The Dhow House is a hidden gem that is sure to delight and surprise you. Nestled in the heart of Nyali, Mombasa’s upscale area lies a green oasis unlike any other. The Dhow House Nyali is a remarkable and unique space that sets it apart from any other restaurant, bar, or hotel in the area.
The beautiful gardens and mature trees set the mood for the overall experience at The Dhow House, making it a perfect place to unwind, relax, and enjoy the company of your loved ones.
With live music, karaoke, oysters and champagne, and other special offers almost every evening, there’s always something to look forward to at The Dhow House. You’ll love the interesting furniture and fittings made with wood and features from old dhows, and the feature “bar type” seating area in the garden made from a single massive piece of wood is simply breath-taking. Kids are in for a real treat at The Dhow House thanks to its vast expanse of lush greenery, inviting swimming pool, and the pièce de résistance – a whimsical treehouse that promises to capture their imaginations and set their hearts aflutter.
But it’s not just about the entertainment; the food is also tasty though we would advise you to make a reservation in advance or order some biting if you are too hungry.
