5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

We spent one week in a newly opened hotel on Diani beach in the beginning of January 2012. The hotel has very stilish and spacious facilities and big and comfortable rooms. We had two rooms as we needed a separate room for the child.

The staff was very helpful, attentive and friendly. The food in the restaurants (especially in the a la carte restaurant on the beach) was absolutely perfect and we it was not a problem to order other positions not listed in the menu. One day the chief cook smoked a fish that we catched in the morning - it was very tasteful and totally free for us!

During this week we hardly seen any moskitos, also because the hotel staff takes care of swithing on fumigators and putting moskito nets over the bed (the latter even not necessary, but very romantic).

The hotel is located near to some big supermarkets and craft shops on Diani beach, but unfortunately on this piece of the beach the see is not accessible for swimming.

We can only recommend choosing this hotel and must notice that the 5-stars-level is more than comparable with any European resorts.

They have just opened the place. The rooms are spacious and done with a personal touch! Really unlike other hotels or resorts!!
The pool is endless and my son just could not get enough of it!
The most amazing and breathtacking view i have seen. when at the reception one sees the pool that keeps on droping to different levels and it seems like it goes on to become one with the sea!!
Really a great place that am looking forward to going back to!!!

Room Tip: All rooms have an amazing view and really large balkon. The suits are to die for!!! Amazing
