+254 796 035766 |


This is not a love story.

It's a story, with a great love. Or maybe it's a great love, with a story inside.
This love, this story, was born in the small fishing bay of Mayungu, a wild paradise hidden between Malindi and Watamu, a pristine place where the unexplored charm of this land and the authenticity of its people has been preserved over the years.
Here, in the heart of one of the most famous marine reserves on the East African coast, facing the wonder of the coral atolls and the crystal clear ocean, our dream has been to create a small oasis of peace that blends perfectly with the lush setting of the surrounding bay in order to preserve its natural beauty.
The Malaika Beach Villas, an EcoLodge Resort with direct access to the sea, is located right where the Indian Ocean reaches the peak of transparency enchanting its variety of shades of blue.
The Malaika Beach Villas is an exclusive resort who can boast of 17 comfortable accommodation solutions (from one to four bedrooms) developed around a majestic swimming pool.
The structure is cozy, well maintained and the sea is just 150 metres away, Malaika is the ideal place to relax and immerse yourself in the most heavenly and unspoiled nature.


The resort's independent villas are equipped with all kind of comfort: air conditioning, fully equipped kitchen, bedrooms with wardrobe, private bathrooms and private gardens.
Each cottage is different but all of them have a large veranda overlooking the pool and some Villas have a terrace on the upper floor.
We offer additional services at extra cost such as: personal chef, rental car, nanny for children and concierge.
