of a collection of reconstituted drift-wood, carved to various degrees of intricacy. During our stay a man was tasked with carving the columns in and around the bar. He...

I had the most amazing experience staying at this resort. This place was tucked away in a beautiful area in Bamburi, Mombasa. I stayed here for 5 days and I enjoyed every minute of it. January was a lovely month to go. It wasn't too busy, and we had amazing service. The guest service was wonderful- they helped us carry...

A Very Nice Place, Cozy Ambience, Very serene and trouble free. The bar area and the pool are nice, the only issue is that that water is a bit salty, but that cannot be helped I think as it is near to the sea. other than that it is a lovely place to spend some quiet evenings.

The rooms and the outside patio are great. The pool is well kept and large enough. Rather quiet pool and bar , and the food is less than desirable. However they are located right next to one of the best resturants in town. The service and staff are excellent.

I have a conflicted review about this place as it was both shockingly good and bad so will summarize it as follows 1. Truly right on the beach, beautiful; but was undergoing renovations so pool isn't present yet still marketed 2. easy access to other restaurants on the beach, 3. staff helpful though slow, menu options limiting, even for soft...
