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 initiative known as the Kenyan Riviera.

A haven for celebrities 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 location 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 facilities 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 activities 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 celebration 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 celebration adds to the celebration 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.
