Rooms and accommodation

Kusini meaning ‘winds from the south’ in Swahili, is designed to reflect its surroundings, allowing nature to encompass the space from the outside, whilst framing the view from the inside. This open design gives the elements a free-flow in and out of the space, further encouraging a sense of immersion in nature.

Kusini offers 5 luxurious bedrooms, 2 beachside bandas, communal dining areas with ocean views, a freshwater pool and multiple lounging spaces. Whether you’re a sun worshipper, a shade seeker, in a couple or flying solo, there’s a corner in our abode to match your needs.

Each bedroom features a private veranda and en suite, and are fitted with ceiling fans. Guests benefit from a daily room service, together with a complimentary laundry option.


Kusini is rented out in full and not per room.
