Sheshe Baharini beach hotel is a small, intimate facility with a focus on luxury and 5-star service located on Kenya’s South Coast and based on Tiwi Beach, widely acknowledged to be one of the finest beaches in Kenya.
Sheshe Baharini means “a beautiful place by the sea”. Known locally as the “Castle” because of its striking architecture, the original building was set amongst acres of lush tropical gardens, lapped by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
The hotel is only a short drive away from Mombasa Island's Moi International Airport and only 20 minutes away from the tourist hotspot of Diani beach with its vibrant nightlife and sport and leisure facilities. It has powdery white sands washed by the warm, tropical waters of the Indian Ocean and fringed by palm trees, and is unspoiled and secluded soft sandy beach perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
Accommodation at Sheshe consists of 30 ensuite rooms in blocks of three, all with private verandas facing the stunning tropical gardens or the sea.
There is an emphasis on relaxed comfort and luxury and all the rooms are elegantly appointed with individual colour schemes, hand carved hardwood furniture, walk in showers, ceiling fans, air conditioning, mosquito nets and in house phones. The rooms also feature original paintings by local artists. The seafront and superior seafront suites are a stone’s throw away from the beach and offer magnificent views of the ocean.
The hotel's food is prepared in house by skilled chefs using the freshest ingredients, locally sourced, where possible.
You will often see local fishermen bringing their daily catches to the kitchen doors in the morning for you to enjoy for dinner and there are few experiences more romantic than sitting in the restaurant watching the moon rise out of the sea and hearing the breeze whispering through the palm trees as you indulge in fine wine and delicious, freshly caught seafood.
