We have recently returned from six nights at Almanara and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The villa was perfect and the team looking after us - Dorcas, Boni and Emily - were delightful. Gemma and Jackie do a great job supervising everything and are very attentive without ever being in the way. Great food; a wonderful beach; lovely caring... More

We just returned from a glorious four days at Almanara and are already planning our next trip. Gorgeous gardens, bath-water warm pool, striking yet homey villas, stunning beach but most importantly, a wonderful group of people. The care and commitment of the Almanara team is tremendous - Jackie is so warm and welcoming it felt like seeing an old friend... More

Just returned from holiday after doing a week on Safari and then spent a week of luxury and tranquillity. The Villas are fabulous, the Staff are amazing. Dorcus, Mordie and Cathy were our staff and nothing was too much trouble. We could eat what we liked when we liked, everything was done for us. The flowers in the bathroom and... More

If you want to avoid crowds of people. If you want to relax despite travelling with a family. If you want to have a feeling that your money is well spent - this is the right place! Ideally located on Diani Beach among private residences. With protected, quiet beach without beach boys (well, almost without them). Great concept - each... More

Outstanding luxury villas, complete with your own sun deck on the spectacular south coast. The food was excellent and staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful at all times - nothing was to much trouble for them. We come back. Amazing atmosphere. Highly recommended!!!

We, a family of 3, visited Almanara Luxury Villas in February and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We can only compliment the concept of this resort – it is designed to make you feel at home in “your own spacious villa”. The garden is beautiful and well kept – and there is a general attention to detail throughout Almanara... More

We stayed at Alamanara from the 9th January for 7 nights and I don't know why it has taken me so long to write a review for such a fantastic place; I think it has just taken me so long to settle back into normal life after a week of being spoilt so very much! We stayed in the villa... More

Almanara surpassed my expectations by far! The accomodation and service we're excellent. The staff we're on hand to tend to my every need. The beach area was beautifully decorated. It felt like pure heaven from the moment the Almanara van picked us up from the airport till we we're dropped back to the airport. A big thank you goes to... More
