And what an amazing place it is!!! Kenia is beautifull country with very friendly people. And then there is Kenyaways. Lindsey created a special place in Diani. Ultra realaxing vibe..Although...

This was my first time staying at The Kenyaway Kite Village, and I must say I found a true gem on the Kenya coast! The price is more than right for what you get! The staff was very friendly both at the hotel and the watersports centre. Food was great, and the rooms are very nice and uniquely decorated. I... More

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

I've stayed in Kenyaways a few times over the last 5 years and every time it gets even better. I was there a few weeks ago and the staff were great, rooms lovely.

We stayed at Kenyaways for 5 days/4 nights and were thoroughly disappointed by the lack of Internet and electricity! We only had Internet access for 1/5 days (and their website touts wifi access), and the hotel management refused to fix the issue in a timely manner or reimburse us to use the Internet at the next door hotel, which charged...
