Tijara Beach Hotel - Diani Beach, Kenya

Diani Beach - South Coast of Mombasa, Kenya

Tijara Beach Hotel is an exclusive retreat set on a seaside bluff in 5 acres of colourful gardens overlooking the Indian Ocean. At the foot of the cliffs is a private beach. A magnificent fresh water pool and ‘al fresco' dining area complete this enchanting resort. Owned and managed by Ian & Larissa Manson Hart, this secret hideaway provides an upmarket service whose intimate and personal attention gives everyone the feeling of being at home.

Kenya coast
Kenya's south coast, one of her most popular beach holiday destinations, offers clear blue sea, marine parks, excellent water sports, coral reefs, monsoon winds, numerous hotels and beach resorts, family vacations, sun n sand, cultural and beach travel and more. Close to Mombasa, it is also within easy reach of Malindi, Lamu, Diani and many other popular Kenya safari resort hotels.

Location and seasons
Location: 6 km. South of Mombasa Island in Pungu - Kenya.

How to get there:
By road:
Approximately 45 minutes driving time from Moi International Airport
Approximately 30 minutes driving time from Ukunda Airstrip

Kenya's stunning coastline (485 km from Nairobi) runs 700 km between the Tanzanian and Somali borders and is renowned for its silken white sandy beaches, coconut palms, sheltered lagoons, pellucid blue waters, remote islands, uncharted mangrove swamps and mysterious Arab and Swahili ruins, many of which date back to the 8th Century AD. An idyllic climate cooled by the monsoon, the Swahili coast offers a daily average of 8 hours of sunshine, and the hot steamy climate is tempered by the monsoon winds: the south-easterly Kusi, which blows from April to October; and the north-easterly Kaskazi which blows from November to March.

The background
Kenya's pristine and well-developed coral reef extends virtually without break from Shimoni in the south to Malindi in the north, some 230 Kms in total. The reef is broken only in a few places by river mouths and creeks; and of these the deepest and most sheltered safe channels through the reef are those that lie on either side of Mombasa Island.

Accommodation: Only four spacious luxury cottages, each sited on its own cliff head with large open decks offer breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean. Insect proof king size beds with exclusively handcrafted Swahili furniture reflect the warmth and character of the local architecture.
