Accommodation in Malindi

Tourism is a great asset in Malindi Town. For more than a decade now, this municipality known as the “little Italy” of Africa is known to be a go-to place for holidays, adventure, and leisure.

As in any major town, there is a big variety of accommodation options to choose from in Malindi, from basic lodges or guesthouses to mid-range hotels, to sumptuous private houses and villas. What you are assured of is the ability to find an accommodation option within your budget.
Although prices tend to rise once in a while, they are still much lower than prices in other major coastal towns, and booking online with us in advance gives you the best deals.

So, as nature demands, where to reside becomes a need and a want. I would like to expound more on the variety in terms of accommodation for knowledge’s sake. A detailed description below would be helpful on what to consider when choosing where to stay.

Types of accommodation

There is a range of categories when it comes to accommodation. Here we do have Catered accommodation and Self Catered accommodation

Catered Accommodation

Catered accommodation provides the tourist with food. The food may or may not be included in the price of the hotel.

Catering comes in different shapes and sizes and in different amounts. Half-board usually means that the tourist will be given breakfast and dinner as part of their hotel package. Full board means that they will be given three meals and all-inclusive means that they have unlimited food and drinks throughout the day. Bed ad breakfast provides only breakfast.

Some accommodation is sold as ‘room only but provides the opportunity for the tourist to purchase food at an additional cost. This is still classified as a catered accommodation type.

Catered accommodation is generally associated with several facilities including the following facilities:

  • Room
  • Reception
  • Restaurant and Bar
  • Housekeeping
  • Leisure facilities
  • Gym or Health club
  • Conference and Business facilities
  •  Entertainment

Self-catered or non-catered accommodation

Self-catered and non-catered accommodation are types of accommodation that do not offer food. Self-catered accommodations offer cooking facilities, such as a small kitchen and cooking equipment. Non-catered accommodation is likely a room-only accommodation with no cooking facilities.

Products and services that are typically offered in self-catered and non-catered accommodation options include the following:

  • Rooms
  •  Kitchen
  • Tent
  • Caravan pitch
  • Entertainment
  • Sports facilities
  • Laundry facilities
  • Showers

Self-catering accommodation has become more popular in recent years with the growth of the sharing economy. Properties owners can now easily rent their accommodation to tourists through intermediaries, who connect the tourist with the property owner.

This cosmopolis, Malindi, about two hours north of Mombasa which thrives economically through tourists both international and domestic has a variety of accommodation facilities as follows: Hotels, Bed, and Breakfast, Hostels, Resorts, Guest House, Holiday Cottages, CampingLuxury Apartments as part of the available package.
