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

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

I have stayed at Galu many times over the years and each time has been an amazing retreat from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. The cottages and apartments are stunning, with the swahili chic design, African artifacts, and ocean views making Galu my first choice whenever I want to relax for a few days. Over the years I have... More

Great place to stay, that allows privacy and that homely feel. I loved the individual attention given by the staff there, as well as the owners. Definitely the place to stay when in Diani. We spent four days there, and loved every moment.
