Pinewood Beach Resort is a popular small beach resort with good facilities located on a quiet stretch of beach.

Whilst Pinewood isn't exactly an intimate character boutique hotel (it has 58 rooms and multiple restaurants / bars) it offers a good compromise - not too big and corporate, but big enough to offer a spa, tennis courts, swimming pools and water-sports centre.

The location is on Galu Beach 40 km south of Mombasa, with the hotel set between the tropical forest and the Indian Ocean beach . Galu Beach is relatively uncrowded, but is only 7 km from the restaurants, bars, shopping and attractions of Diani Beach.

There is a PADI Watersports Centre, which can organise snorkelling, diving and sightseeing tours out to nearby Wasini, Kisite, Chale, Funzi and Shimoni, as well as kite surfing and windsurfing lessons.

There are 36 first floor Deluxe Rooms with garden view, balcony, king size bed, en-suite bathroom, mosquito net, ceiling fan and split unit air-conditioner and mini bar.

For families, the Baobab Suite in the main building is perfect, sleeping up to a family of six in three bedrooms with a Master bedroom with four poster bed and ensuite shower, second bedroom with queen sized bed and third bedroom with bunk beds. There is also a dining room, sitting room, large covered furnished verandah and a second shower room.

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!
