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.

We were there with our family and despite the high level of the property, my kids were made to feel totally welcome. It didnt matter what noise the they made in the pool or where they ran, the staff just looked on with a smile, offering help wherever they thought we might need it. The attention to detail and the...

We are just back from a most pleasant long weekend at the Almanara Boutique Hotel & Luxury Villas on the Kenyan coast south of Mombasa. The 5 room hotel is right on the beach although secluded from the prying eyes of beach wanderers by wafting palm trees and other vegitation, but with tempting glimses of the turquoise sea beyond.
