Mombasa’s South Coast has a good number of highly rated hotels and resorts, so even though it is a little farther from the city and access is typically via ferry, the trip will definitely be worth it. Check out these excellent hotels located in the South Coast.
Sheshe Baharini Beach Hotel
If you are looking for an exclusive and private boutique hotel, Sheshe Baharini Beach Hotel is exactly where you should go. With a gorgeous beach front, Portuguese and Swahili architecture, the hotel has been described as romantic and peaceful.
Sheshe Baharini has 30 guest rooms, much fewer than the average beach hotel, which means less crowds and more personalized service from staff at the hotel.
Enjoy the swimming pool, rooftop cocktail lounge, bars and restaurants that are part of the hotel, and have a laugh watching the Vervet monkeys and hedgehogs that occasionally grace Sheshe Baharini’s grounds.
It is an intimate kind of hotel, which is perfect for a wedding or honeymoon, but it also has plenty to offer families that simply need to unwind.
