Kenyaways is a very relaxing spot right on the georgeous beach of Diani. The people staying here are all very easy going and friendly and so is the staff. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and decorated nicely. Beach towles are also provided. The food offered in the retaurant was good and so was the massage we booked. All in... More

Arrived here looking for a room, but the front office was closed and the reception lower down had no one there. The bar man said 'come back tomorrow'. Then a British guy who acted like he owned the place took one look at me, a university professor, and my colleague, from the national museums of Kenya and thought the face... More

This place is perfect for those on a budget. The emphasis is on affordable accommodation for those wanting to participate in water sports. The rooms a simple but comfortable (a fan is provided, but no air con). There is a chilled out bar on the beach and plenty of place for lounging. The food is good and well priced. The... More

Love staying here, got such a nice vibe and the rooms are so nice. Its beach is beautiful and the rooms which look right out onto it are very pretty. Food is great too, with a cracking cocktail hour. Only thing that could have been better was that we went in peak kiting season and at some points it was... More

Hello! Thanks so much for the review, it is well appreciated! We have taken your comments into consideration…Don't worry the kite surfers have strict lessons in rights of way and they usually are under control! So far there has been no accidents but as a swimmer it must be a bit worrying seeing them fly by so close! The wind... More

I booked a three week stay for myself (kitesurfer) and my wife (not). We had a fabulous time at this quirky and fun B&B. Kenyaways is in a relatively quiet spot on the Diani beach with enough beachfront to launch and land pretty much all the time. If you like kitesurfing then this is a great place to come, informal...

Hello! We would like to thank you for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed your long stay here with us. I will certainly put forward your comments to the Madafoos restaurant and see to some improvement. Over the busy festive season it is very hard to get reliable supplies in Diani so this is probably the reason. It... More

The rooms are rundown but still worth your time. They clean daily... Servers at the restaurant/bar can sharpen up a bit on their skills and service. Don't try the nachos, they lack flavor. The chicken/pine nut/basil sandwich was great tho! The complimentary breakfast needs a little spice Nevertheless,I would come back!

Great place and not expensive, rooms are lovely and come with a floor fan for when its a bit hot and humid. The bar looks out over the stunning beach and the food and drink is well priced and good quality. Highly recommended.
