    The hotel was right by house of wonders and Malindi Mosque. The private beach was close to the venue.

    Great

    Charmed by the sea. The view of the sea with sailboats. Although its a large hotel, it does not seem chunky (like the neighboring Hyatt). Had luck with the room, bright and in the upper floor. Great view during lunch in the restaurant.
