Couples, Honeymoons & Families

Kobe Suite Resort is a stylish, intimate, luxury hotel on a private section of the Garoda beach; one of the most beautiful beaches on Kenya’s North coast. It overlooks Watamu Marine reserve across the warm, clear water where, if you don your flippers and snorkel, you can reach from the shore. Here you’ll discover beautiful coral gardens with colourful fish and perhaps even be lucky enough to spot a green turtle.

Inland from Kobe you can explore the Gede ruins, Arabuko Sokoko Forest, amble up Mida creek in a dugout canoe or bird watch from the quirky Crab Shack which hovers over the water and is accessed by a boardwalk.

You'll reach the hotel by vehicle; you can fly into Malindi Airport or Mombasa Airport then drive from here. Once at the hotel a concierge service can organize activities and excursions for you to the local area by boat, taxi or tuk tuk.

With its array of room and suite options, even a private villa, neatly divided entertainment areas and handy central-Watamu location, Kobe Suite Resort is a great option for luxury-loving honeymooners, couples in search of down time, water-loving families and groups who fancy lots of sunny, fun-filled days out.

The hotel

There are three room types at Kobe Suites Resort; standard garden view, deluxe garden view and ocean view suites. All rooms are ensuite, with stylish interiors, air-conditioning, and comfortable private patios. Standard garden view suites overlook the gardens and swimming pool and have televisions, tea and coffee facilities, a mini bar and a fully equipped bathroom with cosy robes.

For those who like to spread out a little more, consider an upgrade to the more spacious deluxe garden view suites or elevated ocean view suites, which enjoy lovely panoramic views.

For large groups or bigger families, we recommend making yourself at home at Casa Blanca by Kobe; the hotel’s luxurious, 3-bedroom private villa.

Kobe Suites Resort also has a spa, two swimming pools, a lounge and dining area overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian ocean and a bar with a very handy barman who can whip together a world-class Pina colada at a moment’s notice.


As well as two pools, a spa and a number of beach and ocean activities on your doorstep, guests can also explore the nearby area by taxi and tuk tuk. A quiet rooftop lounge also offers stunning sunset views.


There are two dining areas; a more formal restaurant by the pool and a separate, relaxed dining area overlooking the beach. Meals are a delightful fusion of coastal Swahili, Western and Italian flavours.

Why Wayfairer

 At Wayfairer we stand behind properties who know and appreciate the value of their natural surroundings and understand that conservation of these natural areas is key to our future on this planet. Kobe Suite Resort is owned and run by a long-standing Italian-Kenyan family who love the ocean, and this particularly beautiful world heritage site, as much as we do. You’ll find minimal plastic in use at the resort, and each month the staff gather for a beach clean-up, where guests are invited to join too.
