This is a beautiful traditionally built guesthouse only 100m from the shores of Watamu National Marine Park on the North Coast of Kenya. Rooms are let singularly, or for larger parties, book all six and have this beautiful property to yourselves, and a newly furnished self-contained apartment offering more privacy and allows guests to use all amenities.
This is the ideal location for those who don’t prefer the restrictions imposed by larger hotels. For those looking for adventure, this hotel offers overnight stays at its beautiful working farm in the bush at Msoloni. Experience one, two or more nights in a traditional Giriama 'shamba' for an experience to remember!
The facility features stilted or local mud and thatch accommodation, crystal water drawn from a pristine well and its meals cooked on wood fire. A clear view of the night sky with a hurricane lamp is what you’ll experience here. The hotel’s aim is to provide an African experience for all guests to enjoy!
The Giriama Residence offers four double bedrooms and two family rooms, all en-suite, with showers, built in the traditional white Coastal style. These airy rooms remain pleasantly cool even in the heat of the sub Saharan day.
All rooms are cleaned daily with fresh bed linen and towels alternate days. Washing lines are provided for drying of beach towels and swimwear or for a small tip your Room Steward will be willing to wash and iron larger items for you.
The residence is fully staffed with an excellent cook and a housekeeper. A separate kitchen can be used for self-catering but a cook is provided for you to prepare meals. Eat your meals under the stars and relax with a drink from the licensed bar on the garden TV lounge veranda with a large selection of DVDs, CDs, books, games etc. This is the perfect place to chill out and catch the breeze drifting in from the Indian Ocean.
