We visited Diani Sea Lodge in September for our honeymoon. We were also greeted like regular guests. There were no special touches, even in the welcome which was disappointing. Our room was spacious and cool and was cleaned daily. We had a 4 poster bed with mosquito nets which made all the difference. We had a large bathroom and a... More

After an ex-tenuous and torturous trip back from the beautiful country that is Kenya, I have found myself reaching for the laptop prior to a long deserved sleep to comprise what both my new wife and I had endured on our Honeymoon, at the Diani sea Lodge. On arrival from a remembered and fantastic four day safari, my wife and... More

We arrived at the hotel at 10.30pm after a 10 hour delay at Addis Ababa airport. We were offered a welcome drink and told a late meal had been kept for us. We decided it was too late to eat so were shown to our room. The bedroom and bathroom were lovely and clean unlike a previous review that had... More

We come and stayed here before and after our safari trip. The rooms were nice as we were in a separate lodge, but we had a rat that lived outside the door in a drainage ditch. On your walk around there are monkeys all over being cheeky. But if your on the beach keep your stuff out of the site... More

They took my mobile phone. It was found in my room and they said they were sending it back. I sent a courier and they didn't give it to the courier person. My phone was never seen again. Disappointed.
