Tijara is a beautiful small boutique beach hotel on the South coast of Kenya. It is very quiet and tranquil place where you can take a leisurely stroll in our gardens and along the ocean front or walk on the reef at low tide looking for shells and tropical fish hiding in tidal pools. The views of the Indian Ocean and the fresh clean air will revitalize your spirit!


Our team of gardeners under the close supervision of Ian, who designed all the landscapes himself, have worked tirelessly to convert the overgrown bush and the millions of jagged rocks and stones which we found when we bought the land, into a beautiful tropical garden with manicured lawns, exquisite shrubs and both indigenous and exotic trees. We have an abundant variety of animal, bird and butterfly species which choose to frequent our grounds. These include the timid bush babies, dik-diks, wild pigs, Agama and monitor lizards, civet cats, budges, the magnificent fish-eagle, beautiful carmine and white throated bee eaters, weavers, sunbirds, kingfishers, herons, storks, egrets, ever busy night jars, and the list goes on. It seems that even wildlife now use Tijara as their own personal small boutique beach hotel giving us the pleasure of their company all year round!


At Tijara you will find the most spectacular breathtaking views, gentle waves will caress your feet, the moon will rise up from the ocean, and the stars will twinkle as you may have never seen them! Kenya has this special quality of crawling into people’s heart and never letting go. We are sure that you will fall in love with Tijara Beach as we did upon our first visit as it is more than just a small boutique beach hotel, for many of our guests it becomes their second home and they keep coming back with their friends and families!
