Inviting contemporary architecture with colour coordinated African decoration, immersive pools, and tropical greenery paints a torrid little paradise directly on the beachside. Tamala's younger sister gives a relaxing atmosphere and offers everything right where you need it.

When you walk into reception, you will be welcomed with the warm hospitality of the resort's staff, which will provide you with all needed information and make sure you settle in comfortably.

The reception sitting area is a chapter of its own to describe. Comfortable sofas, bamboo chair sets, swinging egg chairs placed carefully throughout the big, light hall will make your preferred sitting choice quite hard. Adding to that are wood-carved statues, colourful paintings, pleated baskets and wall decoration in earth tones.

Walkthrough to your room will already make you fall in love with the place. White units, covered with grass-decorated roofs, surround the main area, which is delicately combined of a walking path, garden and pool all along the way to the bar and beach area.

Rooms are assorted on the ground and first floors, allowing the place to breathe and never feel overcrowding. Ground floor rooms have private access to the pool, and all have a private terrace or balcony with comfortable sunbeds where you will enjoy relaxing views of the garden, pool or sea.

You can choose from three types of accommodation; Premium Suite Garden View, Premium Pool Swim-Up Suite and Premium Ocean View Villa. Rooms exude modern and clean elegance combined with African furnishings. Amenities available in all rooms are A/C, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV, digital TV service, safety deposit box, telephone, walk-in shower, double-size bed with mosquito net, digital door entry, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, refrigerator, tea & coffee facilities and combination of 2 and 3 pin wall sockets to cross another worry off the list. If you go for Ocean View Villa, you will enjoy a bigger space with a kitchen, workspace, minibar and of course, an ocean view.

Open bar area surrounded by pools and separated decks with sunbeds provides a serene relaxation with a delicate selection of lounge music. African outside furnishings again adds a special note to the contemporary architecture of the place, with bamboo sets, swinging chairs and elegant African patterns.

A wide view of the private beach and seaside area will make you want to spend eternity in this little piece of paradise. Everything, right where you need it, through the day and in the night. Mesmerizing lights marking the paths and glamorous LED lights glowing up the pools will turn the elegant princess of the day into the enchanting lady of the night time.

All rooms have breakfast included, but you can also decide on all-inclusive offers. All food is currently served at the main restaurant in Tamala Beach Resort which is accessible through the path at the back garden.

Kalimba's guests can also enjoy the facilities Tamala has to offer, such as the beach lounge, main restaurant, Wellness Spa and spacious and fully equipped gym. You will also enjoy yoga, fitness classes, aqua aerobics, and many more activities scheduled on the blackboard next to the beach restaurant.

This adult-only hotel is a perfect spot for couples who enjoy a bit of extra luxury, friends or solo travellers who enjoy their intimacy. Kalimba is also a great choice for holding business meetings, conferences or team buildings. The place is a perfect choice of venue to host a private event, such as a birthday celebration, wedding or any other special occasion.

Luxury, stylish surroundings, direct access to the room from the pool, private beach and magnificent night views - isn't that all you need for your perfect holidays?
