Waterlovers was the best place I'd stayed among so many places. The location, staff, services provides did really exceed my expectations. The young management team, the lovely couple, Laura & Dave, gave the maximum attention and support during the whole time we stayed there. The owners, Valentina&Ricardo, so helpful in arranging our transfers any anything that we'd need. They really... More

We had 4 nights at water lovers after a 5 day safari, it was wonderful, so relaxing and peaceful. All the staff could not do enough for us even down to moving the subbed in and out of the sun, always with a smile on their faces. Peter celebrated his 70th birthday while there and the staff made it one... More

The passion of the owners for the blue waters of Diani, led them to set up their life on its shore. They are artists of their life and of this beautiful family boutique hotel for us, lucky guests ! Their art of hosting is lovely ! We have such a reward from life, being here just to enjoy the very... More

We stayed at WaterLovers for a long weekend break from Nairobi and it was everything we wanted. Really relaxed atmosphere, lovely staff, beautiful hotel, great location, delicious food (esp. fish), and a perfect piña colada. A very short kayak ride to the sandbar is a must-do for snorkelling, swimming and beautiful views. We didn't want to leave and we are... More

Recently returned from a wonderfully relaxing 7 night stay after our safari and it proved to be the perfect choice. We had flown by light aircraft from the Masai Mara to Ukunda and it was only approx 10-15 mins transfer to Waterlovers so very easy to get to. The owners Valentina and Ricardo have created this beautiful property from scratch... More

We stayed at Waterlovers for 3 nights on our honeymoon. This isn't a busy beach resort with just 8 cottages and a relaxed vibe. The design is very cool - lots of wood and blue woven linens. We liked the way there were different places to hang out on the beach and around the pool. Each cottage is themed -... More

Waterlovers is a fabulous hotel so far away from the crowds of the huge beach resorts you can find on Diani beach. It is a unique place where where beach loungers or bar stools are a piece of art. I have never stayed in a hotel where so much attention has been put to detail. From the beautiful carved furnitures... More

Waterlovers is a well designed and decorated small resorted located right on the beach. I really enjoyed the natural woods they used throughout the property and small personal touches you can find everywhere, such as a few flowers in the foot-baths to get the beach sand off before you walk into your room. The staff are very polite and attentive... More

My husband and I decided to start our honeymoon in Diani in this amazing, small resort owned and managed by Valentina and Riccardo, a lovely Italian couple, very helpful and always checking on the guests. The fact that it is a small resort with only 8 cottages means that guests also enjoy more personalized attention. We stayed there for four... More
