Kenya is one of Africa’s most stunning countries, where visitors from all over the world get to experience what makes the continent so magical.

From the mountains to beaches, here are some of the best hotels to say during your trip to Kenya:

Waterlovers Beach Resort

Located on Diani Beach, Waterlovers Beach Resort is not only a great place to relax, but it’s perfect for nature lovers.

Bordered by rainforests and the Indian Ocean, a stay here means that you will have amazing ocean views and the chance to see the rare Colobus monkeys.

Nay Palad Bird Nest

Nay Palad Bird Nest is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

Its location in the Laikipia plains, one of Kenya’s prime safari locations, only adds to your experience.  


You will spend your time amid treetops with views of the plains and surrounded by the sounds of nature.

Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor is part of the award-winning and black-owned “Safari Collection.”

Located in the suburbs of Nairobi, Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel spread across 12 acres of private land.

Of course, the magic of this accommodation is clearly stated in its name, where the resort’s herd of Rothschild’s giraffes will peek in your room from time-to-time. 

While beautiful, keep in mind that sleeping here comes with a hefty price tag due to the experience and limited availability.

The Reef Hotel

Located on Nyali Beach in Mombasa, North Coast, the Reef Hotel offers guests different views to choose from.  

Want a tropical garden as your backdrop?  The “garden view room” is what you’re looking for.

How about the Indian Ocean instead?  Your go-to, of course, would be the “sea view room.”

Bahari Beach Hotel

Another gem along Nyali Beach that’s absolutely breathtaking is Bahari Beach Hotel.

The hotel offers the best of both worlds as it’s surrounded by beautiful and tropical gardens with an amazing backdrop of the ocean.
