I left Bahari Dhow villas a week ago and I was so sad because I want to go back. The villas are clean, spacious and each bedroom has air conditioning. The three swimming pools are big, beautiful and well designed. The beachfront brings so much nostalgia. It was welcoming and together with the music that played, we were reminded of... More

I stayed at Bahari Dhow with a few friends for two nights. In many ways I enjoyed my stay. I think what i liked most was the fat that I could swim in the middle of the night. Most establishments of this kind would restrict the use of a pool. The villas are very specious. A little too specious for... More

Touchdown and I just couldn't wait to sink my feet on the sand, sun was making me nauseous and baggage in hand I couldn't care less! This haven of hope after an excruciating 10hour drive was as welcoming as ever. Enough with the useless banter...Bahari Dhow features some beautiful villas jutting slightly into the shoreline but enough to not be... More

Bahari Dhow is the best place to be in Diani. Went with 13 pals and the villa were extremely spacious and very clean even with our wildness. Must go for friends,couples or family. Security top notch, the beach is private and breath taking. Services at the sportbar are also bery good. Pools too clean. 3 of them.

My experience at Bahari dhow was very nice. We were a group of four and we liked the fact that we could do our own cookery. The pools were well lite even in the night. The beach front was fantastic and only a few meters away from our villa. The house keeper was prompt and very cooperative. The beach bar... More

Many thanks to Richard, Janet and Mohammad for all their hard work on our behalf. The grounds... More
