Sirai Beach House, Kilifi

Picture a Moorish-style palace, perched on a clifftop and overlooking the dazzling Indian Ocean. Sounds pretty perfect to us. This is exactly what you can expect when you arrive at Sirai Beach House in Kilifi. A grand six-bedroom house that you’ll have all to yourselves, every day at Sirai will have you pinching yourself in awe. Ingeniously designed so that every room catches the cool ocean breeze as it blows in, it offers true beachside bliss. Complete with lovely staff who will cater to your every need, a jaw-dropping infinity pool, poolside bar, tennis court, spa and wine cellar; there is literally no reason to leave. Because who would want to leave a place that makes them feel like royalty?


Sirai Beach House is a two-hour drive from Mombasa and just one hour from Malindi. Though, if that sounds a little too long a car journey for your liking, the house is just a five-minute drive from Kilifi Town Airstrip, where you can land your privately chartered plane – or alternatively, come in by chopper to land on Sirai’s own helipad. The beauty of staying at Sirai is, well, Sirai itself and we would not blame you if you spent your entire stay in the house and its grounds. It really is an African oasis.

Your room

There are six bedrooms at Sirai, available for your exclusive use. All have heavenly views out over the Indian Ocean and are furnished with bespoke design pieces. Opened up to the ocean breeze, the rooms themselves are also decorated to reflect and complement the Kenyan coastline through grey and white color tones. Effortlessly glamorous and sophisticated with enormous stone bathtubs, life at Serai is a life lived that bit more splendidly.

Why we like it

You only have to look at the architecture and furnishings to understand why Sirai Beach House is the pinnacle of luxury accommodation. Not only is it utterly palatial, but the treatment you receive there will have you living like royalty too. Locally sourced ingredients and sustainable line-caught fish, make up the delectable dishes the chefs serve daily whilst the wine cellar is stocked with carefully selected fine wines and champagnes for you to enjoy of an evening. At Sirai, the Indian Ocean is at your fingertips as you try your hand at everything from glass-bottomed kayaking, snorkelling and fishing to exhilarating wakeboarding, water skiing, windsurfing and scuba diving. Whatever you do though, make sure you head out on a sunset Dhow cruise to Kilifi Creek; it’s our highlight.
