A Divine Experience

Savor the Moment

There aren't enough words to describe how amazing this property is, from the moment we
left the highway a magical holiday began. The staff, Jackson in particular, are the most
genuine, friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. The room is itself, is a pretty decent size bungalow,
is rustic but everything is where you want it, and works perfectly.

Yes, all of our award winning properties are located right in front of a white sandy beach

Similar to majority of the "Swahili Coast" our beaches are tidal and the tide timings change with each season. (you may google exact high and low tide timings for your specific stay with us) Low tide is a wonderful opportunity to take a free guided "Reef Safari" and discover some of our wonderful marine life.
