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!

We stayed here in 2006 on a family holiday and the hotel was fantastic!! The beach is one of the best I have seen in the world and the tsavo west Safari is a once in a life time experience. Facilities are good the food is lovely and the pool is beautiful
