Kutazama is a very unique boutique lodge with only 2 rooms. It is very romantic with very luxurious service. The pool is divine. You can go there to stay or just to enjoy a delicious 3 course lunch. We had a lunch here after hiking to the Sheldricks waterfall in Shimba hills reserve. A great day out.

I spent an excellent time there some years back and will definitely go back. The owners are amazing and so knowledgeable about the entire area. Even your menu for the duration of your stay is personalized. They will make your time there literally unforgettable. You will even feel ashamed to look at your phone. You will disconnect naturally. I strongly...

We were warmly welcomed by Gil who runs the venue with her husband and we felt immediately like at home: meanwhile sipping our welcome drink, her dogs were running around us,...

Gary and Gill and their wonderful staff look after their guests superbly: a unique experience, so that...

The setting is one of kind, beautiful and breathtaking. Rocky hillside in the midst of nature. The hosts are amazing as well as the staff team; the attention to guests is commendable. A most memorable experience. The house dogs also make you feel right at home.

Nibbles: dates with cream cheese, Japanese nuts, crisps and sausage. Melt in your mouth starter of calamari in a very light and crispy batter, coq au vin - the best ever tasted with cauliflower and broccoli au gratin and lightly roasted new potatoes and finally a home made lemon pie that I ate all of (I who NEVER eat desserts)....

“Both private and luxury rondavels are lovely - the farthest away one is probably best for honeymoon couples. It has a kitchen and they can have separate meals with their own chef. The nearer one is used for repeat business.”
