Cocokinodo | Modern Galu Beach Retreat
Upon arrival, you will be blown away by the size and beauty of this architectural masterpiece. Luxurious, high-tech, and magnificent, this modernist beach home is located on the pristine East African coast and has direct access to the miles of empty white-sand Galu beach. With a resort-like 20-meter swimming pool, an all-weather tennis court, a fully-equipped gym, and a staff of 11, you will surely have an exciting yet restful stay at Cocokinondo.
The ultimate sophisticated and stylish private hideaway, Cocokinondo is extraordinarily roomy, tastefully decorated, and impressively cool throughout. Every corner of the massive estate will surprise you with its minimalist yet imposingly elegant beauty.
The house, guest house, and grounds are extensively equipped, and no expense has been spared to ensure every comfort and facility is on hand for guests to feel at home. Maintained to the highest standard, you will have no care in the world during your one-of-a-kind vacation.
There is an excellent, hotel-trained staff of about a dozen to assist you during your stay. An experienced guest relations manager is also on hand to assist with menu planning and shopping, airport transfers, and other arrangements. They can act as a concierge and organize excursions, massage & spa treatments, and other such activities on request at an additional cost.
While it might be tempting to pull up the drawbridge and luxuriate in self-contained serenity and seclusion, guests can find all the attractions of Kenya’s South Coast easily accessible. The property sits at the start of over 15 kilometers of gorgeous beaches, with the restaurants, bars, and shops of Diani Beach just a short distance away.
