Incredible service in the most beautiful setting. We felt at home and relaxed in the Kenyaways quirky hotel. The design is original and creative, using fabrics and styles of Kenya to create a rustic and well finished space. A place to reflect and feel at peace. Downstairs there is a gentle sporting buzz and an incredibly friendly vibe. A truly... More

As a group of 4 siblings all around 70 returning to Diani we found Kenyaways the perfect place to relive memories of the '50s and '60s. Certainly value for money. When we were there there was a Kenya-wide power outage but - hey, candlelight is delightful! The staff were friendly and efficient. The rooms kept spotless. We were in Rebel,... More

I stayed at Kenyaways in February 2014 for the second time. I have to say it was one of the best vacation spots I have been to.

We've visited Diani Beach quite a few times over the past few years and stayed in a few different places but non of them compare to Kenyaways. For the price that we paid we really couldn't ask for anything more, we will definitely be going back there if we get the chance. We hate big hotels and always try to... More
