“The resident band and the beach”
The resident band is playing very good, also they have so many kinds of music and good sound, and have an amazing guitarist , and the beach is very good .Also the hotel is like a paradise , the service is good but we need the show everyday if it possible because only two shows a week it’s not enough, we are satisfied!

“Good to relax after a safari on the mainland.”
Beautiful view, nicer beaches are further North, but result in a longer drive if you want to visit other locales on the island. Staff are friendly and attentive. We disliked having buffet meals all of the time, there is one sit-down restaurant on the property that provided a wonderful a la carte lunch.

“Luxurious opulence in serene surroundings”
Overall fantastic stay! Breakfast buffet is outstanding and the Dinner exquisite. Very luxurious but no hair conditioner in the rooms! Beautiful tranquil setting – a long way from town though. If you want to just eat, drink & relax – this is the place to go.

We understand the need for parents to have a fun-filled holiday with their kids, as well as a bit of adult time! For children aged between 3 and 13 years, we offer a professionally run children’s club with weekly themed programmes and a range of indoor and outdoor activities. As well as arts, crafts and sports, the children also enjoy cultural experiences and even an introduction to the Swahili language. Most of our multi-lingual staff have worked as kindergarten teachers and have undergone first aid training. Nutritional kids’ meals are also offered at the Toto Club and we also provide ‘ayah’ or babysitter services at an additional charge.


The Resort operates two boutiques offering a wide range of East African crafts, books, postcards, souvenirs and gifts as well as clothing, jewellery and accessories. Don’t worry if you forgot to pack something, the boutique also stocks beachwear, sun-creams, sunglasses and a host of general supplies to ensure everything you need is on hand.
