Kola Beach is a nice resort north of Malindi. We must have booked at a slow time of year because we were the only guests for 2 of 3 nights. So they were kind enough to upgrade our room from a twin shared, to 2 single rooms. The pool and beach area are well taken care of. The food selections... More

I would recommend people to... More

The staffs were awesome and courteous. There was lots of privacy in the villas and the rooms were clean and cozy. The golden beach was perfect for a morning stroll. The food was excellent and tasty; the chef was very creative with the menu. The art works around the resort is fantastic!

If you are looking for a great place to go relax and reflect, this is it. Beach is clean and away from the constant disturbance of people trying to sell you something. The food was good but could use a bit of variety. The service was excellent, and I even got a free room upgrade. The place overall is fantastic.... More
