Karen Blixen Coffee House Cottages Review
If you would like to spend your honeymoon in a very relaxed and almost ‘rural’ setting away from the hustles and bustles of the city the Karen Blixen Coffee House Cottages is most likely your ultimate honeymoon destination. The cottages were owned by the famous couple Mr Baron Blixen and his wife Karen, who wrote the book and film ‘Out of Africa’.
Karen Blixen Coffee House Cottages have so much to offer. Let’s start with the beautifully laid out gardens with a veranda where you can sit and watch the birds and hibiscus flowers that add colour and bring life to this heavenly place. Each cottage is designed like a Swedo House- clean style, a high ceiling, a fireplace and beautiful mazeras stone floors. The cottages come fully equipped with showers, internet connection, mini bars and some have dressing rooms for that extra comfort. Other than the normal cottages, Karen Blixen Coffee House Cottages offer a honeymoon cottage for newlyweds. This one has a very large and spacious bedroom and sitting area together with its own unique fireplace.
Karen Blixen Coffee House Cottages also offers the Tamambo restaurant where you can satisfy your taste buds with cuisine from different communities. They have ethnic foods, an outdoor barbecue prepared during certain evenings as well as vegetarian dishes. Guests can take dinner in their rooms or by the beautiful poolside. The restaurant offers a couple of weekly specials with a very broad menu.
