“Maji” is the Swahili word for water; when I reflect on our time spent at the Maji Beach Boutique Hotel, the word summons so many vibrant and happy memories… water the giver of life, revitalization, immersing in joy, laughter, good food, comforts, simply returning to place you will come to call your home away from home. My love affair with... More

My husband and myself stayed for 2 nights. We have stayed in many 'Big Hotels' before but just discovered a heaven in boutique hotel like Diani. Excellent service, food,prompt staff, free choice of meal time and place, space in rooms, perfect pool and private beach.

Went there as part of my honeymoon trip. Right from the welcome to the speedy relaxed check in my husband and I felt like VIPs. The manager Stefano was awesome. He and his staff were extremely friendly and helpful. This place is a MUST visit, I'm definitely going back one day.

We attended a wedding at The Maji and were very pleased by the level of professionalism of the staff but also beauty of the hotel! What a beautiful place to have a small private wedding but also quiet relaxed weekend away from busy Nairobi! Diani has pristine beaches and The Maji is just on one of them!For people who prefer...

From the eclectic Swahili interior decor, to golden sunrises over the turquoise Indian ocean lapping the fine white beach sand, every moment at The Maji is special. A private home turned into a 15 roomed boutique hotel, it has the feeling of being in your own private space. Stephan, the young German co-owner and manager, is terrific and takes the... More

We stayed at the Maji for the second time after its opening last year, and again, we were not disappointed. The tastefully furnished suites, the beautiful garden and the huge pool combined with the outstanding service exceeded our expectations and made our stay, once again, an unforgettable experience. The place looked as if had only just opened and we felt... More

We did not overnight in the Hotel but used their bar and restaurant for a Friday evening get-together for expats who live in Diani. They serve a very tasty Dawa (Kenyan cocktail), the beers were cold and served with a smile. They have quite a big menu for a boutique hotel and we were all very pleased with our meals.... More
