Tijara Beach Pungu Likoni, Kenya
Location: 6 km. South of Mombasa Island in Pungu – Kenya.
Tijara Beach is an exclusive retreat set on a seaside bluff in 5 acres of colourful gardens overlooking the Indian Ocean.
At the foot of the cliffs on which the resort perches is its own private beach.
A magnificent fresh water pool and ‘al fresco’ dining area complete this enchanting resort.
Owned and managed by Ian & Larissa Manson Hart, this secret hideaway provides an upmarket service whose intimate and personal attention gives everyone the feeling of being at home.
Only four spacious luxury cottages, each sited on its own cliff head with large open decks offer breath-taking views of the Indian Ocean.
Insect proof king size beds with exclusively handcrafted Swahili furniture reflect the warmth and character of the local architecture.
