Diani Blue, is by far the most relaxed and comfortable hotel on Diani Beach. My family and I have been going to Diani Beach for a considerable amount of time and our return visits to Diani Blue is testament to its success. All the staff are exemplary, who are very well trained and work so hard. The house staff are... More

Diani Blue is a great hotel on shore of diani beach. It is in a stunning location and offers so much to the guests with a swimming pool and activities such as snorkeling, which they can organize for you. All the rooms look out on to the swimming pool area which in itself is a small paradise. The edge restaurant... More

What a great hotel. We stayed there as a family plus boyfriends and girlfriends for about three weeks and none of us had a bad thing to say about it. We were looked after so well by Peter, Stanley, Willy, the two Lawrences, the house-staff and Ernest (who needs a special mention for his powers of persuasion. Who can say... More

Total disappointment ! My husband and a friend went to the Diani Blue, for reservations on lunch and the spa, as he made the arrangements asking the manager if we could use the facilities (swimming pool) also he replied yes! As we got their on Christmas day, we went to sit in the corner under a tree, the waiter came... More

I am so sorry that you had such a negative experience at The Blue, especially on Christmas day. We have used your comments as the basis for a staff training session and hope that some good will come out of this. The swimming pool policy is that it is only for in house residents and your mention of a sign... More

My partner and I spent four nights here just before Christmas. The resort is quite exclusive with just a few rooms of high quality. The site has immediate access to Diani beach, which has to be one of the finest in the world. Our room was spotless and very well serviced. Breakfast was a casual affair, with a wide range... More

This is a truly stunning place. Right on beautiful Diani Beach which is currently very empty. Fantastic seafood, cooked simply and perfectly and very well priced. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean with wifi, but blissfully no TV's or telephones. The staff are delightful; discrete and friendly without being over familiar which is a hard balance. A huge bonus... More

I had two delicious meals at this unique hotel. The food and wine was literally some of the best I have ever had. As for the views, you can't beat it.

Blue is a small boutique hotel and we held a 50th party and reception there in July 15. In fact we hired the whole hotel. Rooms are lovely, food is consistently good, staff and management were first class and what a stunning view of the beach.
