Kinondo Kwetu is a home away from home… a stunning family-run lodge on the idyllic Kenyan coast. The lodge has maintained its high standard of luxury and serenity, encouraging guests to wind down from their safari, journey or maybe just general day-to-day stresses. It offers a wide range of water and off-water activities, making it a fun, stylish and homely beach property.


Situated on Diani Beach, about an a hour and a half south of Mombassa, Kinondo Kwetu offers a private spot of luxury and seclusion. The white-sand beach not only offers peace and tranquility, but also an array of water activities (snorkeling, diving, boat excursions and wind surfing) and off the water activities such as horse riding, seeing the birth of turtles, tennis, golf, exercise classes and many more!


The lodge can accommodate up to 38 guests in a combination of single and double rooms, cottages and family villa rooms. The lodge is split into two separate buildings and with their own kitchen, they are both self-sufficient. Kinondo Kwetu has two swimming pools, a tennis court, a sauna and spa for those who are looking for a bit of pampering.


Each of the room types- standard rooms, cottages, villas and suites- are different in terms of size, accommodation, layout and its facilities. The rooms are all traditionally designed with Swahili colours, tones and fabrics, giving the rooms a warm African feel to them. There is no fixed dining at Kinondo, instead guests can enjoy a three-course lunch on the beach and choose where they would like to eat dinner, with a choice of charming spots in the garden, on the beach or in the lodges.


Plenty of activities and facilities to keep boredom at bay

May be too quiet for some as it is off the beaten-track
