Kinondo Kwetu




Kinondo Kwetu is a small, all-inclusive luxury resort owned and operated by a Swedish family. But beyond the accommodation, the food, and the amenities you would naturally expect, it also offers another kind of luxury. We are talking about the luxury of peace and quiet, of freedom and rest. Kinondo Kwetu is a comfortable home, not a busy resort.

Home to Ida and Filip Andersson and their 3 children, a Swedish family related to the famed Baron Blixen,Kinondo Kwetu is often described as a ‘home away from home’ - a paradise for those wanting a more personal experience on the Kenyan coast. Located on a tranquil private beach on a 16 acre plot south of Diani Beach, distanced from residential neighbours by rocky cliffs and endless beach, Kinondo Kwetu is classified as a ‘Kaya’area (protected by the National Museum) due to its surrounding holy forests and sacred land.

Private Strecth of Beach by the Indian Ocean

Kinondo Kwetu is situated at the far end of the remote Galu Beach, south of Diani beach. The nearest hotel is 2 km away and therefore the beach is very private. Lay down on a sun bed and admire the vast ocean or grab one of our foldable beach chairs and sit with your feet in the incoming tide.

Kinondo Kwetu’s dhow and outriggers are out on the water, waiting to take you sailing. There are plenty of other water based activities: snorkeling, kayaking, island picnics, fishing and more. In the grounds there are two pools, one of them with sufficient depth to train for the PADI diving certificate; there are horses for those who ride and a tennis court.
