Relaxing stay in beautiful beach lodge away from the crowds

My partner and I stayed at this lodge for 3 nights and we really loved it. We wanted to avoid the crowds of Diani and were happy to find this lodge: it offered the comfort you would expect in a tourist place, but situated on the beach in a lovely village close to the charming fisherman's town of Shimoni. We enjoyed taking the bodaboda through the village and the snorkeling and dolphin watching around Shimoni / Wasini Island and the owners are currently setting up more activities like kite surfing. The lodge is relatively new and the owners put a lot of care into rebuilding this place. The staff was friendly, the food was nice and we felt well taken care of. Would definitely recommend and hope to be able to come back!

Wonderful bubble of peacefulness

The place looks amazing. It’s been freshly renovated with a lot of taste and they put a lot of effort into making it simple yet elegant. The staff make you feel at home and are really helpful. Breakfast was everything we could’ve dreamed of. We spent 2 entire days hanging out and didn’t get bored thanks to the view, the pool, the kayak, the hammocks, the chess and table football games. Would 100% recommend for a relaxing stay, out of the agitation from Diani or other mass tourism destinations.

The hotel is quite incredible, architectonically somewhere between ancient Swahili style and Grimm's fairy tales, right on the beach with spectacular views of the sunrise. The waves of the nightly high tide will be your lullaby. You will find there all kinds of accommodations, from the luxury tent for two to the spacious family apartment. The hotel also offers the possibility of various activities, like kayaking, kite surfing, volleyball, table football, pool, or excursions up the river through the mangrove forests, as well as a trip to the marine national park Kisite. The staff are all absolutely marvelous and helpful. One can easily feel at home there, we even extended our stay. Breakfast is copious and varied. The cook also makes probably the best hamburger (the Mwazaro burger, and not only) of all the Kenyan coast. We can highly recommend this place and will for sure go back there soon.

Top Preisleistungsverhältnis

Wir haben das Hotel ausgesucht, um nach 2 Nächten am Diani Beach etwas Ruhe zu finden - dafür ist es perfekt. Frühstück (und wenn man möchte auch Mittag- und Abendessen) wird im Hotelrestaurant serviert, alles was wir gegessen haben, war sehr lecker. Besonders empfehlen würde ich die Ravioli, die ganz eindeutige frisch selbstgemacht waren! Das Zimmer war stilvoll eingerichtet, bequemes Bett, alles sehr sauber. Vielleicht wichtig zu wissen: eine Klimaanlage gibt es nicht, mit dem Ventilator kamen wir aber sehr gut aus. Das Personal war sehr freundlich, wir haben uns einfach nur wohlgefühlt. Eigentlich hatten wir nur eine Nacht gebucht, sind aber 3 geblieben. Man ist schnell in Shimoni (wo man zB Touren in den Marine Nationalpark machen kann). Das Hotel hat einen schönen Pool, wo wir am ersten Nachmittag frische Kokosnüsse als Welcome Drink serviert bekamen. Die Lage ist direkt am Meer. Mit Frühstück etwas über 40€ pro Person pro Nacht ist finde ich nicht zu toppen für diese Unterkunft. Wenn ich mal wieder hier bin, würde ich es definitiv erneut buchen. Auf dem Zimmer hatten wir kein WLAN, allerdings gab es im Restaurant gutes WLAN und kenianische SIMCards sind günstig, also war das nicht wirklich ein Problem.

This is a real hidden gem. Perfect for a secluded getaway. Looking forward to another visit

This is a real gem! The location is absolutely gorgeous, and the staff is extremely warm and welcoming. The facilities were sparkling clean. The food was excellent, especially freshly caught seafood.

Ein traumhafter Ort, nur 40 km südlich von Diani-Beach, aber viel ruhiger. Sehr gutes Essen, Alle hier sind sehr nett und freundlich. Der Marinenationalpark in Shimoni ist nur 10 Minuten entfernt.

Traumhafter Ort in wunderschöner Natur

Die Unterkunft ist der Wahnsinn! Perfekte, ruhige Lage abseits des Trubels direkt am Mangrovenwald mit eigenen, wunderschönen Strandabschnitt! Der Strand ist wunderbar zum schwimmen und bei Ebbe kann man herrlich den Strand entlang spazieren. Wir durften sogar mit dem Staff Mangrovenbäume pflanzen. Die Community Projekte wie die Mangroven Restoration und Sea Weed Farmen setzen sich wirklich für den Erhalt der Umwelt ein. Das Tauchen in dem nahegelegenen Kisite Nationalpark ist unglaublich artenreich mit tollen intakten Riffen. Das Personal im Mwazaro ist super freundlich! Wir haben ihre Energie und Begeisterung jederzeit gespürt:) Ein persönliches Highlight war das Fußballspielen am Strand mit Sami:) Der Transport hat reibungslos funktioniert!

A tropical paradise

An outstandingly beautiful, quiet and friendly place with great location directly at a marvelous lagoon. The resort has been lovingly renovated end of 2022, and all accomodation is of high quality and new. All was very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. There is a bar and a restaurant with excellent food. At low tide you can enjoy a walk of several kilometers along the coast through the mangroves, or you can go on a boat trip along a mangrove-cladded river with many birds (including a colony of kingfisher) looking for crocodiles.
