The initial plan was to stay there for three days and two nights but we ended up spending five nights and it was the best five days! Was a perfect way to end 2014 and start 2015. One word i can used to describe Spice of the Coast is 'Paradise'. This place felt like heaven on earth; first off the... More

We spent 12 days at Spice of the coast. It's a little piece of heaven, peaceful and intimate. Thom and his wife are the best! They treated us as part of their family. They show us where to go, and suggest the best place to see in Diani. Cottages are huge, and very comfortable. Every morning monkeys came close to... More

the place is beautiful from the moment you drive through the gates down to interior of the rooms. the hosts make it feel like home away from home. they go above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay with them, as well as during your time in kenya.

It was like being home away from home with really really really cool parents. The owners Thomas and Wanjiru were every bit welcoming and their Nephew Phillip, we all fell... More

Had an amazing weekend here recently. The cottages were beautifully decorated and well serviced. Tom and Wanjiru, who own the place, were very warm and welcoming and made our stay a perfect getaway. Would highly recommend this hideaway and we will definitely go back.

We stayed at Spice of the Coast for 10 days and all I can say is, that it really made our vacation in Kenya. First we weren't sure because the cottages where not directly located at the beach front but soon after we arrived, we where convinced that we made the right choice. Each single cottage is beautifully decorated and... More

If your looking for a quiet secluded B & B in the Diani Beach area, away from all the typical style beach hotels, this is a hidden treasure!. We booked 3 nights and ended up staying for a week. You have your own private exquisively decorated cottage. Every detail has been thought of and supplied for your comfort. We had... More
