Located close to South Kotu and set directly on the beach, this adult-only, all-inclusive resort was opened in 2019, and makes for the perfect couple’s retreat.
Located close to South Kotu and fronting the golden sands of Kotu Beach, Kalimba Beach Hotel opened in December 2019. Set up as an all-inclusive resort, the hotel offers a friendly welcome with a relaxed programme of activities such as water aerobics and boules with a regular evening entertainment programme offering live music.
Alternatively, choose to relax by the enticing pool running the length of the gardens, or soak up the African sunshine on the sands directly outside the hotel. If a beauty treatment sounds tempting, visit the sister hotel, Tamala Beach, right next door, which has its own spa offering a wide range of treatments for an additional charge, as well as a well-equipped gym.
The rooms are modern with a good range of amenities, combining calming colours with an African twist. For that extra special experience, a number of swim-up rooms are available. When it comes to dining, a buffet with live cooking offers a range of different cuisine options and an outside terrace allows you to enjoy the warm African evenings.
