I spent seven nights on holiday at Kilili. I have to confess that I had never heard of the place before my travel specialist recommended it highly for my time out. I was pleasantly surprised by this small and lovely getaway by the beach!!! There is great attention to detail in the way the place is put together. I loved...

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at Kilili. It was just what we needed after months of hectic wedding planning.It was quiet,the staff were pleasant and the food amazing.We enjoyed the Spa and the atmosphere. We would recommend anyone to visit especially couples who just want to get away and spend time together. We will be back!

Kilili Baharini Resort & Spa is easily reached by tuk tuks to Casuarina road, Malindi or by plane. Attentive staff, willing to be challenged. The beach is devoid of crowding mobs and the sunbeds, just aptly located. Strategic and quaint location allows visits to other tourist places nearby. Many swimming pools... Lovely clean, spacious rooms with a privacy feel. Italian...

The hotel is located outside in a quite area (on Casurina Road) actually far enough from city center, that could be reached by taxi (hard to get them) or by tuk-tuk (easy to get on the street, like NY style, if you wanna feel the Africa spirit). Despite that, considering that city center is not offering lots of special attractions...

We managed to have an amazing time at Kilili Baharini even though it was technically winter in Kenya in June(!). Despite the occasional wintery weather there was still plenty of time to hang out on the beautiful beach reading books, drinking coffee, trying out neighboring restaurants down the beach, etc. The staff was genuinely cheery and happy to have us,...

Loved everything about this place. Lovely spacious rooms, awesome food, attentive staff nothing was too much for them and the location allows one to visit other places. Enjoyed the breakfast by the room terraces, relaxing on the beds by the beach while enjoying cocktailsvery peaceful. Would highly recommend to people looking to detox from the daily stresses of life.

The room, staff and atmosphere of the place redefines the word relaxation. The food was worth every bite. The private pool was an added advantage and we loved soaking up on it. The beach is not overcrowded and the layout in front of the hotel with the sunbeds make it easy to watch the world go by! The staff ensure...

We had a great time during the low season. Still not sure why it's the "low season", as the weather was wonderful, and the water is incredible. Service was great from check-in to check-out. We would recommend this establishment to anyone who is looking for some relaxing beach time.

My husband and I spent two glorious nights here. The dinner menu though slightly limiting had good food. The bar menu is more diverse in terms of options. The wine list is excellent as well as their breakfast. The rooms were clean and felt very private. It's a reasonably priced hotel for a very quaint location
