The Ocean Spa Lodge is a stunning boutique hideaway set on a pristine beach on Kenya’s South Coast – a real barefoot luxury experience. Opened in 2015, the property takes full advantage of the sloping site to stagger the height of different parts of the lodge and different suites so that views open up all around the property. It boasts a deserted beachfront, away from the crowds, a 1000 sqm infinity pool, beautiful thatched and air-conditioned suites and a pioneering health and wellness retreat. Service at the lodge reflects a very high attention to detail, and guests love the fresh and creative cuisine. There are no TVs in the rooms, but there’s a great in-house cinema/ TV lounge underneath the restaurant with DSTV, which tends to get used for big sporting events. But it doesn’t interfere with other guest enjoying other activities or simply chilling out at the lodge.
The Ocean Spa Lodge will appeal to couples, families, groups and friends alike. Each of the suites has an ocean view, private entrance, king size bed with mosquito net, large double-basin bathroom with walk-in shower, separate living area, outdoor veranda or portico, and a spacious walk-in wardrobe. Family Suites also have a second bedroom and separate bathroom. Most of the furniture at the lodge is hand-crafted by the local artisans. All paintings and art pieces are done by African artists.
The Coral Villa has 4 magnificent suites (2 Double Suites and 2 Triple Suites, for a maximum occupancy of 10 guests). It can be booked as a whole villa for a group of friends or families and a booking for a minimum of 6 guests (paying full price) will ensure exclusivity for the whole villa.
Guests at The Ocean Spa Lodge can participate in a wide range of diverse, on and off-site activities, appealing to all tastes and ages. Complimentary activities include snorkelling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, guided walks to Msambweni village, bowls & volleyball. Chargeable activities include trips with local fishermen, mangrove river excursions, a dhow experience in Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Park (guided snorkelling and scuba diving), kite-surfing, windsurfing and deep sea fishing.
The Spa facilities include treatment rooms, a Yoga & Fitness Studio and the Water Wellness Circuit which incorporates Rain Forest Emotional Showers, Hydro-Massage Pool and Dr Kneipp Corridors Circuit, the very first of its kind in East Africa. The Spa is operated in collaboration with Des Iles Centro Benessere Stresa at the five-star deluxe Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees & Spa, Stresa, Italy.
