Msambweni Beach House

Msambweni Beach House

On Kenya’s south coast lies a serene and unspoiled luxury destination. Surrounded by 28 acres of natural land and 700 feet of private beach on four miles of pristine coastline, Msambweni Beach House gives guests the unique sense of becoming one with nature.

Msambweni boasts uncompromising standards of elegance and service. The main house offers an eighty-foot infinity pool. A winding jetty ends in a picturesque spot overlooking the Indian Ocean and is the perfect spot for sundowners or pre-dinner cocktails. The resort’s fine cuisine (carefully prepared by a staff that was thoroughly trained by a celebrity Belgian chef) has an international flair. Swahili dishes, Belgian and French cuisine, and, of course, fresh, local seafood provide the basis for a delightful dining experience.

The main house accommodations feature three spacious rooms with private verandas and en-suite bathrooms. High ceilings, airy feel, and romantically draped beds add to the ambiance of rooms in the main house. Three private Lamu villas face the Indian Ocean and provide dramatic views from their private verandas and swimming pools. Each villa features two bedrooms, luxurious furnishings, and en-suite bathrooms with jacuzzi.

Opportunities to experience wildlife in its natural surroundings abound at Msambweni. At nearby Shimba Hills, enjoy a private picnic lunch while viewing sable antelope and elephant. One of the best spots in the world for snorkeling and scuba diving, Kisite Marine Park is a special destination just waiting to be explored. Marine life flourishes, featuring trigger fish, moray eels, angelfish, butterfly fish, groupers, parrotfish, wrasses, scorpionfish, pufferfish, damselfish, rays, snappers, green sea turtles, hawksbill turtles, and dolphins. Humpback whales and whale sharks are seasonal to the area.

Guests can also enjoy visiting local villages, sailing on local fishing boats, mountain biking, playing the 18-hole golf course (about 35 minutes away), and deep sea fishing. Daily relaxation massages, pedicures, and manicures are also available.
