The Getaway: South Coast, Kenya

The Much Needed Getaway

If you have been following my blog you know I recently went on a vacation to the Leopard Beach Resort in South Coast Kenya. It is one of the best resorts in Africa having been awarded the Africa’s Leading Spa Resort in 2013, 2014 and 2016 and Africa’s Leading Family Resort in 2016 and 2017 among other awards. It was an amazing experience.

The resort had hotel rooms scattered around their beautiful gardens. They had little cottages with an ocean view while others had a view to the beautiful gardens. There were many ponds on the grounds.

I especially enjoyed spending my days under the sun at the beach and going for an afternoon swim in the ocean. The resort also had two swimming pools for those who prefer that to ocean swimming.

The staff were the kindest politest people I’ve met in customer service. Leopard Beach Resort has indeed done an amazing job with its staff. My entire experience was amazing.

The airstrip is only 15 minutes away from the hotel. The main airport however is roughly an hour and a half away. I used the airstrip so my drive to and from the hotel was pretty short.

Should you ever vacation in South Coast Kenya, I would strongly recommend staying at the Leopard Beach Resort.
