Welcome to a resort where the enchanting power of nature blends in with the exotic style of the Indo-Arab buildings to offer you a mesmerizing charm, which in Swahili, is called "bembeleza". Sit in the Balinese chaise lounges on your room terrace and listen to the sound of the wind rustling the palm trees, enjoy the music of the waves and let your heart dance in silence: your Dream of total relaxation has finally come true. Chose to dine on the open air terrace or inside the air conditioned restaurant, overlooking the swimming pool or at the a la carte restaurant serving a selection of seafood menus on the beach. Endowed with a centre of Thalassotherapy, a beauty centre and a gym with spectacular view on the ocean, the Dream Spa is the ideal place for the restoration and the maintenance of global prosperity

Attended a two day work performance review meeting. They have a spacious well equipped and modern conference room. The hotel offers great service and hospitality, with warm and friendly staff. The meal options were delightful, both for teas and main meals. I had an amazing time.

stayed in room T6 and rooms were lovely. Interesting fact: This is the most expensive hotel in chain of 3 hotels and yet it has no beach bar for clients staying on all inclusive package. they ask you to use cheaper hotel bar even if you stay at the hotel At this hotel they don't serve drinks at beach bar to all inclusive client so why would they want people to pay extra and stay on inclusive package? best pool is at middle hotel dreams gardens

Nice hotel, large junior suites, directly at beach front. Excellent food and good and friendly waiters. Sometime a bit slow which represents the ‚pole pole’ mood in Kenya (take it easy attitude). The infrastructure needs some updates, as you can clearly see the consequences of COVID impacting operations for the last couple of years. You can use the infrastructure of the Sandies Beach hotel joint to the Diamonds, which is convenient especially in the evening for some entertainment. But there needs to be even more renovations on that side. Beach: hotel is Separated by a wall from the beach/sea that is very convenient when flood comes but also to keep off the local guys trying to sell tours or souvenirs. Do not expect clear white sand at the beach. You‘ll find it under the sea grass that is natural part of the scenery, which, given the environment, contributes to the raw natural feeling. Some might dislike, some will appreciate the untouched nature. The riff can be accessed walking 200-300 meters when low tide, which is a very nice experience. Overall good experience given the standards in Kenya (do not forget how the locals live there, if starting to complain about luxury problems). BTW, beach with sea grass is standard everywhere as far we saw on the coast around Malindi and further south. So do not get fooled by the brochure pictures showing impeccable white beaches. Check the visitors pictures to get real impressions.
