Xanadu Beach Villa is at Kikambala, near Mombasa on the Kenya coast. It is an ideal vacation place for family and for friends. You get more privacy. We are less formal and we want you to enjoy your vacation.

We are self catering but our staff will help as much as they can so that you have more time to enjoy the swimming pool, the beach, the sun, the ocean breezes or simply doze off to the tune of the wind and waves.

Try a massage or go for a walk during the day to enhance your relaxation.

Don't want to cook? There are restaurants nearby. Or, have someone cook for you.

The rooms have a television and a digital satellite TV service. Air conditioning is there if you need it. We can help arrange your shopping, a safari or an excellent dining experience. Use fans only for a discount.

Further details indoors

Each of the two bungalows has a single apartment with a bedroom and kitchen/dining/living area and a double appartment with two bedrooms and a kitchen/living/dining area.

The maisonette has two bedrooms and a kitchen/dining/living area.

The maisonette has the largest combined kitchen/living/dining area followed by the double units in the bungalows.

All furnishings including bathrooms are of the highest standards. Each appartment is equipped with a sofa bed. Guests can use the poolside/beachside huts for relaxation or or enjoying a meal.

The pool and the beach are a few metres away, so if you have children, you can keep them within sight.

Further details outdoors

Some bathrooms are supplied with a shower and bathtub. Others have a jacuzzi/shower/tub facility.

The water in the swimming pool is usually warm. We have added rooftop solar panels to increase pool temperature. The internal dimensions of the pool are 12.4 metres by 7.1 metres. The deep end is 1.72M, the shallow end 1.12M.

Small dhows often sail by and are available to guests who want to take a short sailing trip.

For those who want to go fishing, facilities are no far away. Guests can also book a dinner on a large dhow at one of two local restaurants.

The offshore reef is very popular. Guests can walk to the reef from the villa.

Further details

All apartments are on the ground floor so restricted mobility and wheelchair guests should have few problems.

We love pet lovers but prefer that visitors not bring their pets.

Smokers are welcome but should not smoke in the bedrooms or public areas. Kenya law imposes some restrictions on where one can smoke.

Children are welcome. Visitors wishing to reduce costs may wish to accomodate children on the sofa beds.

About this location

The Coast Province region

The Kenyan Coast is warm all year round. The rains fall from around March to June. The rest of the year is pretty dry. However, sunshine is never far away even in the rainy season.

Kenya is an ex-British colony and english is spoken and understood widely. Swahili is the other national language spoken throughout Kenya but particularly at the coast that has a long 'swahili' history with trade and cultural links to some middle eastern countries.

Visitors may wish to visit the 'Mombasa Old Town' or Fort Jesus for an historical perspective, Haller Park for wildlife, Mombasa Marine National Park and Reserve for snorkeling or diving, enjoy deep sea fishing, or go on a dhow cruise for dinner.

Visitors may also enjoy a trip to Malindi or Watamu, or a safari experience in one Kenya's parks.


Mombasa is Kenya's major city on the coast. It has an international airport and some charter companies offer cheap flights to Mombasa.

The international airport is also served by Kenya's national airline, Kenya Airways.

Mombasa is a popular tourist destination receiving visitors from all over the world.

When in Mombasa, make sure to see the 'Old Town', visit Fort Jesus, drop in on Haller Park, dive down to the Mombasa Marine National Park, take off on a deep sea fishing trip, dine out on a dhow or take a trip to one of the wildlife parks.
