Overal, we had the most wonderul week in Ukunda, at the Sultansakahaus. Not only is the house a gem, but the staff whom we prefer to describe as now 'friends' made our stay very special. The combination of their care, attention and not to mention the fantastic chef Musa, who could compete with any of the big names - just made our week complete. We did a lot within the community and met many of the locals. The real Africa (we visited the beach for a couple of hours one day only). If anything, we were too busy to even enjoy the pool (would do more the next time for sure).
I highly recommend this property. You feel welcomed & safe. There were just 2 of us, and it would be even much more fun with a family or another couple at least. Oodles of space and plenty to do in Kenya for the more adventurous as we were, or equally ideal for a family who perhaps does want to be pampered, and not move about too much by enjoying the house, the pool and whole experience.
If you go to Africa, you will know what to expect. Use the locals and take in some education during your stay. Best way. We have surely left our hearts in Ukunda and I would love to return one day. It was a great week to reignite my love of Africa and the amazing African people. Thank you Katerina and Sam for allowing us to share your home and just a huge hug to Musa, Rose, Naomi, Jen, Said, Alex & King. You are all beautiful people. From Carole & Vincenzo, Milan.
We had a lovely week's stay in Gino's flat, it is nicely decorated and the pool works especially well for kids as it has a big shallow bit. The flat is adjacent to the hotel, but to use their pools / wifi etc you need to pay like any other outside guest. It is quite a bit out of town, so sometimes it was a bit lengthy to try and find a taxi to go somewhere, but staff was always helpful. Contact with Gino was prompt, and a maid came every day to rough clean although we never knew when as it varied day to day, she did an ok job. Sheets and towels were changed regularly which was nice.
