Kalista villas were one of the most amazing accommodations I have been too. A group of 12 and everyone had the exact same opinion of this place It was 7 star service. And the views are absolutely heavenly. The staff are just amazing. I have never had a 4 course dinner set up for me at 4am after a night... More

Kalista Villa is a beautiful jewel hidden in the South coast of Mombasa. The service was great from the time we arrived. Veronica the manager was always available to take care of all the details. The food was awesome and everyone there was extremely helpful. Thank you Veronica for making this a memorable experience.

The short rough road drive to Kalista villas can get you wondering how the place looks like if it is your first visit, until you arrive at the all white beach front paradise! It is very beautiful. The staff are very friendly and will show genuine concern for your comfort. The villas are simply magnificent! I recommend them to families,... More

The staff are very helpful, the villas are spacious and clean while the meals are really great kudos to the chef! My wife & kids had a wonderful time and would recommend it to anyone visiting diani to try this jewel tucked near kinondo kaya forest. Again great place, excellent service and can't wait to go back!

6 months later and thinking of our time at Villa kalista still makes me smile. Exceeded our expectations both on beauty of the villas and quality of service. Not a hotel...a home away from home! Be back before the year is out.

It's a different experience from a hotel, since you have a whole house to yourself, but thats what makes it so special. The food was really good. The hostess very kind. Meal times aren't fixed. Having a personal butler and chef is a bit odd/surreal, but hey...when in Kalista...Would recommend this hotel to family holiday. Toddlers may struggle with the... More

Small, private, lovely retreat. Villas are spacious, modern, clean with refined decor. Super comfortable. Gorgeous 25 meter pool. Kind and attentive staff. Copious amounts of delicious fresh seafood prepared by personal chef. Fariza is warm and wonderful and helped us with all our requests. Highly highly recommended.

We loved Villa Kalista so much, we went there twice last year. What's there not to love? A quite secluded beach, beautiful modern villas, the best pancakes in the world, a really delicious seafood biriyani... with all that said, I would go back to Kalista even if it was for this one thing: Lucky, he's the best dog in the...

We had the time of our lives, from the dedicated service of our villa, to the gourmet meals. The beautiful views of the ocean from the comfort of your living space, to the spacious rooms and lounges. No wonder we have scheduled it to be our annual vacation spot! Thanks Roni and Faizal
