This place was amazing for the price. I travel frequently and I rarely give such a high rating. It is a small resort right in the beach in a pristene area with a bar just feet from the ocean. The staff was amazing. The only thing that could be improved was the speed of the service on drinks. There is a jungle side pool and a nature walk area that was a huge bonus.

This was the perfect spot after a 10 day safari! Africa Pearl is a small resort that had just the right amount of comfort and services. Location was perfect, away from the huge resorts, but an easy walk along the beach to get to other restaurants or away from everyone. Quiet and secure, the staff was friendly and professional. Michael the manager and the grounds crew were especially helpful. Michael extended our checkout time which was extra nice and the guys brought us fresh coconuts every day!

A Pearl that Shines!
This was a 'solo' trip, there were heavy downpours of rain and it was the beginning of their off-season and yet I can say I had an amazing time... loved the ambience of the place, staff super helpful and location tops. I had no vehicle but with the constant flow of tuktuks on the road out front, travel to anywhere was never a problem. Afrika Pearl, highly recommended.

Excellent hotel right on the Indian Ocean
Beautiful little boutique hotel, right on the beach for long walks on the amazing sand beaches and dips in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Great service and food in the restaurant or at the beach bar. Pool for refreshing swims in a tropically vegetated oasis, teaming with birds and monkeys. Great place to base and explore.
