All was superb, rooms, facilities, service. Breakfast was royal and place was very family friendly. Internet was tempramental. Lunch & dinner at restaurant whilst quality in many aspects failed to wow on food factor. Better to eat outside. Private pools were enjoyed by all. Would go again.

Stayed here for a weekend to chill by the sea. The hotel is smart, arranged around a number of courtyards with swimming pools. There is a large smart lounge to hang out and down by the beach is another large pool. The beach is lovely as is the beach furniture. Enjoyed it a lot.

Kilili is located right on the beach and very close to town. Excellent for spending the day lazing about and walking along the beach front during low tide. Easy access to very good restaurants nearby and La Rosada, probably the best Italian restaurant in Malindi, is a 5 minutes walk away, by the beach during the day and by the... More

This was a short business stay but was packed with wonderful memories... The cottage rooms are large, airy, super clean, private with small pools just right outside... the spa... More

The hotel was empty with only a few rooms occupied yet there was no negotiation possible in terms of price to the point that when... More

My first visit to kilili Baharini and to malindi . The perfect place to stay . Helpful staff , clean and well maintained rooms, absolutely spacious. Home away from home ! There was a problem with one of their water pumps, hence flow was limited. But apart, from that, the perfect place!

After looking around for an ideal place to commemorate our 10th Wedding Anniversary we settled on Kilili Baharini Spa & Resort in Malindi. We were not disappointed.

Relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, lots of green spots that surround the small villas. Private little outdoor refreshing during the sunset. Nice food and good service. Villas are big and comfortable, bed were a bit too hard for us but apart from this we had a great time.
