Overview

The Funzi Keys is situated on a remote peninsular, 10 km North of Shimoni village off the Kenyan coast. An ideal place to unwind, this remote island is peaceful and beautiful with plenty to explore.

This beach hideaway consists of a number of cottages surrounding a laid back thatched lounge and dining area and 45 metre fresh water pool with stunning beach views. The beautiful beaches and private decks make Funzi the ultimate get away and sandbank picnics, massages and manicures are all available to add to the experience. Whilst the island is a perfect place to relax there are also a number of active things to do including a range of watersports, scuba diving, deep sea fishing and sailing. The luxury lodge is owned and managed by an Italian family and so rest assured the food is delicious!

The accommodation at Funzi is split into 9 lovely seafront thatched cottages having sea view or seafront positions. Designed in Swahili coastal style with large netted windows and colourful upholstery the bedrooms fit well into the beach setting. Each of the individually designed bedrooms have hand carved king-sized four poster beds, oversized bathrooms and private seating area whilst the beach-front cottages also have a jacuzzi. There are also two family cottages available with adjoining rooms for children and en-suite facilities.

Children of all ages are welcome and childcare is available for parents who want some time out. The range of activities makes this a perfect place to keep the kids entertained whilst giving the parents some time to relax.

  • 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!

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
