We had the place to ourselves and they served 6 of us for lunch on two different days with friendly efficiency. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere.

The place has very unique archietecture. Service was excellent. They made breKfast as per our requirement. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. But poor wifi and we booked on the spot sooo may be some hick ups in rooms. Pool was amazing. Food was reallly tasty. Just that due to lack of tourism the place llooked very abandoned by evening..so it got a bit scarry at nights
Lovely beach reastaurants were walking distant so that was an added advantage

The White Elephant is a landmark destination in Malindi. The open air art galleries are lovely to pass through, the tropical garden settings are fabulous. The restaurant is as good as anything in all of town. Great place to stay, high recommended.

The rooms are big, with an interesting view, some in the garden.or sculpture or at the side the beach. The breakfast was a bit poor, for this hotel. The evening dinner ok, but nothing special.
It was not our hotel style.

Absolutely the best beach spot in Malindi. The small menu ensures everything on there is very good. The staff are brilliant but you spend most of the time enjoying the beautiful view. Prices are pretty decent considering how exclusive the hotel is.

Best dish: Indian Ocean risotto
