Indian Ocean Beach Resort
The Indian Ocean Beach Resort was opened in 1992. It is an exclusive, luxury resort built on the site of a 16th century mosque. The Kenyan coast was once ruled by the rich Sultans of Zanzibar, hence the architecture is Arabic and a lot of antics from the Sultans Palace have been used as décor.The main reception has an antique “Chandelier” given to the Sultan by British traders for landing rights.
