Mombasa, Kenya
Reviewed 1 week ago

Stylish place ...great accommodation...and it seems each room has different interior decor. i stayed in a self catering one bed-roomed apartment...with a wonderful view of the sunset. from my balcony...i could see the Nyali Bridge and parts of old town mombasa. There is a swimming pool downstairs and a nice cosy restaurant where one can have their meals....breakfast..lunch or dinner.

I was worried about the distance into the island, but it has not proved a problem. The food...
