From luxury tented camps to freestanding bathtubs with views of Mount Kilimanjaro; discover the best Kenya hotels with Kuoni

We’ve been offering luxury holidays here for a long time and have great relationships with some of Kenya’s most iconic hotels. Together with Tanzania, Kenya is one of the best places for a safari and beach holiday – and is a popular honeymoon choice, with tented camps in the Maasai Mara (we love Mara Bushtops) and charming thatched cottages at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro – like Tawi Lodge, whose rooms all have fireplaces and freestanding bathtubs which look out to Kilimanjaro. At the extra special end of the scale, Elephant Bedroom Camp has 12 luxury tents and daily visits from elephants and monkeys in camp. But it’s not just about the safari, Kenya also has a beautiful coastline perfect for a sunny escape. The vibrant city of Mombasa is the gateway to Kenya’s tranquil coast which boasts over 300 miles of palm-fringed beaches stretching from the small town of Malindi in the north to the dazzling white sands of Diani, home to Afrochic, a villa-style boutique hotel that fronts its white sands.
