Arrival in Mombasa, Kenya


Upon arrival in Mombasa, Sarova Whitesands Hotel, a beautiful seaside resort located on the pristine Indian Ocean beach in Mombasa, has tailor-made accommodations, tour packages, and exciting adventures for a memorable holiday.

For individuals, Sarova Whitesands is the escape from stress you need. Multiple swimming pools, a serene green environment that is well-tended pristine waters of the Indian Ocean, and an ideal spot to lie down and enjoy the cool breeze while reading that novel you have always wanted to read.

Water-based activities like snorkeling near the reef just a few meters from the beachfront of Sarova Whitesands is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Families will find the extra attention paid to children to allow parents time and space to relax, particularly delightful. Large swimming pools with water slides are manned by lifeguards to delight children. Parents can also sign up for their children to join other children to partake in various activities within the hotel under the guidance of a Sarova Whitesands Hotel-trained staff.

Groups would find swimming with fishes in the shallow part ( less than 2 feet) in the middle of the Indian Ocean, an experience of a lifetime.

This rare phenomenon, which is only found along the coast of Sarova Whitesands Hotel in Mombasa, presents the opportunity for anyone to walk in the middle of the Indian Ocean without life vests or any kind of support.

Non-swimmers can also experience the beauty of snorkeling without getting wet. The customized glass floor boats used by the hotel's marine unit allow passengers onboard to view colourful fishes and other sea creatures below without leaving the boat.


With the Ethiopian and Sarova partnership, Ghanaian travellers can now get to experience other cultures and engage in exciting activities within the continent.
