Cardamom House is your perfect beach hideaway presented in 4 Villas (10 rooms) with elegant Swahili-inspired architecture, afro-chic interiors and a private white-sand, blue water beach lined with palm trees.
Its location, Kuruwitu, Vipingo, is home to Kuruwitu Marine Area, the first locally managed marine park in Kenya, stretching 7.5miles protecting marine life while sustainably supporting almost 30,000 villagers.
Our architect has a profound passion for Swahili architecture and beauty of the wild jungle-like coast.
To preserve the natural palms and vegetation, we designed Cardamom House around the existing nature, wildlife, textures and elements.
This means that each villa will have a green element in or around it.
