This was an excellent relaxing stay for us, one of the best we have had in a long time as a family! We had a 3 bedroom apartment with an fantastic ocean view and all amenities in the apartment were contemporary. Thanks team Lantana Galu! :)

This upscale beachfront resort is heaven on earth. After being away from Kenya for over 25 years this is exactly what I needed. Great for families, child friendly environment. Sport enthusiast can jet ski wind surf, enjoy snorkeling, beach volley ball on white sand beaches. The staff is very friendly, I happened to meet the owner who manages the resort... More

We were group of 24 people. Young and old. As we arrived at the venue we were greeted by vert sweet staff with nicely chilled face towel and chilled soft drink. The place was massive with various types of accommodation and facilities. Brand new building with fantastic furniture and very large rooms. The most important thing is it was spotlessly... More

Stayed for 8 days on family vacation and we truly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were wonderful and very helpful throughout our stay. We had a lovely ocean view apartment, just ideal for us to play indoor games and quiet reading. We however found the beds to springy for comfort. The furnishing in the apartments is good but the floor rugs... More

My husband's friend invited us for his wedding in Diana, Mombasa and we had a complimentary accommodation. So off we went, not knowing what to expect. I have only seen such views on TV, but when we entered our room that was on the 2nd floor, we were mesmerized at how picture perfect it was. The ocean view was unreal... More

Having lived and worked in Kenya for 20 years, I find Galu Beach to be the best beach in Kenya, especially for small children as the beach is flat, clean and sandy. No rough surf and very little coral near the shore. It's close enough to small Diani Town for shopping and restaurants, but maintains a very rustic "Robinson Crusoe"... More

Stayed at Lantana Galu beach and we had an amazing experience. Had a 3 bedroom villa by the beach, next to the pool and restaurant. We had a chef and he was amazing, good food from breakfast to dinner. The rooms were nice, very spacious and clean. The roof terrace with a bar was fantastic, had drinks in the evenings... More

Lovely lovely friendly staff clean apartments and clean pools. Nice restaurant too. Beach clean view spectacular. Always a pleasure to come back. Beware of monkeys but they are a plus to the habitat. Hope the authorities will fix thr rest of the road in the best future. No complaints at all.

The General Manager told us that most of the staff had been with Lantana since its inception some years ago, and it shows: they are justifiably proud of the place and they make every effort to give you a holiday to remember. Their Kenyan friendliness and humour will stay with us forever, in fact. The setting is exquisite. A few... More
