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. There is no intrusive  music at the pools. No noise from large crowds at the bar. No jostling for space on the beach. No roaming trinket sellers. Kinondo Kwetu is a comfortable  home, not a busy resort.

It is also the perfect place to bring family or friends for a private celebration or wedding. With two kitchens in separate buildings, the place can easily be divided into two, making it possible for groups  to stay without difficulty.

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.
