Tiwi beach resort far from Diani ?

Hi

Is the amani tiwi beach resort far from Diani ?

Is there much around the amani tiwi?

Is it safe to walk along the road for example during the day?

There's nothing outside the hotel and no real reason to walk along the road. Your'e not far from Diani Beach, but separated from it most of the year by the Mwachema River. Sometimes you can wade across, but that tip of Tiwi Beach, as the staff will warn you (and as a TA poster described in the last few days), has often been the scene of muggings over the years, so it's best not to go unaccompanied.

Thanks yankari

We are going next monday and really looking forward to it

Any other tips welcome

Speaking of tips what is the going rate for tipping etiquette

Last time we gave 100 shillings per day for room cleaning

About 200-300 per person for safari driver

What is the current position - can you advise ?

At beach hotels, I usually leave Ksh1000 per room per day in the general staff tip box. And I don't tip any individuals at beach hotels.
