Kinodo Kwetu, Kenya
Described as a ‘Home Away from Home’ (Kinondo Kwetu means ‘Our Home at Kinondo’ in Swahili), this small, charming all-inclusive hideaway on the Kenya Coast is set on the powder white sands of quiet Galu Beach at the far southern end of Diani.
The rustic chic Scandinavian design reflects the style of the Swedish owners, Ida and Filip Andersson (Filip is related to Baron Blixen of ‘Out of Africa’ fame). Filip and Ida visited the coast in 2004 and decided to stay! Being family owned and run, the service is warm and genuine, whilst the beach is pristine and the water is clear and turquoise.
Accommodation is provided in a series of suites and cottages including a two-bedroomed suite and a three-bedroomed cottage. It’s just a 20 minute drive from Ukunda airport so it’s perfect for a post-safari wind down!
Yoga is a big thing here and there’s also tennis, horse riding (Kinondo Kwetu has its own stables), two swimming pools and a host of watersports including kite surfing, water skiing, wind surfing, sailing, canoeing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving. Riders can canter along the beach or through the protected Kaya forest close-by. And even if you haven’t been on safari – you’re bound to make an acquaintance with the colobus monkeys and you can see elephants and antelope on a trip to the Shimba Hills!
