We have just come back from a fantastic Kenyan holiday with our last week at Almanara luxury villas. Here we stayed in a beautiful villa for the 6 of us and were superbly looked after by Janet and Evans. Evans cooked the most fabulous meals and welcomed us with a seafood platter which we will remember forever.... lobster, prawns, squid,... More

My family enjoyed a five night stay at this beautiful resort. The staff was amazing, especially our chef, Ann! Everything we could possible want or need was taken care of. We relaxed by the pool, enjoyed massages, walked on the beautiful beach. They always had a driver available if we wanted to go shopping. We loved our stay here!

If you are looking for a beautiful beach getaway, you will love the place. The beach is pristine with white sand and the Boutique Hotel tastefully decorated. We spent 3 nights as a group of friends and loved the service. We were offered amazing seafood platters and magnificent desserts.

Very nice stay with excellent and attentive staff. No complaints. Executive villa was very comfortable and my two kids had a great time going from the pool ro the sea and back again with some amazing, fresh seafood mixed in!

Went for lunch. The Suahili piri piri is a dream, with pilau and yogurt. Try also the seafood platter. As a dessert the passion sorbet is excellent. The service knowledgeable and friendly. Even the beach in front of the hotel is worth visiting. Overall, highly recommended!

I have never felt more pampered in my life than the week spent at Almanara. The suite was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were perfect, quite, and prestine. The food was fresh and delisous. If you are looking for a Diani beach vacation Almanara is the best you can find.
