Having seen most of Kenya's beach properties, I can tell you Delta Dunes Lodge is heaven on earth.
Remote, beautiful bush design, excellent cuisine/sea food, cool activities: A must go!
What a lodge! What a location!
This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. We were here for 3 nights.
Unfortunately for the lodge it has no other guests, fortunately for us; we were the only guests :-)
This meant we got the largest "room" at the whole lodge!
The rooms are made from driftwood, wood and "makuti" and very open, yet there is privacy. There is some very nice Swahili style furniture in the rooms as well.
Our "room" was actually big It had a mini kitchen underneath where someone would come by and make tea whenever you wanted.
All the rooms are far apart so there is no issue of privacy.
The rooms are tastefully decorated. I have never been to a place like this in
Service was impeccable. The staff from the guards to the servers and the chefs are simply amazing.
We had fresh seafood
for lunch and dinner daily. Caught that day, cooked that day. The lodge buys
seafood from a nearby fishing village. The chefs make great pastries, salads
and soups as well. Words or pictures simply don't do this place justice.
This is a hosted camp, which means the camp managers will have breakfast and lunch with you, but give you your privacy for dinner. David and Lara are amazing hosts with a great background. We enjoyed their company and learned a lot from them.
This is a place for active people who like a little adventure with their beach holiday. You can kayak, surf, sand surf or go fishing. In the evening, you can go for a sunset cruise on a speedboat. This had to be one of my favorite activities.
Photographers and bird watchers would love this activity. We saw hippos, crocodiles, water buck and plenty of bird. These cruises were simply breathtaking.
The best part is you can have a sundowner on the
speedboat. A Tusker in the evening on a speedboat at the Delta? AMAZING!!!!
Again this place is for active people, because you have to walk at least 10 minutes down the dunes to the beach and back up, if you are having dinner in the main reception, going to your room high on a dune is about 163 steps :-)
Oh and do not worry about security. This lodge is surrounded by villages although you cannot see them from the lodge. The lodge has security in the surrounding areas, they have 3 armed guards patrolling 24/7.
I only hope we can go here again someday.
