Off the beaten track, north of Malindi, then a boat ride on the Tana River, then to a dock, up many stairs to the top of a sand dune and the Lodge. It is a stunning place on the confluence of the sea and the river. The lodge is beautiful and the rooms perfectly decorated.

Our room was on top of a sand dune and we had beautiful and unspoilt views of the beach on one side and the tana delta on the other. The staff are excellent, and a special thank you to Kazungu who made us feel so welcome. The...

We went to Delta Dunes to enjoy a very relaxing, silent and wonderful holiday. The rooms are completely open with no walls. The food was superb and the service was one of the best thatwe have enjoyed in Kenya. It has a lot of steps because the hotel is located on the top of the dune. The beach is super...

Stayed here for 4 nights in December 2014. Had a fabulous time and all the management and staff are so warm and welcoming. It's a complete different stay hidden away from reality. The chef made a great effort and gave yummy food for us vegetarians.

We spent Two nights in this paradise with other families over New Years Eve. What a fantastic spot, put together simply, elegantly and very comfortably. The staff were friendly and attentive, but not too familiar. Service was excellent. Lots to do, and a perfect match of Beach and Bush. We will definitely go back - well done!
