Arrived after trying journey from Dublin, Ireland. Met in the lobby by Gillie & the reception crew & all aches were forgotten. Our fabulous villa had a sea view from each of its three floors. The onsite restaurant provided great food & wine. They were happy to prepare any meal we asked even if not on the menu. Really enjoyed... More

We were here with a group of nearly 20 family friends and had 4 villas and had a super time. I staff were very friendly and the resort worked well for us as villas were big enough to gather in and also enjoy meals together. We hired a local cook who made breakfast and helped wth the dinner on some... More

We recently stayed at Lantana in the penthouse suite which was absolutely amazing! As you walk into the suite, your breath is literally taken away by the unbelievable views out over the ocean to the right and to the left, the view stretches all the way to the shimba hills! Just magic! We were travelling with our daughter who is... More

We stayed at Lantana for a friends birthday party in a three bedroom villa which was styled in swahili style & amazingly spacious ! It was well equipped which was slightly wasted on us as we only boiled the kettle for tea/coffee in the morning ! The bathroom & bedroom were really big & the photos on the website don't... More

This is NOT in any way a 5* hotel. The villa we were shown to was a disaster - dirty floors, dusty and stained furniture and rusty kitchen equipment. The DVD player was covered with grimy film, same with the shelf it was standing on. Picked up the phone to call reception to ask for another room (ANY room -... More

Bathrooms were clean, had nice shower and plenty of space to move while your kid is around you to play with water.Kitchens had all... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the planet!! Lantana Galu - where does one begin. Such a relaxed feel to it from the moment you walk in. The staff are extremely efficient despite their warm, friendly attitude which adds to making you feel completely at home. Beautiful rooms with views. I had the penthouse -... More

Lantana is nestled on a small cove, with a ruined fort on one side and a natural spit on the other, on the most beautiful part of Diani beach. Further along the coast past the busier end of the beach with all large hotels. White sand that you can hardly look at during the night of the day's sun. Protected... More

We stayed in Villa 5 at Galu which is a three bedroom and palatial size. The kitchen is fully equipped but you are just 30 m from the pool / restaurant in case you can't muster the energy to cook. The staff is courteous and the surrounding...well just beautiful! If I had the free capital I would buy one (units... More
