This home away from home villa can be booked as your very own private retreat or as individual suites.
Upendo is more than a hotel, and you will immediately feel at home in our fully-serviced, five-bedroom villa with stunning infinity pool with one of the most unique views on the island of the famous Rock restaurant.
High, open makuti (palm) roof, contemporary architectural design, double story villa with vibrant accents and classic essentials seamlessly combine with unique harmony. Situated directly on the famous, white sand beaches of Michamvi, our spacious retreat awaits you and your travel companions.
The ground floor has one beach suite and two garden rooms along with the spacious open plan kitchen, large dining and lounge areas and a large beach view cement deck that stretches the entire length of the ground floor, with large comfortable lounge and swing bed to sway and take in the views.
The first floor has a further sea view suite and the only twin room in the villa, along with a reading/games knook and the amazing wooden deck running the length of the 1st floor (directly above the deck below).
Let the villa’s highly trained and friendly staff take care of you. A chef, housekeeper, gardener, watchmen, as well as very talented butler (your private concierge) take care of your needs and are on hand to help make your visit unforgettable. Hand-tailored luxury meets relaxed, island warmth in a stunning fusion of East and West.
Wake up to the gentle music of the waves, slip into a lush cotton robe, and join your companions for a complimentary pot of fresh-brewed coffee or tea either pool side in your own private outside dining/ lounge area or in any one of your many leisure areas, as you watch the sun climb into the wide African sky. The days are long, slow and delicious at Upendo.
The villa’s enormous, light-filled master bedroom, Kaama is the ultimate romantic hideaway. Private floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto a breathtaking sea view balcony. Relax in the oversized, elevated bed, with fine linens, ceiling fan, soft lighting and bedside tables all inside a custom-made mosquito net. Kindle the magic with Kaama’s two-person rain shower, or indulge yourself by soaking in the hand-sculpted plunge tub.
Everything from the window shutters to the cool white ceiling has been thoughtfully designed to allow in soft light and cooling sea breezes, so you can enjoy Kaama’s luxurious privacy any time of day or night.
Step out of the sun and into Raaga—the villa’s spacious and sumptuous second bedroom. You can watch the window curtains dance in the breeze as you rest in the oversized, elevated bed with fine linens, ceiling fan, soft lighting and bedside tables all inside a custom-made mosquito net. Exposed wood beam ceilings, airy white walls and stylish, colorful accents create a soothing and comfortable retreat.
Ideally situated and custom designed to stay cool in the heat of the day, Raaga is your private haven in paradise.
Open the door to Ishtaa, and enter your own private sanctuary. The spacious room, exposed wood beam ceiling and subtle accents define island elegance. Soak in the sea air as you rest on the oversized, elevated bed with fine linens, ceiling fan, soft lighting and bedside tables all inside a custom-made mosquito net.
Ishtaa’s custom design ensures that you will enjoy a cooling breeze and gentle light all day long. Step into love, and let us take care of the rest.
