Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, on the edge of the sacred Kaya Kinondo forest, Kinondo Poa is a tranquil haven away from mass tourism and its dynamics. Just 100 m off the crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches of Kenya’s Indian Ocean coastline four traditionally makuti (palm leaves) thatched chalets provide eight spacious air conditioned rooms with en-suite bathrooms and private patios.

Facilities include a swimming pool, a pool bar, a beach chillout area, a spa, coffee lounge and an in house diving center . Free WiFi internet access is available all over the compound and within the rooms.

Kinondo Poa’s intimate ambiance makes it the perfect getaway for couples, family groups or honeymooners but also prvides privacy required for corporate team building events or meetings.

Relax and unwind, recharge your batteries, in this oasis of peace and tranquility while getting spoiled by the best service and hospitality Africa can offer.

Where we are

Kinondo Poa is located 12 km south of Diani along the quiet Galu Beach. The transfer from Mombasa International Airport takes about 90 minutes, from Ukunda airstrip about 15.

Within 20 minutes Diani, the vibrant tourist center of Kenya’s South Coast can be reached. Apart from leisure facilities like restaurants, bars, discotheques or a golf course there are supermarkets, hospitals, dentists and ATMs available.


The rooms, all of them with their own veranda facing the pool, though simple and functional are cozy and spacious, having 25 m². Furniture consists of a comfortable queen bed, protected by a full size mosquito net, bed side tables, arm chairs and a dressing mirror and table with chair. A water dispenser for chilled or hot water, a mini fridge and tea and coffee making facilities are also available. Some of the rooms also have a big Swahili Couch to chill out on or to be used as an additional bed.

The en-suite bathroom is equipped with toilet, hot water shower and sink with mirror. The spacious walk in drawers offer a lot of space for clothes, shoes, bags and suitcases. The shelves are open as closed cabinets in tropical areas often result in mould.

Each room is equipped with a super silent air conditioner.
