I just checked out of Kilili baharini resort in Malindi. We had booked to stay at this so called 5 star resort with a lot of hope..our hopes were shattered beyond hope of any repair. The hotel was empty with only a few rooms occupied yet there was no negotiation possible in terms of price to the point that when...

My first visit to kilili Baharini and to malindi . The perfect place to stay . Helpful staff , clean and well maintained rooms, absolutely spacious. Home away from home ! There was a problem with one of their water pumps, hence flow was limited. But apart, from that, the perfect place!

After looking around for an ideal place to commemorate our 10th Wedding Anniversary we settled on Kilili Baharini Spa & Resort in Malindi. We were not disappointed. From the warm welcome on arrival, to the friendly and attentive staff (Mary of the Sales Department/Front Office and waiter Steve especially stood out), to the lush grounds, the peace and quiet ....everything...

Relaxing and peaceful atmosphere, lots of green spots that surround the small villas. Private little outdoor refreshing during the sunset. Nice food and good service. Villas are big and comfortable, bed were a bit too hard for us but apart from this we had a great time.

Though i was visiting the area for work i felt really calm and well taken care of every morning i left the hotel and came back in the evening. The rooms are awesome and spacious creating a feeling of home. Love cooling at the beachfront and with great service and nice food i couldn't have had a much better time.

Spacious suites under traditional makuti roofing gives the accommodation experience an authentic african feel. Very welcoming and flexible reception. It was very quiet which made for a restful nite after a long day. Didn't get a chance to sample dinner but if the breakfast is anything to go by then for sure it must be a memorable experience. The decor...

The rooms were great although we stayed on the old side so the showers were alright not the best. The staff was very friendly and food was great. Swimming pools were a bit of a let down except for the one next to the spa. However the one next to the spa in not next to the beach.

Great friendly staff, clean large rooms, as works although loud, laundry service fair and good job, resort as a whole very clean, and good price for what your get. The lay out is hard to understand does not flow at all. To get to your room, pool, spa, and beach access I would recommend dropping bread crumbs.
