Home to Ida and Filip Andersson, a Swedish family related to the famed Baron Blixen, Kinondo Kwetu is often described as a 'home away from home' - a paradise for those wanting a more personal experience on the Kenyan coast.

Located on a tranquil private beach south of Diani, distanced from residential neighbours by rocky cliffs and endless beach, Kinondo Kwetu is classified as a 'Kaya' area (protected by the National Museum) due to its surrounding holy forests and sacred land.

With various forms of accommodation, all surrounded by green shady gardens and just a few steps from the white sandy beach, Kinondo Kwetu can cater for up to 38 people.

In addition to relaxing in the sun and swimming in the Indian Ocean, Kinondo Kwetu offers an impressive selection of exciting activities ranging from watersports such as Kite Surfing, deep sea fishing and Scuba Diving, to land activities such as Game Drives in the nearby Shimba Hills, Horse Riding and Yoga weeks.

Overview



Welcome to Kinondo Kwetu - The only hotel on a stretch of private white beach on Galu beach.

This is where we live. It is our home on the Indian Ocean. And it will be yours, too, for as many days as you choose. That is why we call it A Home Away From Home. Kinondo Kwetu is a small, all-inclusive luxury resort owned and operated by us, a Swedish family. But beyond the accommodations, food, and amenities you would expect, it also offers another kind of luxury. We are talking about the luxury of peace and quiet. Of freedom and rest. No pumping music at the pools. No noise from crowds at the bar. No jostling for space on the beach. No roaming trinket sellers. Kinondo Kwetu is a home, not an entertainment centre. We think you will love it as much as we do.

Kinondo Kwetu is situated on the south coast of Kenya, 1 hours ride south from Mombasa, on the beach of the Indian Ocean. With room for no more than 38 guests, you will always find your own private spot at Kinondo Kwetu, which makes it a very special hideaway for honeymooners. It is also the perfect place to gather family or friends for a private celebration or wedding. With two kitchens in separate buildings, the place can easily be divided into two, making it possible for companies of 10-20 or 30-40 to stay for themselves. It is also the ideal spot for corporate retreats.
