The most striking feature of Dongwe Club resort are the grounds that are thoroughly well kept and decorated by a great number of beautifully blooming Bougainville and Hibiscus plants.
The structure is very well conceived presenting a slowly descending slope toward the pool and the beach, which makes the view over the ocean from the reception area and main hall breathtaking.
The structure is also very well integrated with the local architecture and is dominated by very tall straw roofs with a wooden supporting frame.
Spaces are generously distributed, with a large and comfortably furnished main hall, and a very spacious and luminous dining area.
The food was excellent, with a great variety and remarkable hygiene.
Local people working at the resort are very kind, most of them speaking pretty good English and almost all of them speaking Italian.
The housekeeping lady that took care of our room once decorated the entire room with flowers from the grounds and folding the towels in the shape of a swan.
The pool is situated right next to the beach avoiding a definite separation between spending time at the pool or at the beach and is filled with salted water.
The beach is very well kept and made of soft, thin and white sand and is normally quite wide, although when approaching a full moon the high tide reaches a terraced beach area that guarantees a dry beach area to lay on.
One of the nicest features of this resort is the long wooden dock, that provides access to deeper water when the tide is low and that also harbours a delightful and quaint restaurant (that you have to book for) that sits right over water with a beautiful breeze and great atmosphere at night.
This is also the location for the dock party once a week at the resort.
The animation is provided by an Italian team of animators and entertainers who are generally quite capable of speaking English as well.
The animation is not invasive and intrusive as in many other resorts.
Tides are very strong on this coastline
For anybody seeking some nightlife, Paje (especially on Friday nights at Paje by Night), is the place to go, where parties include a surprising variety of people participating, from Europeans on vacation to local young men, from Masais to South Africans, Kenyans and Australians owning or running businesses down there.
Conversely, people that stayed at the Dongwe Club have all expressed a very positive opinion of the place.
