Reviews 4.8


A Billionaire Retreat. The perfect place to unwind and recharge.

Lion in The Sun offers Open spaces, total freedom in a unique environment, the sweet sounds of complete relaxation, the delight of discovering… self-discovery.

One of the most exclusive resorts on the Kenyan coast, Lion In The Sun, situated in Malindi on the North Kenyan coast, is miraculously poised between the great Indian Ocean and the timeless spaces of Africa.

Arab and Indian influences blend seamlessly with African architecture, accentuating the cultural heritage of the area.

With seven Suites, seven superior rooms and two singles in the main building and four different annexe structures, our guests will find space, privacy and complete freedom.

A myriad of styles which add up to a unique whole. In Lion In The Sun every interior is different because this is a different resort, an exclusive retreat where every artefact and decoration has its own history and meaning. Details and designs from different times and places fuse together to form meeting areas, hidden retreats or simply spaces where you can bask in the joy of doing nothing.

Air, Fire, Earth and Water: the elements of life. Sea, Space, Sun and Nature: Africa, life itself. Outside, a vast garden created using all manner of local plantsand shrubs surrounds our four sea-water pools. Time becomes endless as you pass from sun-bathing by the pool, to an exquisite dinner lit by the stars or by the candles of an intimate summer-house, to a vigorous work-out in our fully-equipped gym and then to a moment of pure self-discovery with the Thalaspa HC.

The private beach… a heaven of stylish relaxation

The retreat’s private beach is a heaven of stylish relaxation, located only 300 metres away in the Malindi Marine Park. A van is at the hotel to take you to the beach any time you need it.

The Indian Ocean’s turquoise waves la gently at guests feet as a personal butler brings cooling refreshments and local fishing boats glide by.
