The Sands at Nomad offers you the ultimate beach getaway. A combination of discretion, tranquility and warmth with the privilege of Kenya’s best beach.

Nestled within 26 acres of pristine coastal forest, The Sands is the coast’s first ‘Boutique Hotel’. Stepping away from the traditional block hotel concept into an atmosphere of space, freedom and personal care, The Sands showcases a unique fusion of nature, Swahili architecture, Italian interior décor, antique Arabic furniture and a twist of luxury.

Centered upon a 5 meter-deep futuristic pool with a central gazebo, the sinuously curved central reception area features an atmospheric lounge with a shaded A la Carte Restaurant and Romanesque bar. Deep in the forest shade is a wellness and spa treatment center.  

In keeping with the hotel’s world-class style and innovation, our accommodation comprises a unique selection of 18 comfortable rooms with en-suite facilities, 7 exclusive beachfront cottages and 12 luxurious suites, many with private Jacuzzis, sundowner terraces and spacious sitting rooms. All rooms have been individually interior designed and furnished with an inspired combination of Swahili objects, d’art furniture and Mario’s finest mahogany work. 

The resort also offers a relaxing, wave-lapped beach bar and restaurant, a watersports center for surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, windsuring and kayaking and an international dive school, Diving the Crab. Explore the hidden treasures of Kenya’s magnificent underwater world with luxury dives, both group and individual, and enjoy a spot of game fishing.

With an unrivalled, idyllic setting and a perfect blend of everything you need, The Sands is the ideal place to start your holiday.

Welcome to sunny Kenya!
