Saruni Ocean is the perfect embodiment of beachfront chic on Kenya’s sun-drench south coast. Following in the footsteps of its sister Saruni safari properties, this deserted luxury hideaway reflects the same attention to detail, eco-chic design, undiscovered setting, fresh cuisine, and crowd-less exclusivity that guests have come to expect from the Saruni brand, but with the added benefit of endless Indian Ocean views from Msambweni beach. Lapped by warm waters and surrounded by white sands, Saruni Ocean is the ideal location to begin or end any Kenya luxury safari or romantic African honeymoon.

Property Details

Saruni Ocean is a complete departure from Kenya’s standard safari lodge. Secreted away on the magical Msambweni beach on Kenya’s south coast, the resort is comprised of 14 private suites housed in six beautiful eco-luxe villas. Each villa houses two independent suites—one upper and one lower—each with its own separate entrance and uninterrupted views of the white sand beach of ocean waters. The villa-style layout of Saruni Ocean creates the feeling of owning your own private beachside property, one with separate master bedrooms and open-sided living rooms, open-plan bathrooms, large walk-in wardrobes, and private portico terraces overlooking tropical gardens. Styled with local woods, bright ocean colors, and four-poster beds draped in white, the stylish suites cater perfectly for honeymooners in search of a secluded getaway or families wishing to spend quality time together.

Saruni Ocean is where guests are encouraged to kick off their shoes and revel in the sand between their toes. The property is anchored by an authentic health and wellness experience, inviting guests to rise early for a sunrise yoga session, relax in the largest infinity pool in the country, or rejuvenate at the Sarunity Spa, the first thalassotherapy spa of its kind in East Africa utilizing the Indian Ocean seawater for its healing therapies. Fine dining is also a barefoot luxury experience at Saruni Ocean, allowing guests to dine on gourmet locally-sourced cuisine and the freshest seafood in a variety of private waterside locations.

From its calming, uninhabited setting to its nearly four miles of pristine white sand beachfront on its doorstep, Saruni Ocean is the perfect place to simply relax and take in the atmosphere or enjoy the many diversions of the turquoise Indian Ocean. Guests have access to some of the world’s finest snorkeling and diving adventures, as well as memorable deep sea fishing excursions off the Kenyan Coast, cultural visits to the local villages, and game drives in the Shimba Hills National Reserve. For the truly restless, Saruni Ocean has a Water Sports Center in nearby Diani offering everything from kite surfing and paddle boarding to body boarding and kayaking. Whether right outside the door or a little further afield, guests have a plethora of pleasures right at their fingertips at Saruni Ocean.
