The Mnarani Club is set within 40 acres of beautifully colourful gardens, high on a cliff overlooking the stunning Kilifi Creek.
A gorgeous infinity pool with views that stretch out across the creek is the focal point of this medium sized, all inclusive resort. A great selection of watersports are offered and the resort is limited to adults and children over 16 years of age. This rule is not strictly adhered to, however, so check with the management if this affects you.
There are around 20 sea view rooms at Mnarani Club which have wonderful views of the creek and the rest are garden rooms which spread around a large open garden with a profusion of colourful bougainvilea bushes and other flowers. In the centre is a pool which Mnarani residents may use if they prefer a private swim away from the main infinity pool which is also close by. Although technically, the Mnarani Club is not open to children, there usually are some children around, and this pool is perfect for them as it is shallow.
The rooms are very nice, although not huge, they are clean and have all mod cons. Mosquitto nets, ensuite shower rooms, TV, and so on. They all have a small verandah where guests can sit and enjoy a sundowner.
