Funzi Keys, Funzi Island

Just a 15-minute flight separates Funzi Keys from the bustle of Mombasa, but it might as well be a world apart. Surrounded by scattered islets and mangroves, the resort commands a long stretch of west-facing beach on a secluded island off the south coast. Funzi's nine seaside bungalows are discreetly hidden among the casuarinas and coconut palms; the eight lower-cost garden cottages are set back a bit further, but still within eyeshot of the beach. Thatched roofs, coral walls, and hand-carved beds take a page from the local design book, while elegant stone floors and cavernous bathrooms add touches of Western luxury. Graceful dhow rides offer the perfect vibe for a sunset cocktail (known as a sundowner to locals), and honeymooners will appreciate the island's mellow mood. Adventurous visitors can shell out extra for canoe safaris, diving, and deep-sea fishing. No need to worry if you don't reel anything in: Seafood abounds on the extensive menu, which pays homage to owner Alessandro Torriani's Italian roots. Guests can opt for a half-board stay if three decadent meals a day are a bit much. However, with nothing but tiny fishing villages nearby, you won't have other dining options.

Closed April through mid-July.
