Msambweni Beach House

Post-safari chill-out spots don’t get much better than this intimate and utterly stylish boutique retreat which arguably has the best infinity pool in Kenya. It is set high on a 40ft cliff overlooking a deserted private beach, on a gloriously remote and unspoiled stretch of the South Kenya Coast, just 20 miles from the Tanzanian border. The sand is spectacularly white and the ocean so stunningly turquoise that you will really feel you have discovered a little slice of Kenyan coastal paradise! It is family owned and run by the charming Belgian, Frederik Vanderhoeven, who has made this heavenly corner of Kenya his home.

SLEEP

Msambweni Beach House offers three Master Rooms and a gorgeous tented Ocean Suite in the main house and three separate exclusive use Private Villas, complete with their own pools and panoramic sea views. The style here is Swahili-inspired - rustic shabby-chic, thatched roofs, white-washed walls, muted furnishings and traditional lanterns. Fresh hibiscus flowers add splashes of colour and the mosquito-net-draped beds ooze romance and serenity.

EAT

The winding jetty ends at a perfect sundowner spot on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean – enjoy pre-dinner drinks here with the sound of lapping waves below! Dining at Msambweni is a pure delight and what’s more, your stay includes a delicious breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and gastronomic dinner. The staff have been extensively trained by a celebratory Belgian chef and you will enjoy seafood, Swahili dishes, Belgian and French cuisine. Dine by the pool or by candlelight under the stars. Mountain biking, private beach picnics and beach BBQ's are all part of the experience and you will also enjoy a de-stress massage on arrival!

PLAY

Snorkelling, fishing, kite surfing, motorised watersports and even a picnic with the elephants and antelope in the nearby Shimba Hills can all be arranged. Access is via a flight from Nairobi to the nearest airstrip at Ukunda followed by a road transfer.
