We have been there for two weeks this summer with our two daughters, who enjoyed the hotel and its surroundings a lot. This was really a good election. Well decorated, with an unbelievable location right on the sand of the beach. Perfect for those looking for a place to practice kite, surf, paddle surf or just trying to stay lying... More

Our family spent a week at Kenyaways and had an absolutely perfect stay. Our room (Rebel-which has a super sea view) accommodated the four of us just fine and was furnished very comfortably and had a full ensuite bathroom. It's a boutique hotel that has a surfer-come-hippie décor that seems to relieve you instantly of all your stress. It's very... More

We spent a week here and fell in love with the white sands and warm sea. The service was fantastic with delicious food and drinks from the bar which we either enjoyed in the restaurant or on our sun beds looking out to sea. Everyone was incredibly friendly, our room was gorgeous with a secure safe and always clean and... More

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.
