“Privacy and tranquility on a secluded palm fringed peninsula. Empty beaches, coral gardens and indigenous forest surround individual cottages, each vibrantly decorated with local fabrics and with private verandahs. A romantic, unspoiled and idyllic beach retreat with plenty of water sports.”

Hotel Overview

“An alternative to the coastal hotspots of Diani beach and Lamu, this small private lodge offers empty beaches, coral gardens and indigenous forest. Sixteen thatched local style cottages are exquisitely and vibrantly decorated with local fabrics but never lose the feel of the sea and sand just beyond your private verandah. Delicious meals are served, relaxed and casual on the beach, in the dining room or on board the Manda Bay dhow. Run by two couples of third generation Kenyans, they provide the means to relax and unwind after a safari trip, but if you want more action, it's all here too - your choice.”
