Kinasi Lodge - a small, luxury lodge situated in a coconut and cashew plantation on a hillside overlooking Chole Bay on Mafia Island - provides a high standard of accommodation. Beautifully furnished with antiques and hand-crafted furniture, the intention at Kinasi has been to create a resort that is relaxing and stylish, with a very personal feel.
But above all there is tranquility and privacy in beautiful, natural surroundings, and friendly staff who look after you with service to your rooms, morning tea and coffee with fresh biscuits and cakes, sundowners and cocktails, delicious food and attention to any requests you may have. Kinasi started as a private home, and that is how guests are made to feel - as if they are in their own home. So enjoy Mafia and this little retreat with all its activities, the relaxed atmosphere and good company.
The dining room is appointed with crockery and hand-blown glassware made specially for Kanasi and there are original works of art by East African artists. Catering is based upon local seafood, with fresh vegetables and fruit flown from the mainland. Bread, rolls, pizzas and variety of yoghurts, preserves and sauces are all home made from traditional recipes. Seafood barbecues and Swahili cuisine are established Kinasi customs.
