Nice hotel on a really lovely beach. The day-to-day staff are the stars of the show, the front desk team are lovely, the rooms were cleaned well and the bar and food staff were all really friendly. On top of that the ‘animators’ Kani and Momo were great with checking in and organising things around the hotel during the day and in the evenings. We had the half board option, breakfasts were nice but the dinners were quite similar each night so we ended up eating down the beach a few nights (Chichi’s is a local restaurant, 5min walk, with great food and cheap prices!). Would recommend not booking with the hotel for excursions - we did it for ease, but the costs were very high and the service quite poor in comparison to the hotel. Note that the ‘Safari Blue’ offered by the hotel isn’t the official safari blue, but a knockoff version, which isn’t made clear - and everyone on our boat was charged $50pp including transport, whereas ours through the hotel was $130pp. Unfortunately when we raised this the Operations Manager for the hotel was incredibly rude - we proposed an amount we thought was fair for the service rather than the full price, she made a big issue of it, before accepting our original proposal - which left a really sour taste from what had been a good stay. The remainder of the stay was a 4*, but the Operations Manager’s behaviour reflects really poorly on the hotel - good thing she’s not in a customer service role!

We stayed for a few nights here and also went to the dive shop! They have air conditioning in the rooms which is great and also a spa on site, and wifi throughout the rooms and hotels. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. We got the breakfast package and then charged the other things to the room (it's cheaper to pay cash). The buffet was great and changed every night. They also changed their drink specials every day which is nice! The drinks are made with fresh fruit (there is fresh fruit everyday with all the meals available as well). They do offer all inclusive food packages but I decided not to do it so I could eat at other restaurants at the beach. Con: regular meals (not buffet) can be pricey for the portions you receive. Bedroom had a outdoor patio and outdoor shower which was nice. They even have two robes and a safety box in the room. Overall I would recommend staying here and they offer services like spa, and tours at the front desk. Don't forget to bring cash to tip!

Kena Beach is an extremely peaceful and relaxing hotel with beautiful gardens, spacious fully-detached rooms, large bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, many food options, a dive centre, and wonderful staff. It was the perfect retreat after 10 days of safari and we didn't want to leave. We travelled with our father/father-in-law, and he was there a few days before us alone. The staff looked after him so well. He also learned to dive with the great dive centre Scubafish. We went B&B but had lunch in the hotel everyday as well, and some dinners. The food is good value. There are also many options for dinner nearby, and we particularly liked walking along the beach to The Rock and Seles. The beach is great is beautiful. The whole place is very relaxing and quiet but with the excitement of diving. The perfect place to rest and recharge. Would definitely return.

THIEVES WORK HERE and the hotel doesn't care. We had multiple items taken from our locked room while staying here. We notified staff in writing and recieved no response. AVOID AT ALL COSTS if you don't want to be robbed on your holiday and then have nothing done about it. Was prepared to believe it was one bad egg ruining our holiday but the absolutely disgusting lack of service and/or care highlights that this is a deeply rooted issue and they aren't worthy of guests.

We had such a lovely time with Hishma and the team at Kena where we enjoyed our honeymoon! We were treated like family and looked after very well. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was super friendly. The rooms are beautiful, the food delicious and the atmosphere very relaxing. We would highly recommend a visit here and wish we could return every year!
