Unspoiled relaxation in a peaceful tropical setting

Situated on the peaceful Msambweni beachfront – 20 kilometres south of Diani and away from the crowds – is this fantastic yet intimate resort with just 14 private suites. The Ocean Spa Lodge is perfect for guests who want a calm and relaxing holiday or perhaps a luxury honeymoon, in a beautiful setting where the Indian Ocean laps gently over pristine white sand.

While enjoying the tranquil location, guests can aid their relaxation by enjoying a treatment in the spa, taking part in a yoga or meditation class or floating in the 1,000 square metre infinity pool. If you want to be a little more active, there is snorkelling and scuba diving through the colourful coral reefs or deep sea fishing.

The resort is easily accessed from Diani airport via a 30 minute transfer and Diani airport is accessed via direct flights from Nairobi domestic airport. Transfers from Mombasa airport are also available and there are also links from Amboseli, Tsavo and the Masai Mara which make this an ideal location for a post-safari getaway. 

  • Intimate, with just 14 suites
  • 1000m2 infinity pool
  • Peaceful location away from the crowds

Safe place in a luxury ambiente, looking forward to stay there again

Munich, Germany

This is the place to be when you are in Mombasa. We landet at the MOI airport and were collected by the driver from Ocean Spa Lodge. After 1,5 hours we arrived at the beautiful location at Msambweni Beach. Welcomed by the super friendly manager Luca who showed us our room. We loved the interior, it was so luxury, timeless and fits so perfectly to the whole location. Our view from the king size bed was straight to the sea and we heard the sound of the ocean by night. The bathroom was beautiful furnished and the terrace was the perfect sunrise spot. The pool area was super nice, big umbrellas, very comfortable sunbeds and a chilled atmosphere. The beach was fantastic and we had it all to ourselves. From breakfast over lunch to dinner, the food was excellent. They served local fruits and vegetables and always had a lot of vegetarian options. We had a really special lunch barbecue at the beach with amazing fresh fish. Ocean Spa Lodge offers a lot of water activities, we rented some snorkeling gear and there were also surfboards, volleyballs and other water fun stuff. Two times during our stay we did a yoga session in an amazing sunrise view sports room in the morning. My partner got a massage and I got a facial. We both enjoy out treatment at the Spa. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were always looking after us and asked if we needed anything. All in all we had a fantastic time at the Ocean Spa Lodge and we’re looking forward to visit it again.

The paradise to relax after safari

Berlin, Germany

A wonderful way to relax after safari. We ended our visit to Kenya with a stay at the Ocean Spa Lodge after three days on safari and could not have asked for a better place to relax and recharge before heading home. It was ideal, a small number of villa. First class accommodations relaxed atmosphere with large bedrooms beautiful decorated with lovely ambience, big luxurious bathrooms and large terraces, large pool offers stunning views of the Ocean. This is a new lodge managed by Luca and his wife Julia who are Italian. They are really attentive and are supported by a really friendly helpful group of staff.  The resort sits on a soft sandy stretch of beach our suite overlooked the ocean. The gardens / grounds are perfectly cultivated and beautifully kept and everything in resort is incredibly clean. You can do a great beach walk, or be happy just within the resort grounds, which are beautiful. The spa has a range of treatments with a massage, facial and pedicure all of which were very enjoyable. The therapists, like all of the staff, are friendly and make you feel relaxed. The food is amazing and the wine plentiful. The chef came out to see us every evening to see if we had enjoyed her delicious food. One evening the staff asked us if we would like a BBQ on the beach. They organize everything perfectly. We enjoyed a feast of fresh fish, lobster and steak, it was a delightful evening. Fresh ingredients prepared with skill and imagination and a menu full of variety and everything absolutely delicious. All the staff delightful; every single person from the gardener to the head waiter utterly charming , helpful and courteous  This is the perfect spot to just relax and restore your mind and spirit. While we were here we also enjoyed jogging and walking together and wading out looking at sea creatures in the warm shallow waters along this beautiful stretch of beach.  This was literally the best place for us to unwind after our safari adventures. Very well recommend!!
