Surprised my friend with a birthday trip to Diani this past weekend, and it was totally worth it. Communicating with the sales rep was quick and easy, making the booking process stress free. Arriving at the resort you're hit by the grandeur of the architecture and finer decor details, this was also carried through into the bedroom, which was simply... More

Quite a memorable experience I had with my spouse. Very welcoming staff who showed genuine concern for our comfort. The infinity pools are very inviting and cleanliness all over the hotel is tops. The food is great and my favorite part was the poolside dinner with the band. I would definitely come back again.

I needed the rest after a crazy week. I loved this place and so did our business partners. I think we sealed a great deal of business. The peace, the food, the rooms and the people....full experience was unmatched.

My wife and I were staying in a neighbouring property and visited Swahili Beach resort for one afternoon and evening. Swimming in the pools and relaxing with an ice cool beer from the bar was absolutely wonderful. Food from the beach bar in the evening was good; service good and prices reasonable.

This was the perfect place to end our honeymoon! The hotel is truly beautiful, the staff is kind and attentive and you really feel that it is all for your sake. We spent 6 nights there - and if I could I would have stayed longer. In fact, we didn't leave the hotel. All we needed was right there!

First of all, I want to say that what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get!!!! Swahili Beach is breathtakingly beautiful with the cascading pools and the white sand beaches. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Went to look at a twin room and I must say the twin beds are too small so if you... More

The architecture is amazing and attention to detail is quite evident. There is so much good taste in the overall premises that you feel so pampered. The pool area is absolutely breathtaking and the food also was excellent. Was there only for the day and was feeling very sorry that I could not be there for my stay.
