Fodor's Expert Review Kinondo Kwetu

Diani Beach Rd., Kinondo, Kwale, 80401, Kenya Fodor's Choice

One of Kenya's finest boutique resorts, Kinondo Kwetu Beach Resort was built in an idyllic beachfront location in a section of sacred forest. Tribal elders advised on the layout so that the most important trees—ancient baobabs included—were preserved, adding a certain spirituality to this exclusive and spacious retreat. The exquisitely appointed suites are thoughtfully orientated, facing either the sea or one of the two swimming pools, to ensure maximum privacy. Owned by distant relatives of Karen Blixen, Kinondo Kwetu offers a very personal "Out of Africa" experience, while the thoughtful decor and original African artefacts continually transport you to fascinating parts of the continent. All around the property—along the beach and in alcoves in the extensive gardens—you'll find daybeds and loungers inviting you to soak up the serene atmosphere.
