My last trip to the Kenya coast once again took me to Diani and while I visited some of the 'old friends' I stayed in two places not sampled before. I must admit that while I heard of Forty Thieves Beach Bar and of course the Ali Barbours Cave Restaurant, Flamboyant had not featured on my horizon. And, I am... More

The Flamboyant used to be one of our favourite relaxing destinations to get away from the stress and noise we have in Nairoby and recover. Unfortunately they seem to have changed their target group. Our relaxing long weekend was not possible. They had a sports tournament at the beach, right in front of the hotel. Including sound system. The beach... More

The Flamboyant is a small boutique hotel located on Diani Beach. It is part of an area that has Ali Barbour's Cave restaurant and Forty Thieves Beach Bar. The room had a great view of the pool. The bathroom was large and had a stand up shower. We had a room with a king size bed and the all important... More

From the time you check in to the stewards, the place is just the perfect place home away from home. The rooms are beautiful clean with a great sea view. The food is wonderful and can recommend this place anytime.

We stayed four nights at Flamboyant. It is a lovely place with direct access to the beach. It's even very close to the Forty thieves bar and the Ali Barbour's cave restaurant. The food at the hotel is very good! The service and the staff was excellent. We stayed in room nr 2. A big and nice room, clean and... More

So, I was staying at Flamboyant on a skydiving trip. It's perfect! Right next door to the skydive centre, also right on the beach. Aside from that, it's a beautiful little hotel that serves a cracking breakfast, has lovely staff and owners and is also located next to 40 Thieves Beach Bar and Ali Barbours Cave restaurant. There is a... More

What a spot, right on the beach with a beautiful pool for the kids. We were lucky that when we stayed (4 adults & 2 kids) we had the place to ourselves. The staff are very helpful, attentive and ready to bring drinks etc. The menu for food has by all accounts not changed in a few months, I didn't... More

I recently had my wedding at flamboyant, and we hired the whole hotel out for three nights. The attention to detail with every little thing by the staff was truly amazing, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Breakfast was great, and the staff made sure even guests who woke up well past midday were still able to get breakfast.The... More

The Flamboyant Hotel is described as boutique - never really sure what that means but it is a lovely, small and friendly hotel - just about ten rooms. Wonderful swimming pool, great breakfasts and rooms have everything required. We stayed in room 5 which is upstairs on the end, it has a lot of light and a small balcony which... More

The location at the beach is beautiful, although we had to make sure each day that the staff transported beach chairs down there for us. Nice garden, nice pool. Very calm and relaxing. The food is good, but nothing special. Meals take time as the service is rather slow. Staff was friendly, but not always around even at the "bar".... More
