Kinondo Kwetu

Located on a tranquil private beach on the southern coast of Kenya, Kinondo Kwetu is a small all-inclusive luxury resort overlooking the Indian Ocean – an ideal honeymoon hideaway or just the retreat where we all need to get away from it all.

Family-owned and run, it is well distanced from any neighbours and can only accommodate a total of 38 guests in a selection of rooms and cottages furnished with Swahili antiquities and surrounded by green shady gardens. The variety of accommodation options mean Kinondo Kwetu caters well to couples, honeymooners and families and there are plenty of areas to relax in peace and quiet.

In addition to sunbathing on the beach and swimming in the Indian Ocean, the resort offers an impressive selection of activities ranging from snorkelling to deep-sea fishing, horse riding and yoga. There is one very large and one smaller outdoor pool, a tennis court and also an exercise area. Massage and beauty treatments are offered and there is also a wood-fired sauna.
