Capture a few moments. Management and stuff a mean team. Lovely place. Beautiful place and hospitality. Enjoy the views and food as well as the Michael Jackson and Africa nights. Clean pools and masai all over as security. Will go again

The service and facilities are great at this welcoming hotel. The kids loved the pool and we had great excursions including snorkelling at Npenda. Only downside is the sea is either too high or too low to make the most of the beach which is more accessible from other parts of the island.

We stayed in Samaki Lodge for ten nights in January 2013. Run by Italian owner, this inexpensive small hotel surrounded by nice garden has a gorgeous white-sand beach, nice pool area, very helpful staff and security provided by Masai warriors. Not many tourists there. A fish village and locals fish from their dhows just offshore. Our room was nice and...
