I spent a wonderful two weeks at Mwazaro. I was there in the quiet season so my experience will be very different to what it would be like in the busy period – I was the only guest for the first week! The staff made me feel like a VIP: the chef asked my favourite meal so I could be... More

I was there in the off season, so there were only two guests. The cottages are right on the beach. So lovely and peaceful to sleep with the sound of the ocean. No ambient light to disturb the beautiful sky. The food was delicious. This ecolodge is about 8 km from the asphalt road. Head toward Shimoni on a good... More

Very friendly personel. very delicious food. It's a bit to expensive. In bungalows, the night is quite noisy. You can hear the animals very well, sometimes bush babys come in the room (no danger, they just try to find food) because the walls are made of palm leaves. The moskito nets had some holes. I recommend to book a room,... More

We spent a week here prior to going on Safari - it was early December and just before the main season started. Although aimed at kitesurfers as the warm shallow waters and constant breeze make this a perfect location for the sport - it is also an a ideal getaway for anyone wanting to avoid the bustle of Diani.

Plan to stay at least one week. Chill and watch the sea. Great beach and inlets for combing. Good winds for surfing. Rod fishing then eat your catch or enjoy the menu. Recommend the crab - cake starter and claws main course. Try also the chocolate pudding...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Mwazaro Beach Resort is located at the southern east coast of Africa. There is a main building with a dining area and small restaurant, a beach bar and a chill out area. Our Lodge has three different categories of accommodation:Coral House Lower Floor: These rooms in the luxury stone bungalows have a living room, bedroom and a private bathroom with hot water. There is a sea view terrace with a stunning view of the spot. The rooms are also equipped with a comfortable double bed, electricity and a fan. Coral House - Upper Floor:The rooms are located on the upper floor of the unique stone bungalows, where you have a beautiful sea view terrace. Another highlight of the Coral House Upper Floor is the chic, large bathroom with a view of the mangrove jungle. A stylish ambience creates the living area with african furniture. Palm Bungalows: These traditional African cottages are made of wood, covered with palm leaves. They are situated directly at the beach. Each Makuti has a comfortable double bed and a spacious terrace with a perfect view to the beach. The nine wooden Makuti Cottages share three ample bathhouses with separate toilets and showers which will be cleaned daily. The two stone Makutis has each their own, external sanitary room. Lodge Apartments: These apartments are part of the main building. Both have two bedrooms and a private bathroom. The apartment Sirius additionally has a large living room and a second lavatory. A spacious terrace offers you a great view to the spot. They are perfect for families or small groups. Half board always included! All of our Kenyan Island packages include breakfast and dinner. We have no cheesy buffets here! Our in-house chef daily prepares a wide range of fresh, delicious meals. We do our best to accommodate all dietary preferences. Vegetarian? Pescatarian?

There you’ll find typical African dishes as well as western food such as sandwiches, burgers and seafood dishes, all at reasonable pricesActivities: There is a whole lot more to do in Kenya than just relaxing at the beach. Starting from the Lodge we have plenty of Activities to offer.
