The perfect place to relax and rejuvenate by the Indian Ocean, this serene property combines perfectly with an exciting safari. Boasting its own private beach, the chic, charming house is situated in Msambweni itself, a small fishing town and constituency in southeastern Kenya. The name hails from ‘msambwe’, a hardy and wild fruit tree indigenous to the area.

Trained by a celebrity Belgian chef, no less, the kitchen staff can serve seafood, Swahili, Belgian or French cuisine.

Days can be spent lounging in the beach or pool, recharging and snoozing. Alternatively, go kayaking in mangroves, take boat trips looking for whale sharks, snorkel in Kisite Marine Park or spend the day sport-fishing. On the property itself, everything from ping-pong and petanque to badminton, body-surfing and beach soccer is available for free.

Rooms in the main house share a 14-metre infinity pool; three private villas each have their own pool and gardens.
