#5 of 97 Specialty lodging in Diani Beach
We invite You to Hotel Sonrisa, with only ten rooms. It is personal, private and has a lovely beautiful karma about it. Sonrisa is located directly on the stunning sandy white beach called Galu Kinondo (Diani Beach), the place which should satisfy even the most improper dreamers seeking for the archetype of tropical beach. Please come and relax. Let us spoil you.

Want a quiet, peaceful stay in Diani? Then Sonrisa is the place. Off the tourist areas but with a great beach and amenities. Food is definitely 5* and the accommodation spacious and well appointed. Would recommend this gem to anyone.

Our safari had been a fantastic experience but it was very tiring, so it was wonderful to spend a few days relaxing in this gorgeous place before going home. The gardens are lush and lovely, our room was spacious and beautifully designed (with delightfully luxurious bodywash, moisturiser and so on), the food was scrumptious (try and be there for a Sunday, for breakfast on the beach!) and the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
