About Lion in the Sun Retreat

Lion in the Sun Retreat is situated just outside the town of Malindi on Kenya's beautiful coastline. This luxury boutique hotel is the ideal destination for those looking for a tranquil beach holiday. The Lion in the Sun artfully blends distinctive African character with strong Arabic influences, creating a unique atmosphere in a breathtaking setting.

There are 16 beautifully appointed en-suite rooms, each of which is individually designed, featuring elegant furnishings with an African flair. The decor draws on both African and Indian inspiration and ensures a unique space with luxurious amenities, privacy and comfort. The rooms are set in clusters of four, all sharing a swimming pool and an outdoor seating area.

The manicured tropical gardens that surround the hotel create a tranquil space in which to relax, but also a wonderful place where the children can play. Each cluster of rooms has its own sea-water swimming pool to conserve water. Lion in the Sun forms part of the exclusive Henri Chenot group and offers a relaxing spa experience with six treatment cabins, sea-water hydrotherapy facilities and a hair salon to ensure you'll be well-rested and rejuvenated. The state-of-the-art gym is small, yet fully equipped and offers the services of a personal trainer to advise you on your training.
