Manfriday's Mida Cove: picture gallery


Manfriday's Mida Cove is a luxurious and remote lodge on Kenya's coast,…
…located at the mouth of Mida Creek, just south of Watamu.
It consists of four beach villas…
…which differ in size and their individual setup,…
…yet are furnished and decorated in the same unique style.
All have whitewashed walls and stone floors…
…and are decorated with much attention to detail,...
...be it in the coral curtains next to the shower or the lovely shelves made from reclaimed wood.
We especially enjoyed the laid-back and sociable atmosphere at the lodge,…
…which is enhanced by plenty of comfortable sitting areas,…
…both outside and inside, private or communal.
All of them are shaded and some offer lovely views over the surroundings.
At the well-stocked bar your delightful hosts serve and enjoy cocktails with the guests.
During our last visit, the food at Manfriday's was fresh and delicious,…
…with a varied breakfast served directly beside the pool.
The pool is shaded by sun nets…
…and surrounded by further comfy lounging spots,…
…and sun loujngers.
Alternatively, enjoy your days here on the lovely sandy beach,…
…which is usually deserted and so offers undisturbed relaxation.
