This was my second trip to Villa Kalista in less than a year. I spent 4 days there with a group of friends. We were picked up at the Mombasa airport and shuttled to Diani. The car was clean and air-conditioned but the highlight was the VIP pass which allowed us to skip the long lines at the ferry. When... More

Excellent facility offering a refresher from the traditional Diani hotels. Very private offering a relaxing atmosphere. The villas are exceptionally clean with a team of staff members catering to all your needs. Friendly for both families and young single/couple travellers. Food is amazing, the chef can make whatever you want. Would definitely visit again. Met the owner during our stay,... More

After a much needed break Villa Kalista was indeed just the ticket! I felt so pampered and looked after by the wonderful staff that I really did not want to leave. There actually is nothing that I can fault.....really there isn't! Food was fantastic, the view was mind blowing (we were there whilst there was a full moon....breath taking!) equally... More

Villa Kalista is simply paradise. The moment you get there, you are treated like royalty. One of the best things about this paradise, is as soon as you step in the Villa you make it your home. The staff are excellent, and service is out of this world. You don't need to get up from the sunbed, your favourite cocktail... More

Wow - Villa Kalista is Heaven on Earth. This place is awsome, it's like Home from Home. We were a group of 34 for a family reunion. The villas are tastefully decorated with luxurious fixtures and fittings. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the master ensuite is amazing. View from the room is superb. Faiza and her staff did a... More
