When I first landed in Kenya, I knew this was going to be my home, a sixth sense, karma? My dream had always been to build a hotel. So many of us have felt the call of Africa, but to realize my dream as a single European woman in Kenya it has been an amazing adventure.On the way I met a Man on Diani beach and together we completed Sonrisa, our home.Come have a “Dawa” with me and share our adventures and experiences of this amazing journey.
Jambo! After being raised in the African bush, hunting walking and fishing, raising and breeding Ostriches and other wildlife, operating safaris in Eastern central and Southern Africa, building camps, I finally put root, on one of most beautiful beaches on the Eastern African coast. With a Girl I met on that beach and together we live at, and run Sonrisa as an extension of our home.
We Invite you to Hotel Sonrisa, with only eight rooms, its personal, private and has a lovely beautiful karma about it. So be our guests, come take our dogs for a walk on the beach, or go on Safari, and share our beautiful home. Welcome! Karibuni!
