Kinondo Kwetu was an amazing experience. Beyond SUPER service during the whole stay. It's family friendly, intimate with a really personal touch in every detail. Wherever you go there is always a genuine smile. The big pool area is perfect for kids (our was 2 and 7) and we never got tired of the surroundings. It somehow just felt like...

Kinondo Kwetu is the nicest and most relaxed place I have ever visited (compared to Seychelles, Mauritius, Thailand, Sri Lanka etc). Everything from food, staff, rooms etc is very welcoming and cosy.

This is the third time in six years we enjoyed Kinondo Kwetu and we are as satisfied as always. This is a unique place! Even though the hotel was fully-booked you hardly see other guests during the stay. Such a very luxurious but laid back and relaxed place.

Third time at this lovely luxurious family friendly hotel. And not the last! In the exotic Kenya we feel at home at Kinondo Kwetu, with the friendly and attentive staff, beautiful cottages and magnificent surroundings. Our 3 kids (8, 5 and 1) never wanted to leave. Always something fun happening, lovely pools and fantastic beach! Can't wait to go back!
