Two Superior rooms (Honeymoon Suite); one suite sits alone on the northern side of the house and is reached by its own private spiral staircase. It is a spacious room with an impressive four poster bed offering a superb view of the pool, garden, beach and sea beyond. A walk through cupboard leads to an en-suite bathroom with a double shower.

The second suite on the first floor has a wonderful central view of the pool, garden, beach and sea. The elegant four poster bed offers comfort and relaxation. Walk through the curtained arch to a roomy bathroom with shower, bath and same spectacular view.

This hotel is only one hour's drive from Mombasa’s Moi International Airport and 10 minutes from the Ukunda Airstrip. It offers a romantic venue for intimate celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and special occasions tailor-made to make the meaningful moments of your life the most exquisite souvenirs.

Flamboyant has 10 en-suite bedrooms: two superior and eight standard rooms. Rent a room individually or take over the entire house for any occasion; be it wedding parties, incentive groups or retreats. The house overlooks a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by a tropical garden right on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Shady corners offer a haven from the sun and a spacious patio provides an attractive lounging environment. The open and airy living space with a courtyard and bar adjoin the alfresco dining and barbecue area. There is a picturesque gazebo by the beach providing the perfect romantic setting for those wanting something more intimate.

Complete indulgence massage and beauty therapy can be organised in Flamboyant with the hotel’s partnered masseuse and beauticians. Sports enthusiasts can use the house squash court; please bring your own rackets and clear soled shoes.

The hotel’s cuisine is inspired by the Swahili coastal specialities using fresh produce and seafood fresh from the sea. International, traditional, vegetarian and special diets are all catered for.

Flamboyant has its own chef and caters for BB, HB and all inclusive. Of course, alternatively people can dine at the beach bar or the cave but this is not included in Flamboyant’s meal plan.

The cuisine is seafood-oriented, highlighting Swahili coastal culinary specialities. International, traditional and special diets are all catered for to suit all tastes and delicate palates, prepared by the hotel’s executive chef.

You decide to dine by the swimming pool, in the fragrant garden or in the intimate Beach Gazebo for a candlelit dinner.

We were frustrated with the hotel. Although it does have advantages for being at the beach, and close to a popular bar and restaurant, it did not meet our expectations by far. The place has a charmless and aged décor, which does not relate to modern concept of “boutique hotel”, as it is called. The advertised “ocean view” is limited as the sea is far beyond the garden and its trees, and only small strip can be seen. The modest room has furniture from the 70’s, and armchairs with white stained covers. The only technological “sophistications” are an old and noisy air conditioner, an old minibar and a tea kettle. There is no TV set, telephone, iPod deck, hair dryer, and Internet barely works. Sometimes you must seat on the window sill to capture some signal. The bed has a foam mattress, and its linen is not changed on a daily basis. The bathroom is fairly spacious, but charmless like the rest. Instead of mirrors in front of the sinks there are windows with a nice garden view. The mirrors are placed on the sides, and shaving is not so practical. There’s an uninviting bathtub and at its end. Toiletry is limited to small hand soaps, and I recommend you take your own. Face towels were available the first day. Then they were not replaced. The shower water sometimes has a strong smell. Service in general was kind, but could still be trained to achieve higher standards. The staff is sometimes reactive, and guests must go after information, room and pool services. One day I was “invited” to come to the table for lunch with a loud “HEY” that could be heard across the restaurant. Breakfast is nice, but the table service does not correspond to the well set tables in the pictures. I could go on point out more issues, but the text has become long. The fact is that the cost/benefit ratio of the hotel is not good, and I would rather look for other high-end choices which offer better services for the same price."

We thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were warm and welcoming and flexible with meal times and choices. Tracy is fantastic and willing to help with requests. Food was amazing. Location is perfect - close access to Forty Thieves and Ali Barbour's Cave means you're not lacking in nightlife and fine dining. Looking forward to going again later this year.
