On Friday it was Irene's birthday, so we had blown balloons up, got her a nice card, I'd brought her chocolate and Verity made her a bracelet! Friday was a public holiday in Kenya as it was the end of Ramadan, so we didn't do ...

I knew that I would have to keep my cool but at the same time work a way around it. I kept repeating my situation to her but she didn't seem to care. I took my time and told the girls to go take a seat, I explained to her about getting back to Nairobi in order to connect flights. ...
... to eels, rays, a lion fish, lobster and more reef fish than you could shake a (driftwood) stick at. It was incredible getting to see the graceful turtles, who regarded us as nothing more than a mere annoyance, glide through the water. The second dive was at a location called Baobab, named after the iconic African tree of the same name. Here we managed to see puffer fish, rock fish, another ray, and three more sea turtles. All in all it was a great trip and ...
... public facility and just about as well cared for. Tired, uninspiring and promoted beyond its merits are all descriptions that spring to mind. It seems, nonetheless, to keep the undemanding masses, mainly locals, satisfied enough with bottomless drinks, virtually non-stop food and raucous, animated shows in the evening. To be fair, accepting that it is a venture pitched at a level of community demand and is designed to shake coins from ...
... we should have realised this as we left Hell's Gate to head back to Nairobi. We got in the Matatu taxi, expecting to be able to leave in about 20 minutes when the taxi filled up. Next thing we know the taxi heads off with just three of us in it. We tried asking the driver what was happening but we got a non-committal shrug of the shoulders in response. We then went on a bizarre trip around Naivasha town, speaking to mechanics, going past a shop and then ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Nyali Beach Hotel Mombasa
Just returned from Nyali Beach Hotel. Staff can't do enough for you, all very friendly. Very good food in all restaurants - Mvita grill excellent! All gardens kept in beautiful condition. Only complaint is air contitioning in bedrooms good but very noisy.
Tip- if you want to go on safari, book it with Richard or Steve on Beach (by free form pool, much cheaper than tour reps and excellent. Two day/one night to Tsavo East £85-100 includes all meals and accommodation (cash only - prefer GBP or Dollars). We stayed at Lion Hill Camp - Excellent accommodation!
Just spent 2 weeks at Nyali beach and it was wonderful! Located on the beach, and with beautiful well-kept grounds we had a fantastic time here! The main pool is huge, and the rooms (garden wing) were lovely - nice and cold to escape the heat!
LOVED EVERY MOMENT
After doing a weeks safari we had 8 nights at the Nyali Beach Hotel.
Everything about our stay was great. We was half board and enjoyed
the evening meals being served to your table made a real change
from buffets. It was very quite in the evenings.
Hopefully will be back again in 2006.
Two friends and I first stayed at Nyali beach 3 years ago when our booked hotel, Travellers Beach was burned down. We arrived in the middle of the night, shocked and without our belongings or any idea if we would be able to retrieve anything or continue our holiday. The Nyali Beach staff could not have done more to make us welcome and help us and re-opened their restaurant late at night to feed us. For these reasons and the fact we had a very enjoyable stay that time, we went back this year.
We have just returned from a holiday at Nyali Beach Hotel and were very disappointed in the drop in standards compared with our last visit five years ago. We booked it last minute and thought that as we had stayed in the hotel previously it would be the same. Whilst the staff were friendly and helpful the whole hotel seemed to be "caught in a time warp". The area around the large swimming pool was the exact same. It needs a complete overhaul with new sun loungers, umbrellas and chairs & tables at the bar. The rooms were not clean in comparison with our last visit and the room fridge had not been defrosted in months. After speaking to the staff we were told that the hotel is in receivership so many were unsure of the outcome. Hopefully it will be bought and money invested in re-developing the hotel as it is in beautiful grounds with great staff but they can only do so much.
I have just come back from a holiday in Kenya where I spent a week at the Nyali Beach Hotel (norht coast of Kenya, near Mombasa).
This place is paradise in every sense of the word. My mom and I flew to Mombasa and stayed at the Nyali Beach Hotel. It was my birthday, and the waitors and hotel staff made a procession carrying a wonderful cake, not to mention the live band that promptly began to play the "Happy Birthday" tune...all this for me! I was really touched.
Fabulous staff, beautiful surroundings
We stayed here for a week after a hectic schedule of safaris. What a lovely, relaxing ambience. Great rooms (a vervet monkey and its baby visited us on our balcony the first morning!), views of the Indian ocean, and two fabulous pools.
The highlight was when the staff discovered it was my son's 19th birthday. A beautiful iced cake with his name on, and a card signed by the staff appeared in our room that evening. My daughter's African braids, which took over five hours to do in the hotel hairdressers cost a mere £40. I'd love to go back. Kenya is fantastic!
Best beaches: Malindi, Lamu & Nyali
Nyali Beach hotel - decent pool; lots of waiters.
Malindi Coast & Lamu for best beaches & historical tours (areas temporarily controlled by slavery era Portugese militia, etc.). Watch out for deep sea poisonous jelly fish (pale or purplish in colour) that may wash up dead or alive on some of the more remote beaches! Buy Arab/Swahili sandals for decent prices in old Mombasa town.
