Kinondo Kwetu


With the swaying palms and sugary white sands of Diani Beach on its doorstep, Kinondo Kwetu evokes a sense of barefoot luxury and a tranquil home-away-from-home vibe. With fresh seafood on your plate, sand between your toes and traditional African décor in your room, you’ll feel as if you found a private beachside hideaway.

Hosting no more than 38 guests, you’ll enjoy an intimate and personalised experience here – and with two kitchens in separate buildings, it’s even possible to book half of the resort for a large party. The décor in each room is very authentic and rustic, reminding you that although you’re relaxing in a beachside oasis, Kenya’s wonderful traditional safaris are still close-by.

There are two Garden Single Rooms, located in the Mama Tina Villa and sharing a bathroom, whilst the Garden Double Room in the same villa has its own en-suite bathroom. Cottages One, Two and Three have double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a gorgeous wooden veranda, and are located only a few steps from the beach, whilst Cottage Four has one double bedroom connecting to a single bedroom, with a shared bathroom and veranda.

The Mama Taa Villa is home to two Double Rooms with an en-suite bathroom, a private veranda and beautiful sea views, whilst the four Family Rooms feature a double sea-view bedroom connecting to a twin bedroom. Large families will relish in the seclusion of the Family Beach Cottage, a two-floor cottage featuring a double en-suite bedroom with a balcony on the upper floor, and one double en-suite bedroom connecting to a single bedroom downstairs. The Andersson Room is ideal for younger families too, sleeping two adults and two children and featuring a gorgeous sea-view balcony and easy access to the beach.

With the beach only 30 metres away, the resort offers plenty of fantastic recreational opportunities including snorkelling, scuba diving, and boat excursions to Paradise Lost Island. After a day of lapping up the sun or embarking on exciting water sports, the three-course set menus for lunch and dinner are delicious, offering fresh seafood and local fruit and vegetables. With no set dining area, meals can be devoured wherever you please, whether you fancy dining in your room, having a romantic evening on the beach, or tucking into a fresh lunch in the gardens.
