Our family of 4 had a wonderful 3 night stay. The rooms were beautiful, beds comfortable, and the air con worked well. Turn down service to spruce up the rooms and set up the mosquito netting is a nice touch. The pavilion has impressive architectural presence which is brilliant planning for covering the pool (so its always a cool temperature), covering 2 the dining areas and the 2 bars. There were always enough lounge chairs covered in comfortable canvas with pillows and a few different options for shade. The staff was very friendly (although the bar staff seemed unenthusiastic most of the time). Bobo took us on a cool reef walk, but I’d recommend only fit people and children who are >9 participate. There are way too many spikey sea urchins, even with the sturdy fishing boots Kena supplies, if you stumble and fall on an urchin or rough coral, it would be a bad scene. The food was pretty good. Lots of selections for meat eaters. Only 1 or two options for vegetarians in the buffet. With some Indian influence on the menus, I’d recommend putting full Indian dishes into the rotation. Samosas, tiki masala, paneer dishes and even desserts. The flan and passion fruit mousse were the best dishes. My husband liked the Swahili dishes.
I’d also recommend that they place some hammocks around the property and add a ping pong table And fussball in the game room. My kids used the pool table and the dart board, more options would be nice. We enjoyed meeting the Maasai and picking out gifts
