About Kinondo Kwetu
Kinondo Kwetu can host up to 38 guests and you will always find your own private spot, which makes it a very special hideaway for honeymooners and couples alike. Every room and cottage has its own personalized character, as it is furnished and decorated with Swahili culture handicraft and antiquities.
Rooms are equipped with king size beds, fans and mosquito nets. There are plenty of quiet, beautiful spots where you can retire to spend time with yourself or in company, in the library or in one of the living rooms. Or outside, in one of the water towers, where you can watch the sun set over the mountains, on a cliff by the sea or in any of the secluded spots you find in the area.
Although Kinondo Kwetu is the ideal place for simply doing nothing at all, it offers exciting possibilities for all adventurers big and small. Some activities are better in some seasons, depending on winds and tides. The reefs along Galu Beach boast a generous variety of marine life. One can see a range of exotic species - from angel fish and parrot fish to dolphins, turtles, and even whale sharks. (Whale shark season is from October to March) Not only this but deep sea fishing is also available with catches such as Tuna, Wahoo, Barracuda and Marlin.
Kinondo Kwetu owes much of its charm to its surrounding community and the Kinondo village, from where many among the staff are recruited. To have a respectful interaction with the community is of great importance. That is why Kinondo Kwetu have established the Kinondo Kwetu Trust fund, whose main purposes are to provide health care to the villagers and to support the education of children.
