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.).

What a perfect piece of paradise! Everything I wanted for a break from the city. Good vibes, great people, locals & travellers, the creek is nice to swim in especially at night where you can see the phenomenon of bio luminescent plankton - pure magic. There are handy volunteers organising fun things to do, dinners out, fishing and snorkelling. The music is nice and the bar has a great atmosphere for a nice, cold beer. Comfortable beds and clean facilities. Great seafood... I could go on.

Distant Relatives was a perfect mix of backpackers and private getaway. It's set on a hill with a view of Kilifi creek among baobab trees with a pool and quick access to a semi-private beach. From dorms to private large Banda cottages with delicious homemade specials every night, Distant Relatives has a place for everyone. The staff is helpful and accommodating and I can't wait for my next stay here.
