Affordable Luxury

Newly opened in 2018, Kivulini translates to “in the shade “ which is a hint of the beautiful tropical gardens and trees found at Kivulini.


Located in Utende near the East coast of Mafia and in the Marine Park it is not on the beach but they do provide a free shuttle service to the beach (only 3 mins drive away) and Mafia Island Diving scuba base, as well as free use of bicycles.
