Pools & Garden

It’s hard to say what’s the best thing about the grounds that surround Qambani: the splendid pools for endless afternoons in the water, the exotic gardens with palms and sunbirds – planted by one of East Africa’s best gardeners – or the Indian Oceans’ craggy coral edge with seaviews splashed all the way along the front.

 A little stroll down through the grounds takes you to five wooden steps and the shore. From June to November, a miles-long white sand beach curls around the headland. From December to May, a smaller beach is no more than ten minutes walk away on the coral at low tide.

Livingroom

Room is an understatement: over forty wooden louvre doors open all sides to terraces and sunlight. At its heart, vast spreading sofas frame a giant timber table strewn with curiosities and bowls of shells.

Not at all party shy, this extensive room has a fully equipped bar at the eastern end, and there’s a serious sound system throughout. There’s also a different chair in which to read every chapter of your book.

Dining

You can feast and entertain all over this generous property. The master table can be elegantly laid in the timber dining room, with louvre doors that open three whole sides to the air and light.

 Outside in the grounds, you can go poolside with a barbecue, or lounge on the main terrace in the softness of the evening. Or peel off at dusk to the sundowner rooftop, right on the ocean’s edge.

Qambani Luxury Resort gym

Movies & Gym

Retreat from the tyranny of unlimited watersports to some indoor entertainment. A cosy room cum study is set back from the main sitting room, with a large HD TV with satellite channels, a selection of DVDs, and nice comfy sofas.

The next room off the courtyard is a small gym, with bicycle and rowing machines, ballet bar and mirrors. Like the rest of the house, it has a wi-fi connection and state of the art Sonos wireless sound system.

    “Stunning place” – January 2022

    This is an amazing place! Who wants tranquility, comfort, and relaxation alone with nature, you are here! Three meals a day, luxurious bungalows, nature and the ocean – all this creates an amazing atmosphere of relaxation .. Just be prepared that the beach itself is not nearby, but this is fully compensated by two excellent swimming pools. At low tide, you can wander along the coast, pick up seashells))) Special thanks to the administrator (a beautiful woman from Spain), who even more added pleasant impressions of this place, surrounding each guest with unobtrusive care 🙂

    “Simply Stunning! A must stay…” – March 2022

    A wonderful secluded hotel that used to be a home to a rich European family, comprised of 8 individual spacious villas and tasteful decorated with antique and modern pieces of both African flair and European touches. It is a true gem and the service is customized to your every need at the 5 star standard that you would expect! They take care of everything and submit your menus to you ahead of time to make sure it fits your dietary restrictions and preferences and that you are eating to your liking – all served by a professional chef and served in an idyllic setting. The staff and the hotel concept is very discreet, you have their contact and you communicate via messages, Priscilla was literally at my finger tips. Maite was very welcoming and managed to organize everything for me so my stay is as smooth as possible and it was!
