This was place was a real gem, and a really friendly place. Bandas were very clean and food was just devine, whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner. No it's not on the beach, but feels like a proper beach place with sand in the whole complex. For the price you pay it's great and takes about a 20 min... More

Very good stay, we really recommend Demani, the food is also great, we took most of our dinners there. The pool is great and we could really relax by the pool the days we did not leave for trips, recommended

Beautiful garden, nice rooms, cool bar, pool, clean mosaic bathrooms. On thursday nights there is a bbq night with a dj. The nice beach is a bit far away, but it is not a problem, because the place is so beautiful.

We stayed at Demani Lodge for three nights and loved it. The staff and host were lovely and even the food was good. One thing to be conscious of is that Thursday night is a big party night and people come from other lodges to party into the early morning. We were not aware and had to leave early the... More

This place was gorgeous! I had some troubles getting my credit card to work with their online system, but they were super communicative and helpful over email prior to my stay, and we worked it all out when I got there. I booked airport transportation through them, and was picked up easily at the airport and got to the lodge... More

Breakfast was basic (fruit + egg + bread) you can choose a different style of egg and the bread and fruit are different every day. Rooms and bathroom are very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is really good and not too expensive! Nice pool. We booked for 4 nights but we stayed 5... More

We stayed in a tripple room for two night and it was barely okay. The mattress bed was super soft and the slats were not supporting the mattress evenly. We had our worst night during our two months in East Africa here. The manager agreed to fix the problem and we got a firm mattress, almost as hard as a... More

As long as you view Demani as more of a nice hostel, you'll think it's fabulous. The basics were covered pretty well here, with the exception that I never had hot water (and I checked multiple times throughout the day). Good restaurant / bar area to meet others if traveling solo. Short (3 min) walk to beach. Note that at... More
