This coral-colored mansion is one of Kenya’s swankiest guest houses, with just eight rooms to maintain a feeling of exclusivity. The décor complements this, both in the main house and in any of the luxury tents. There’s a charming bar and you can have the staff set up dinner anywhere you like.
Mombasa is an island that touts African, Middle Eastern and Asian influences, with mosques alongside churches on the streets. The Old Town and Fort Jesus are the main sightseeing spots in the city, while more upmarket, quieter Diani Beach attracts local sun worshipers and has a wealth of restaurants and bars.
