The ambiance is very serene. I loved the ocean view from the room, the pool and the fact that the beach was clean. The staff were very amazing Boniface and Emmy who were excellent in their service and the meals were very well made. I loved the dog that hang out and ran on the beach with us. The whole... More

I'm a vegetarian and while we would go out daily and pick up food we wanted, he always gave special consideration my eating habits and served up 3 amazing... More

We spent 5 days in house number three in October and had a wonderful vacation. The house itself is magnificent, tastefully decorated and comfortable. Huge balconies to admire the ocean and a fountain and bar inside the villa! Houses number 1 to 4 are right on the beachfront. They are fairly close to each other so I imagine one could... More

These are some cottages that are nicely placed and nicely built, right on the beach. I have now stayed in 3 of the houses and they are all equally well finished and comfortable. There is plenty of space for outdoor eating and sleeping and still remain private. Colobus monkeys visit daily and the pool by the grass by the beach... More

We had a wonderful holiday at Galu Sea Lodge this Easter! It is a stunning location south of Diani, on a wide white sandy beach, the best sea to swim in and out towards the reef, a great pool for children and refreshing in (short lengths), a good cook and fresh sea food at the door every morning. The management... More
