Not sure what people are expecting when they book the Cove, but they must be missing the point if they give it negative reviews.
The location, treehouses, restaurant and of course the staff, are truly amazing.
If you are the sort of person who loves simplicity, charm and VFM, in what must be one of the best little places/location on the Dani stretch - then book
If you are grumpy people - go to mainland Europe on a last minute budget flight
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 6 gorgeous little villas built into the trees on the edge of a tropical beach. No tv, no wi-fi, no distractions! All you need to do is unwind and plug back into nature's pace on this beautiful, forest-lined stretch of coast. Our small, intimate lodge is nestled in its own private cove, just 12kms from Diani Beach Town - but well away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. The Cove offers guests exclusivity, excellent service, and the peace and quiet of a magical retreat! Here, time doesn't matter, and our team will work around your schedule. Your long, lazy beach walks will be uninterrupted, and the only sounds you will hear are the wish-wash of the tide, the cry of distant fish eagles and the rustling of the Baobab and Coconut tree leaves. The Cove has only six ocean-facing villa treehouses, with their own private decks. Enjoy panoramic vistas of the East African coastline dotted with pretty Ngalawas (Swahili boats). The Cove is a romantic retreat and is perfect for honeymooners. If your dream is to have a Kenyan beach wedding then you have just found the perfect place for it. Diani Beach has been voted Africa's Top Beach Destination 3 years in a row (beating Mozambique, Sharm El Sheikh, Zanzibar and Cape Town!), and is everything you'd expect from a tropical beach get-away: a gentle breeze whispering across powdery white beaches fringed by coconut trees and lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Diani is on the Kenyan South Coast, a scenic forty-five minute drive from Mombasa. Like any good beach destination - Diani Beach is not short of activities. We can organise kite surfing, diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing and so much more while you stay with us..... Or you could choose to indulge in absolute relaxation during your stay with us. ... more less
