At the end of a long journey through Africa with my boyfriend we spent almost 2 weeks at Kenyaways. A great place to relax or to practice kite surfing. We didn't, but we enjoyed the views of people who did. You can really feel it's a family run place. The owners and their lovely staff want to do anything to... More

I can't say enough good things about Kenyaways. I went on my own for a bit of a "working retreat" and managed to get hardly any work done because I was too busy laying in the sun and walking on the beach. The atmosphere at Kenyaways seems to force relaxation on you, which was definitely something I needed. Also, I... More

Had a marvellous stay at Kenyaways in Feb 2015. The location on a broad stretch of beach was perfect for kitesurfing (wind basically every day!), and friendly help was always at hand for launching and other assistance. Meals and drinks from the onsite bar and restaurant were good value and tasty (what could beat a cold beer as the sun... More

Kenyaways Beach Bed & Breakfast on Diani Beach is hard to beat when it comes to having a ' Away-From-It-All ' holiday. Basic comfort, nothing pretentious, go and be as you are. The choice of restaurants, beach bars is ample and all within walking distance. Swimming is superb. You can learn how to do kiteflying under perfect conditions. Bring along... More

Very nice place, laid back and focused on kite surfer and other sportes. The monkeys are aggresive so be ware. Apart from the beautiful beach there is a small pool in the back which my kids really enjoyed. One issue I noted was that certain guests were up all night and played music which was annoying.

Stayed here while attending a friends wedding and really loved it. The place itself is on a quieter part of Diani and a really clean and beautiful part, removed from a lot of the tourists and the merchants. It's a beautifully scenic place with comfy facilities, a really great bar/restaurant with warm, friendly staff (particularly all the waitresses who are... More

Kenyaways is directly on the beach and is a very friendly place to stay. Even if not involved in Kite surfing it was a pleasure to watch all the activity. The breakfast was a pleasure each morning. Overall a wonderful experiance.

We stayed for 5 nights at Kenyaways in the Bandit room. We came primarily for Kitesurfing. I have to say that the spot is indeed nice, and the vibe is really chilled and realxed. We would definitely recommend it for the vibe you get. However I must say that the hotel needs to invest some money in renovating the rooms.... More

Dear Katrin, Thank you for taking the time to make a review. We are thrilled you would recommend Kenyaways to other travellers and have appreciated the vibe here. However I am slightly concerned about your comments about the room as I explained to Isabelle who made the booking that the apartment was the only remaining room and that it was... More
