We went to this place as three couples, 3 toddlers and nannies of our kids. We had two of two room flats and a penthouse. The place was clean, well maintained, nicely furnished in Swahili style. 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

We stayed at Lantana in January and loved it. We rented a villa - highly recommended. Each villa can host up to six guests, there is lots of space and it's very well thought-out. Rooms are comfortable and all have ensuite and AC. I especially liked the rooftop bar, with stunning views of the Indian Ocean. It's the perfect place... More

As a lifelong Kenyan coast traveller I can honestly say that staying at Lantana will always be an optimum choice. Service is fantastic, quality and options of accommodation from apartments to bungalows and villas are varied, and choice of living arrangements (cook at home restaurant etc) together with quality facilities all sterling. Great across all age demographics and close enough... More

We stayed at Lantana Galu for a week the past festive season 2014/2015. My family rented a 3 bedroomed bungalow to bring in the New Year. Lantana Galu had a New Year's function which we enjoyed, maybe a little over priced. The bungalow is very spacious and has a private splash pool, which is very convenient. The facilities are very...

Glad we had free wi-fi, although slow in certain areas. I wish we had upgraded to a... More
