Beautiful hotel, lovely pool, good service, nice food and courteous staff especially Gabriel Baya. Our room was not equipped with a cooler but at least the weather was cool at the time of our visit. It would have been necessary during the crazy hot weather

Imagine this: having fresh coconut taken only for you by the hotel area with the view of beautiful diani beach with the crystal clear water. If you are looking for true exotic holiday with amazing hospitality in African way,  this is the place to go. You will be missed. Good luck to all of the staff. We will be back!
