Stayed at the hotel in August. We were happy with the upgrade and villa 1 is definetly the best villa. Concern was that the TV in our room had a problem and their food was average as compared to the other hotels we stayed at. It's good for families. Although the beach is a bit narrow. Most hotels give a...

We drove down from Diani Beach after spending our first three nights of being in Kenya partying our hearts out. It was a little difficult to find (a map was emailed to us but we failed to take it with us) and it was about 15 minutes off the main road, but the villagers were all helpful & willing to...

We visited Msambweni Beach House recently and were blown away by the beauty of the place and its surroundings. The hotel is perched on a small cliff, surrounded by an abundant tropical garden and overlooking the Indian Ocean. It has been masterfully visualized, with breathtakingly beautiful perspectives everywhere you look. There is a sophisticated elegance to the choice of its...

I stayed here for 3 nights in late December 2014 when my original accommodation let me down. It's absolutely beautiful...the views from the pool are stunning, the grounds are lovely and the beach is magnificent. The food was a real highlight, I loved the personalised approach in that they discussed what the chef was preparing with you in the morning...

We had a wonderful stay. Everybody made everything / anything for us to relax and spend a fantastic extended weekend. Very professional staff. The food is delicious, the massages are perfect, the house (private villa I) is beautifully decorated, the swimming pool with natural water is a dream! A WAW stay!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. It was perfect. We stayed in Villa II on the first night (it was available just for the first night and the hotel manager very kindly upgraded us for the night). On the second night we stayed in the Ocean suite. The villa was excellent and stunning...
