and glorious ambiance.

little lights - fishing boats - on the dark horizon where the night
sky meets the ocean. Suddenly your sense of smell kicks in and
the balmy ocean breeze washes over you with its delicious salty
promise. Each evening reveals a different pace, always in place, always
enjoyable. Experience the pulse-quickening energy of the songs
and traditional dances of the Maasai. The intricate vocal rhythm
of their music is mesmerising and almost as astounding as their
uncanny jumping abilities.
Live bands provide excellent entertainment and a great opportunity
to really get a feel for your new-found Kenyan rhythm.
The meals are sumptuous buffets, with an irresistible spread of
tantalising dishes to suite every taste. Lingering over a well-prepared
meal in the dining area on the veranda, recalling the activities
and sights of the day… this is the time and space where
memories are made…
The stunning freeform swimming pool commands your attention and beckons you in
to enjoy the sparkling turquoise blue waters as they meet the horizon and merge
with the azure hues of the Indian Ocean beyond.
Walking onto the soft white sand of Mnarani’s beach, you feel exhilarated
as you take in the sights – Arabic dhows sail gently by with the sea
breeze whispering in their sails, the warm ocean waters invite you
in and local fisherman tend to their lines in the colourful creek below the
tropical green cliffs of Kilifi.
Comfort and uncluttered,
simple style makes for excellent accommodation and the sweetest dreams.
The rooms are delightful and moving into this deliciously cool space
and the romance of soft, white mosquito netting, reaffirms your pleasure
at being here. The immaculately smooth and gleaming hardwood floors
beckon bare feet and the simplicity and comforts of the spacious en
suite bathroom reiterates your feeling of well-being.
Daylight heralds an array of new
delights as you step out onto your private terrace and absorb the glorious
vistas of ocean, sky and exotic tropical green. Perfect blues, perfect
greens. Giant Frangipani trees, adorned with exquisite white and pink-edged
flowers, perfume the air with their, soft sweet scent as you wonder
the paths through the landscaped gardens and gain a perspective of Mnarani’s
magnificent surroundings and breathtaking views. The gardens are inviting
and beautifully maintained. Magnificent old trees add their own strength
and beauty and the resident troop of monkeys will delight you with
their circus antics and expressive faces.
