Tijara offers luxury intimate accommodation with only 4 exceptional cottages which are situated a good distance apart to ensure full privacy. Each cottage is beautifully sited on its own cliff head with large open decks commanding stunning Indian Ocean seascapes and complemented by our very attractive gardens. The cottages are refreshed by the cooling monsoon breezes that blow gently off the Indian Ocean all year round, and if it is a little too warm one can make use of the fan conveniently placed directly above the bed. All cottages overlook our beautiful grounds and have full views of the vast expanses of the azure Indian Ocean beyond.


The traditional Swahili style of our cottages with carved doors and high makuti (coconut thatch) roofs is complimented by exclusively handcrafted Swahili furniture with ornate carvings and rich decoration, tasteful decor and rich warm lighting. All authentic Swahili furniture was lovingly restored or specially made for us by the local craftsmen. The rooms have large decks where guests can choose to bask in the sun in an open area or keep cool under a huge makuti roof, refreshed by the gentle caress of the ever present monsoon breezes. As the sun sets, painting a fiery red and amber sky, our guests can enjoy a sun downer while they await the spectacular full moon or clear sparkling stars to emerge as Africa bids a very good night.


Every cottage is very spacious with a large private deck which one can step on to from both the room and the bathroom. All cottages are en-suite with double wash basins, double showers and uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean from wherever you are! Our honeymoon cottage has a king size bath tub to add romance to your occasion. All guests will enjoy their privacy and spectacular panoramas from their own private deck in truly luxury intimate accommodation on a beautiful Kenya coast.
