Severin Sea Lodge is one of my favorite stopovers whenever I am in Mombasa. There are so many reasons why this is the lodge to choose when you want to combine bush and beach vacation.
Let's start with all the excursions they offer:
Opened in 1972 and conveniently located on Bamburi beach overlooking the sparkling turquoise waters of Mombasa Marine Park Reserve, Severin Sea Lodge is one of the oldest establishments on the northern coast of Mombasa.
To date, it has maintained its iconic status as a favorite stop for many travelers heading out on a safari beach vacation - who want a little bit of ocean bliss and a little bit of bush bliss.
Being a family-owned business, the charms of the hotel have been maintained from generation to generation… bringing out an extension of Kenya’s bush safari’s to the beach. From the design, (the round African huts, canvas tented restaurant, real wildlife animal antiques furnishing on walls, and pictures that portray history) it depicts our county’s safari heritage.
On arrival, the ambiance of African bush and beach is almost on every corner.
Featuring relaxed and more personalized hospitality, Severin Sea Lodge has three restaurants. The Safari Bristol Restaurant, The Kisima Restaurant, and award-winning Imani Dhow Restaurant.
Our Tip. Have you ever dined in a dhow? Try Amani Dhow Restaurant. Having docked here from Zanzibar some forty years ago, it was converted into a Seafood restaurant. The ambiance is idealistic and romantic. Ooh… and there is a 20% discount on food and drinks for in-house guests.
The hotel features also three bars; the round table Safari bar, the Swing bar, and the swimmer bar, and two swimming pools located within a vast grove of palms.
Depending on your requirement you have several rooms to choose from, deluxe, superior, suits, or comfort bungalows which are either garden view, pool view, or sea view rooms. If you have a family, interconnecting rooms are the best option.
The rooms are all very spacious and they are furnished with handmade wooden furniture, high-speed internet, TVs, and modern amenities.
Occasionally they organize coastal or Italian or German theme nights for guests. Although there isn’t a kid’s club centre, they do organize some tailored fanfare for kips depending on their number.
Severin Sea Lodge is an Eco-friendly hotel and it has implemented award-winning environmental projects such as a biological treatment plant and integrated solar technology, photovoltaics, and a seawater desalination plant.
There is also a Give Back program to the community that helps improve the welfare of children in Mombasa. Severin Training Center offers free artisan programs to less privileged children to enable them to be productive in society.
Your stay will help to support this noble work.
