Funzi Island, Kenya

Gold price level

Mango Opinion

We love Funzi Keys HUGE rooms, swimming pool, all inclusive massages, and incredible cuisine. Everything is tailored to your daily desire. Whether this you want a private trip to a nearby atoll with chilled drinks or to choose where to take your meals - at the pool, on the beach, in the restaurant or in your villa. Funzi offers the best scuba diving that we have experienced on the Kenyan coast.

Funzi is all inclusive and worth every penny. The Funzi Keys are ideal for a romantic escape while at the same time a great option for families, as the owners live there with their kids and have two great family houses for clients. The lodge is not new but well maintained. 

Tucked away on an unspoiled island in the Indian Ocean, The Funzi Keys unique appeal is its luxurious seclusion and beautiful natural scenery. This remote and exclusive hideaway is the perfect place to escape from the outside world in style.

Accommodations consist of nine spacious cottages set along the high-water line and constructed of stone and thatch with large netted windows open to the balmy sea breezes. Each of the individually designed rooms has a hand carved king-sized bed, furnished with colorful fabrics and Jacuzzi. All cottages have fans, safes and beach accessories. In front of each cottage is a private sitting area where a campfire is lit each night and guests can enjoy a drink and watch the sun go down in total privacy. At the heart of Funzi Keys is the informal yet stylish main building where guests can relax by at the bar or sample freshly caught seafood and other delights at the upper-level restaurant that overlooks the water.

Life at The Funzi Keys is relaxed and many guests do little more than unwind on the wooden deck of the free-form pool with a drink while watching the local fishing dhows sail by. For more energetic guests there is sailing, creek fishing, snorkeling, windsurfing and canoeing.
