Kinondo Kwetu review

Kinondo Kwetu is beautiful. All the outside areas, the beach, the pools and the bar/restaurant area are really lovely. Our rustic beach cottage was in a great location, we could see the beach from our outside decking. 

It was very quiet when we were there with only around 5 other rooms taken which meant we had the beach and the pools to ourselves most of the stay, however there are loads of sun beds and the main pool is very big so I don't think space would be a problem even when it's full.

The beach was lovely, it was great for a walk and a swim when the tide was in. They have discrete security staff on the grounds at all times so it felt quite safe and secure. All the staff were really helpful and friendly.

The breakfast was ample, however lunch and dinner were just okay. Their vegetarian options were limited. We stayed for 4 nights and on the 4th night they wanted to give me what I'd had on the first night for dinner. 

All the excursions they offered were mega expensive ie 600 us dollars to have a boat trip to the marine park. The next place we stayed in Diani did similar trips but for a lot less.

Paradise!

We cannot fault a single aspect. The service from top to bottom was exemplary without being overstated, and nothing was too much trouble.

I would say that we experienced the finest and most appropriate level of service and friendliness without comparison anywhere in the World we have travelled, from Australia to Singapore, South America, the Caribbean, numerous islands, and cruises with the best including Seabourne.

This is a real gem!

Kinondo Kwetu review

Delightful retreat, lovely food and service. We more or less just relaxed by the beach, had massages, used the cliff top gym and swam in the beautiful pool. A perfect end to six days of safari which takes it out of you!

perfect place to relax after safari

This hotel is a little gem! After a great safari it is lovely to take time to relax completely.

We were warmly welcomed by Ana who explained everything to us and took us to our cottages. The staff were delightful and always available but not intrusive.

All round the grounds there are numerous chairs and benches beautifully decorated with colourful cushions. All placed in a little corner of peace. Some in the shade, most with fabulous views of the Indian Ocean.

It seems you can always find a little place to be alone and take in the view.

I loved that everything was out for us to help ourselves, drinks by the pool, towels by pool and sea, tea and coffee stations at various points in the grounds. Kayaks and snorkel equipment on the beach.

There is a yoga station and some morning classes, also some rather outdated gym equipment on a cliff giving it a fantastic view out to sea. Very therapeutic!

The food was good, there was a set menu for both lunch and dinner but other things were available on request. The best meal was the Sunday curry lunch!

In the same spirit of informality lunch and dinner is taken in different places throughout your stay.

This was a perfect end to our holiday but guests should realise it is not suitable for trips to Mombasa, the Marine Park, or safaris in Tsavo. It is a good one and half hours drive to Mombasa on slow roads. Also there are no local shops, bars or restaurants.

The beach is beautiful but there is a wide stretch of coral beyond the beach which means you need shoes. The owners have made a concrete causeway below waterline so that it is possible to walk beyond the coral to swim.

Fantastic hotel - the most relaxing time ever

Absolutely wonderful beach hotel where we had the most relaxing few days at the coast after a week on safari. I cannot praise the hotel enough!

It was quite quiet but even if it was busy the hotel would never feel crowded as there are so many little areas to sit in and enjoy peace and quiet. We loved the fact there is no dining room - finding where our lunch or dinner were being served, from the pool to the beach hut, was great fun and always a surprise. The food was outstanding.

Attention to detail was apparent everywhere and the genuine interest of the managers was great. We had expected to explore a bit and eat out a couple of times - we never left the hotel!

Kinondo Kwetu review

A great place to chill and relax and yet still we could be active with water skiing and boat trips, the on site facilities were good and readily accessible.

Beach paradise at Kinondo Kwetu

Our five days at Kinondo Kwetu were the perfect way to end our honeymoon.

Food and drink were amazing, with dinners served at different venues across the resort, which was a lovely touch. The pools are great and kayaking/diving facilities are wonderful. It was all made so easy for us. Excellent massages and yoga classes overlooking the sea - the dream!

An added bonus was the tennis court, which allowed us to be a little more active when we wanted to be!
