Clutch recommendation. Hey one of the rooms in the main building overlooking the ocean. Downstairs rooms are noisy at night, and majority of rooms well back from the ocean. Food was underwhelming, with many requests reconsidered after, we are out. Even out of bottled water at one point. Also our tab was inflated. Suggest blue marlin next door for meals.

Hi, I am writing most importantly to thank you for taking your time to give us a review for other travellers. We are glad you enjoyed the location and kite spot. Being in such an amazing spot also has its drawbacks however, with suppliers and for staff. It is remote for deliveries to be made on time and for staff... More

just go, nice location, (beach and close from Okunda city center : 10 minutes by Matatus), nice people, very good service, small restaurant for light lunch or diner, unless many restaurants around, and by far the best location for kite surfing in Diani

I had the pleasure of staying at Kenyaways for four days with a pal recently. My time there was delightful being looked after by first rate staff directed by the Kennaway family. The food was of excellent quality and the whole place is a Hidden Gem ! It's situated on the shoreline and the beach is exquisite as is the... More

I had anticipated to stay at Kenyaways for two nights at most while I scouted out better places to stay, but this tucked away gem has ensnared my heart. While the place itself is not showy or over the top, the service has been excellent. Everyone has gone out of their way to make me and my boyfriend comfortable. Any... More

Wonderful chilled holiday at the best stretch of beach on the Diani coastline. Second stay at Kenaways, great staff, accommodating and always smiling. Excellent breakfast included, plus great lunch & dinner selections with full service bar. They are also home to H20 sports, where you can receive great water sport instruction, from kite surfing to paddle boards. If your looking... More

A friend and I spent a night in Diani amidst a week of travelling around Kenya. Staying at Kenyaways was the most relaxing 24 hours we had all week! Idyllic setting, very friendly staff, clean and very comfortable rooms with all the amenities we could possibly wish for. Staff and management went out of their way to make sure we... More

Kenyaways has the great appeal of a chilled small B & B, it is small and intimate with amazing staff. We visited Kenyaways with 6 friends and had a great time. The lunch and dinner menus are impeccable with the crab salad being A MUST. The vibe in the hotel is very casual, relaxed and accommodating; child friendly without feeling... More

We love staying at kenyaways on Galu beach, Kenya. The hotel is small, cool, casual and relaxed, we like the front rooms, but I understand the back room are cool and quiet and have the pool near by. The staff are friendly. Great long beaches, not as many beach hawkers. Amazing to walk beach early morning with sun rising and... More
