I live in nearby Kilifi and took some friends from England there in 2012 simply because I had heard so much about it.Well.... to be truthful we were all very disappointed.For starters it's not easy to get to unless you have a Car. You turn off the Mombasa/Malindi Highway and drive for about half a Mile until you reach security... More

Dear Avee H, I am full of intrigue as to why you decided in mid-April 2017 to publish a review going back to your visit during Christmas 2012! In case my mathematics deceives me that was something like 64 months ago! During that period a number of things have happened. In the 30 months I have been at Vipingo Ridge... More

Sitting outside on the terrace in the afternoon is a nightmare. Too hot. We asked one waiter to switch on the big fan outside but she bluntly told us that it was too noisy and most guys will take offense. All the guys were white. We decided to move to a more breezy spot. After 10 minutes a white elderly... More

The buffet at Clubhouse is pathetic & completely tasteless. Its blend & there is much need for a new chef who has skill, experience & passion for cooking. The staff there have a dont care attitude & perhaps the focus of Vipingo Ridge is on golfing & golfers & not other avenues or products they offer. They need to revamp... More

Dear Azme, You came in on Sunday and asked for the a la carte menu and the staff explained the a la carte menu is not available on Sunday until until 4:00pm as we offer a buffet lunch.

Dear Terry, Thank you for this review. We are sorry the tower fans were not helpful during this rather hot, humid and still period.

Visited supporting partner in an event. Most tables were 'reserved' no place to sit, no signage on the buffet for vegetarian or non pork eating persons and the servers were not sure. Really nothing that toddlers could eat on the buffet. They ran out of everything by 4pm. No water, no soda, no running water in the bathrooms, no icecream.... More

Lovely lot. Fabulous views that stretch for miles! The furniture needs some attention/cleaning. The craft fair had a diverse set of vendors tending to nearly every need.

The view and the "wow" factor of the club house is a must see. However, there is a real lack of effort on the food front. it was extremely poor.

The food was very good but the ambience and view are the real draw. I enjoyed it and would go again plus recommend the place but wouldn't eat there every day. Too expensive.

Beach bar looking to rival the best French beach bars. Welcoming owners and wonderful white sand and relaxed atmosphere. Delicious food and a great way to enjoy an afternoon. It deserves to succeed.
