Lion in the Sun, A Billionaire Retreat – The Best Of The Best In Malindi

by Femme Staff

It’s a celebra7on at Billionaire Resort & Retreat and a celebra7on for all Malindi. The famous resort comprised of the Billionaire Resort with its 24 luxury apartments and the sugges7ve Lion in the Sun, a Billionaire Retreat with its 16 exquisite rooms has won a very pres7gious award…and has done so for a second year in a row.

In the recent gala award ceremony held in Dubai for the World Travel Awards (the Oscars of the travel industry) the Malindi resort has won the Best Bou7que Resort in Africa for 2023, an award it had already won in 2022, its first year aTer reopening as a hotel for the general public. The property, which is owned by celebrity global entrepreneur Flavio Briatore is managed by Babylon Hospitality that has recently incorporated a Nairobi office and team. The recent reconversion of the Billionaire Resort is yet another step of requalifying the coast of Kilifi which has taken the form of a public-private ini7a7ve known as the Kenyan Riviera. 

A haven for celebri7es and travelers worldwide the resort offers luxury apartments, rooms and suites along with a series of rich gastronomic experiences. Whilst the Lion in the Sun, a Billionaire Retreat is quietly tucked away in a secluded loca7on 400 meters from the beach and is renowned for its world class Spa and wellness program, the Billionaire Resort offers a breathtaking and unique beach with views of the Marine Park. The beach has recently seen an upgrade in facili7es and services with new Gazebos and sun beds and hosts the most popular Sunday Brunch – a must for guests of Malindi, Watamu and Kilifi alike. Guests at Billionaire Resort & Retreat are pampered by a series of ac7vi7es such as Dhow rides, visits to Marafa and so much more and is the perfect base to discover or rediscover Malindi and the whole of Kilifi.

To celebrate the win, the resort has launched a celebra7on campaign to thank the Kenyan travel trade market that has welcomed and supported the resort since its opening in late 2021 as an open resort after years of having been a private residence. The month-long campaign includes a series of perks, value adds and discounts such as upgrades and free airport transfers. This celebra7on adds to the celebra7on of the wildly popular and recently finished One Life Rally which chose the Billionaire Resort in Malindi as the venue for its closing party this year.
