Whitesands Beach Hotel

Whitesands Beach Hotel is a beautiful 4 star beach resort on the North coast of Mombasa, Kenya. It is situated in Bamburi, to the North of Mombasa and approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Mombasa Airport. Whitesands Beach Hotel is built on 22 acres of picturesque palm-lined property with an immaculate white beach – from where its name. Whitesands Beach Hotel boasts the longest seafront on the North Coast and easily one of the best beaches in East Africa. Whitesands Beach Hotel began as a house with two bedrooms in 1930 when H.G. Robertson, the editor of the Mombasa Times (today the Standard) bought and named the property. In 1946 Whitesands Beach Hotel was sold to David Durwood Brown who quickly made the place popular amongst the locals as the ‘pub by the sea’. The ‘pub by the sea’ was sold two more times and finally became the property of the Sarova Group of Companies who still own it today and pride themselves is this 340 room 4-star prize of a hotel.

Title: A treasure you should bag

We drove to the hotel towards the end of Feb with my wife and two sons (the younger one was 2 months old). Thanks for the complimentary hibiscus drink they welcomed us with and I was very happy with the way they checked us in in a flash and gave us a room near the reception because of our young son even though everything seemed arranged to be easy to reach. The reception was wonderful too. I loved the area around Tulia spa, very quiet and serene. The location of the hotel is beautiful and their beach is clean. Their restaurants have a wonderful setting and serves fresh fruits with lots of varieties during all the meals. The staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly, one of which was my greatest concerns after taking a two month old.

After our safari experience we were booked here for 4 nights and we had a blast on each if them. There are lots of activities for kids and I must specially mention Mary of Ozone Kids club who took special care of our kids. The food as usual of all Sarova Hotels is well spread and amazing, catering to all. The night entertainment was also good, with acrobats, bollywood night, the dance on Jhoom barabar Jhoom was even better than the actual film. The spa is also located facing the beach and was a wonderful and soothing experience. Not to mention the pool with the slide for kids. Its a huge property and well managed and catered to. Would love to come again and again.
