“Experience of a lifetime!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

We stayed at Leopard Beach for 7 nights and were still left with a longing for more. We experienced all the different theme nights and entertainment in the evenings and each day was different and exciting. There was not enough time to experience all the wonderful activities that Leopard Beach has to offer. The food and the staff were great.The staff was friendly and always ready to wait on us.We can't wait to go back for another wonderful holiday!

There are many choices of accommodations along the coastline of Kenya from Lamu Island all the way down to the southern tip near the border of Tanzania. I thought after exploring a more adventurous schedule of visiting Kenya from Nairobi to Mt. Kenya Safari Club to Masai Mara etc. that a much needed relaxed and beach resort would be helpful and especially before the long flight home. This was definitely the perfect choice and an excellent idea which I highly recommend to all fellow travelers. The Leopard Beach Resort on the south coast that is south of Mombasa was highly recommended to me by a hotel friend and colleague and he was absolutely correct; it is the very best anywhere in this area along the coast line. The lush tropical gardens cascading down a small cliff which is above an absolutely pristine white clean beach. The accommodations are tropical comfort with all of the modern conveniences of in room amenities; there are several dinning options from Buffets to BBQ, Bistros, Pizzeria; a very lovely beach front restaurant and their most upscale Chui Grill which is Chaine des Rotisseurs rated. I highly suggest upgrading and opting for their lovely Chui Cottages; all overlooking the beautiful sea below with oversized rooms and villas; outdoor gardens and terraces just perfectly relaxing and comfortable. The GM Chris Modigell is a perfect Gentlemen/Hotelier and personally looks after his guests; he made us feel very much at home and that is true for the rest of the warm and friendly staff throughout the Resort.

Room Tip: I highly suggest the Chui Cottages; very spacious; great for being private or with families. All wi...

My sister came to visit me here in Kenya for the 2nd time and i wanted to show her something else then the North coast Hotels so we spent 2 nights in Leopard Beach Hotel together with my spouse and family.

The hotel is nice has a beautiful beach and very nice and large swimming pool very nice for small kids as well.

Hotel rooms are clean and big and nicely decorated must have been renovated lately and are taken good care which means that the staff is well trained in cleaning the facilities.

Restaurants and Bars. There are many. All have a great choice of intercontinental & local food some is prepared fresh to your choice and all have friendly staff working there.
Variety and decorations are excellent, taste a joy.

Afternoon tea & coffee is served free of charge near the pool. Bitings are affordable.

Swimming pool. Large, clean and nice for kids too. There is even a life guard on duty. If you prefer a quite place, go and use the some kind smaller pool near the spa and gym, as this is not for people under 16. Which also has a nice jacuzzi and a health/cocktail bar.

Gardens are very nice loads of newly planted and mature trees and flowers all around. Sittings are everywhere which invite you to just have a short break sit down and relax.

Staff: I give you an example. Did you ever sit somewhere in a restaurant or Hotel and a waiter/staff looks at you, you look back to signalize that you ready to order or that you need help and he still does so as he hasn't seen you?
This will not happen in Leopard Beach. Even if they in the biggest hassle you never walk, stand or sit without to be looked after very well.

We cant say much for the Animation or Entertainment as we only stayed 1 night and we went out to visit friends but for sure its amazing for tourists they really make an afford in entertaining you.

We were only able to see the Masai dance, which was pretty much the same as in all the other Hotels and bars where we have seen it but as always its nice to see these boys jump and sing.
There afterwards was a possibility to buy Masai art and jewels, at least there you have time to have a good look on the items and you are not hassled by them to buy anything.

Within the Hotel area is a Spa which has a quite interesting and full menu starting as low as about 5 EUR to use the Gym, Sauna and steam for a whole day, Week and month memberships available as well, to affordable massages starting as low as about 25 EUR by professionals. Full week treatment packages are also available all up to your taste. Best to check there website for this.

All in all i say I WILL COME BACK even if its again just for a day or 2.

Loved this beach resort. Exciting beach holiday with swimming, golf, great food. The service up to great hotel standards. The ambiance of Diani for a holiday fantastic. Their suites impecable and nicely decorated. The climate somewhat hot and uncomfortable but the air conditioning provides a good respite. Can recommend it very highly.

We spent a wonderful 11 days at this hotel with a break after 5 nights to take a safari. This well run hotel holds a prime position on Diani Beach amidst lovely gardens and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff are very friendly and kind and the food is delicious. Loads of fresh fruit, vegatables and salads - lots of variety and really something for everyone. Can't comment on the spa as we didn't use it but it looked very luxurious. Even though the hotel was fairly full, it didn't seem crowded as there's a sense of spaciousness. We would definitely go back and hope to next year.

Leopard Beach Hotel
I rate this hotel 5 stars in terms of entertainment, service, food quality etc.
It was a perfect get away for me. From the hustle and bustle of life we decided to go to Mombasa,Kenya and Leopard Beach Hotel gave us the best.
From the time we entered we felt very welcome and the staff was great at showing us around the hotel. We were amazed with how many sea facing restaurants and bars they had which had ever smiling waiters.
The large swimming pool over looked the sea and they had various water activities including water aerobics.
It is true that diani has one of the finest beaches in the world. The water is crystal clear and the sun shining makes it just perfect to swim in.
We arrived on a Friday and that night the hotel had a beach barbeque and a live band which throughouly entertained us. The food buffet was huge and with a lot of variety and desert was delicious. Dancing under the stars was so pleasant and romantic, could have done it all night.
The rooms are spacious, clean and welcoming:)
The next day the breakfast lay out was just what we hoped for and in a different location facing the sea. The afternoon we spent using the hotel’s well equipped gym after which a spa treat that was utter bliss. The spa is away from the hotel which makes it very peaceful and the service and staff is very professional.
Dinner again was at a different location and very well catered for.
I would surely recommend this hotel to anybody as it did really well for us.
A MUST STAY THANK YOU LEOPARD BEACH

After spending numerous holidays in Diani beach I must say Leopard beach is one of the most gorgeous spots on the coast. The staff at the hotel are so friendly and helpful. The garden is beautiful and is full of life with cats, monkeys, tortoises, amazing flowers and ponds. The spa offers what anyone could wish for from yoga sessions, massages, facials, waxing, a gym and a lovely pool in the shade of the trees. My favorite night was spend on the beach with a live band while eating a mouthwatering bbq, finishing off with an amazing cocktail at Marco's bar. The rooms are perfect with comfortable beds, AC and a bathroom with a great shower (something that can be hard to find on the coast due to low water pressure and clogged shower heads). Anyway not very much time is was spent in the room as the indian ocean offers snorkeling, diving, kite surfing and swimming and of cause sunbathing. Don't expect Bulgaria cause this is Africa - go explore and I can't recommend this place enough!
