Built in Arab style with Swahili furniture, boasting the most spectacular views on the coast, Fumbeni is located on the North side of Kilifi Creek. The infinity pool overlooks the creek and if you are not content relaxing here looking at the tide come in and out then there are plenty of activities in the surrounding area to keep you busy! Bofa beach, watersports and a sailing center, unmissable sunset dhow cruises and much much more will keep even the most hyperactive entertained!

We had a wonderful time here. The view is transcendent, changing through the day. Pictures don't do it justice. The house itself is somewhat reminiscent of a melting ice cream cake (from the outside, anyhow ☺️) but lovely in it's on way, and really the astounding view of the bay…
