The Driftwood has been operating for over 30 years and is a favorite of upcountry Kenya residents. Many Malindi residents have made the Driftwood their club, allowing them use of the hotel facilities. This creates a fantastic atmosphere, giving overseas visitors a chance to mingle with locals, many who are second or third generation Kenyan. The Club is small and privately owned and is able to live by its logo; Informality at its Best. The Driftwood is ideal for family holidays, many whom return year after year
