I went to Lion in the Sun resort Malindi Kenya on my own in April and wasn't sure what to expect. As soon as I arrived, it was like a weight lifted and I instantly relaxed.
It's like a tucked away secret, nestled in tropical gardens - you wouldn't realise this place was there amongst the other bigger 'resort' type places in the area.
It was the most wonderful experience I have ever had on a holiday. I felt totally and utterly looked after by every member of staff, who were so attentive,
but without making you feel harassed - that is the beauty of Lion, you are left to relax and enjoy the retreat at your leisure, enjoying wonderful fresh food from the sea and organic garden, amazing service but mostly, the tranquil and calming atmosphere.
The spa is out of this world and up there with the best. The manager particularly is the most amazing woman who is very intuitive and instantly understands your requirements.
The new beach was being built when I was there but I have since seen images and it just completes it, making Lion a perfect secret getaway where you can just sit back and be looked after in complete luxury - and come out as a new woman!! What more can you ask for?!
Everything is absolutely perfect, the bedrooms, the service and the spa..i loose 3 kg every week doing sport(great personal trainer),eating healthy but tasty, relaxing and doing incredibly good massages.
The beach is beautiful and I highly recommend this spot for everyone who need to detox,relax,get in shape and focus on priorities.
For those who think about hot wine or poor service i would like to recommend a visit to the several orphanages outside..and see what being poor means and eventualy make a donation.
To me this home away from home is my favourite place in the world and i already booked my week in end of august to get energy back before Autumn.
Thanks to the Manager of the hotel and the spa to having cuddle me as their own friend,i really love my time with them.
