Honest review of Kilindi
The concept of Kilindi is great.
Neil Rocher (who designed Chongwe River House where we've also stayed) has created a really interesting hotel with great rooms. However, we understand that Kilindi is, perhaps, about to undergo a change of management which can only be for the good.
All the basics are there but certain things were unacceptable, especially for the price.
The situation of the Kilindi is beautiful with stunning views accross the sea. The pavillions are also very nice and the food delicious. The central pool and sunsets are beautiful.
It is clear that the accomodation is still new and there are some things that could be improved; most importantly;
- there is no way of contacting the staff from your room without walking to the main lodge
- it would be nice to have a fridge in the room as water gets hot quickly!
- there is no information on the activities / spa treatments in the room so hard to know what to do / ask for
