10/10 Exceptional

We were two couples visiting beautiful Mafia Island and stayed in Kivulini Lodge. Such good service and personnel there, you really feel that you're welcome. Location is much closer to the main road than indicated by Lodges were clean, warm water available and nice own terrace for chilling out. Dinner was good as well. I can really recommend this place for travellers wanting to have more quiet place to stay in.

The property was very pretty and clean. The manager Frank was amazing. He arrange my transport to the lodge, set up snorkeling, had someone drive me to the dive shop, and then actually drove me to the airport at the end of my two night stay. Great value and lovely service!

Very good
Free wifi was not working in lodge accommodations, but only in restaurant and not all the time. Kivulinis actual location is a bit better than in search page displayed. Kivulinis managers have good connections with every other service providers in the island. On Mafia island you must pay a marine conservation fee too.
