Kiwayu, is a family owned Lodge, and was established in 1973 by Alfredo and Lisa Pelizzoli. It is situated in a sheltered bay, on the edge of the Indian Ocean in the Kiunga Marine Reserve. The perfect place to dissappear into and restore your soul. Miles of deserted beaches with soft white sand and the soothing sound of waves will soon awaken the senses and lead you back to nature’s eternal rhythms.
Come with your family or partner and experience this unique place, whether its for enjoying our extensive selection of watersports or just relaxing and switching off from the outside world.
Your banda (cottage) is one of 18 spread along one kilometer of the sandy shoreline, built with great imagination, in the local Swahili tradition of palm thatch and woven matting floors. The only sound you will hear is the lapping of the sea, the wind in the palms and bird song.
Your banda consists of a suite containing a spacious bedroom, a dressing area with twin basins, a shower with solarheated hot water and bidet. Electrical lights are 24 hours . Each private thatched veranda offers you panoramic views across the lagoon from the comfort of your Swahili bed or hammock… and only a stone’s throw from the water.
