Property Description

Welcome to Distant Relatives Ecolodge – a lush and enchanting environmentally conscious beach retreat nestled along an emerald lagoon, white sand beaches & an enchanting community. Join us diving, snorkeling, moonlit dhow sailing, on village walks, windsurfing, deep sea fishing, or simply come relax and mingle with travelers from around the world in our vast, green and leafy social spaces!

Nestled between the Giriama village of Fumbini and the beautiful emerald waters of Kilifi Creek, Distant Relatives is both a message of optimism and an experimental model of environmentally and socially conscious living. Adventurers from around the world gather here to share tales of the road, mingle with the local community, and enjoy the beautiful ocean views and sunsets that Kenya has to offer. In just one hour’s drive from either Mombasa or Malindi you could be joining us for reef snorkeling trips, moonlit dhow sailing, village walks and beach bonfires, wild cliff adventures, and various live music events.

Distant Relatives is a new and unique ecolodge, hostel and backpackers, and an exceptional budget-friendly alternative to the classic hotels and resorts of the Kenyan Coast. Our accommodation options include camping, dormitories, safari tents, private rooms and beautifully designed ensuite bandas with their own charming private courtyards. Our kitchen serves some of the most delicious, mouth-watering and reasonably priced food on the coast. Wake up to the smell of local Kenyan coffee and go to bed after a full plate of fresh seafood pasta, grilled seasonal vegetables, or some of our signature Friday all-you-can-eat pizzas and free oysters!

At Distant Relatives, our philosophy has always been to work around nature, rather than making nature work around us. For us, caring for the environment and supporting our community will always be a priority and a passion, and we are happy that such efforts have led to our recent certification by Ecotourism Kenya.

Distant Relatives Ecolodge & Backpackers is staffed by a few travellers and a lot of locals ready with the best advice for your East African trip. In the spirit of Kenya’s tradition of generous hospitality, we look forward to welcoming you to our humble coastal shamba and making your stay in Kilifi the most memorable time you’ve had in East Africa!

Latest Review

" Good vibes! People of all kinds mingle here to hang out and have a good time. It’s a place to make friends and enjoy good company. Chill by the pool, leverage the bar’s offers and run down to the beach for a night late swim in the glowing water (bioluminism). Distant Relatives definitively know how to party but the place is also perfect if you need to unwind and relax. The team is very friendly and helpful, they also offer several activities (sunset dhow, snorkelling, yoga etc.). "
