The Forest Dream Resort is a large forest with some cottages and rooms which makes it quite personal. We've been only a few people around so it felt even larger than it actually was, but even with more guests it is a good choice. It is a good place to spot monkeys, squirrels and other animals with all the trees... More

We have just returned to Nairobi after a blissful 5 day honeymoon break at Forest Dream. We found every aspect of the Resort absolutely spot-on. Our initial booking enquiries were responded to swiftly and efficiently, and the whole process made very easy. We were extremely excited on arrival after a long, dusty journey on the overnight train from Nairobi to... More

My girlfriend and I went to Forest Dream for my birthday in January 2013. The staff welcomed us with a huge birthday cake and even sung for us in our room! That set the tone. Although the resort was almost empty because of the off-season, the staff was very attentive and treated us wonderfully. The resort is located a bit... More

We have been living in Kenya for many years and our last visit to Forest Dream goes back to 2006. Recently we wanted to have a break at the coast, and decided to go back to Diani-beach, in particular to Forest Dream. The place has become a small paradise on the South Coast. Some 20 years ago many trees were... More

Had a great 3 nights at Forest Dream in Diani. The workers there were extremely courteous, rooms were clean, they allowed us both early check in and late check out (with no hassle at all), pool is beautiful and fun, and there are beautiful trees (and monkeys!) everywhere on the property. It's a great place to relax, and definitely well-managed.... More
