Driftwood Beach Club
First opened in 1963 the Driftwood Beach Club is a family-friendly, owner-managed, bungalow-style beach hotel set on Silversands beach on the southern outskirts of Malindi town on Kenya’s north coast. Unfortunately, as of March 2015 we cannot recommend this property because the UK's foreign office has advised against travel to this area – Mombasa Island to the Tana Delta.
Our view of Driftwood Beach Club
We love the Driftwood for its very comfortably established and pretty grounds, its friendly simplicity, consistently good service and excellent food. We don’t mind the fact that the rooms are plain, verging on ‘adequate’, and we don’t mind the absence of room fridges, TVs, coffee and tea making and other accoutrements because we’d rather be on the beach, or by the pool or just lounging in the wonderful bar. And in our experience there are few places on the Kenya coast that are more enjoyable for those activities than the Driftwood.
