Description
Forest Dream, a special luxury villa and 2 cottages sits in 3 acres of subtropical forest, located in Diani beach on the south coast of Kenya. With the white sandy beach at only a 10 minutes walk,our guests ...More have the unique combination of beach and forest. We offer a variety of eco-friendly accommodation like standard room, luxury rooms and suites but also one 2 bedroom and a big 5 bedroom cottage and one very luxury villa, 3 bedrooms, with or without AC. Our 2 cottages and the villa are set on its own 1 acre forest garden providing the most exclusive privacy. Best place on the coast to view the local wild-life. The owner of Forest Dream Resort is also the founder of the well know "Colobus trust Diani" and has designed the Colobus bridges over the Diani Road to save those endangered monkeys. We have a private nature reserve at the back of the resort. On request we can deliver a cook and a car for your comfort. Less
