KINASI LODGE, Chole BaY
We have created an unique resort at Kinasi, with furniture, fabrics, designs and styles that borrow from all the countries of the Indian Ocean, the “empires of the monsoon”. We call this the Shjrazi Style.... Kinasi is very personal and has the feel and character of a private home, which is exactly what we intend for our guests.
Kinasi is located in the heart of the Mafia Island Marine Park. On our doorstep there are many attractions such as historical ruins, village excursions, road safaris to remote beaches and plantations on the island, boat excursions, wind-surfing, kayaking, scuba diving and snorkelling.
Kinasi has the only swimming pole and dedicated spa in Mafia with professional Thai therapists and also offers manicure, pedicure and hair treatments.
Is there a best time to visit and if so why ?
Not during April-May due to main/long rainy season; the best is the September-March months (calm periods)
