We spent the first part of our holidays on safari in Maasai Mara and the second part was booked on Diani beach.The hotel which was booked for us by the agency had this impersonal and little bit worn out look.So we checked the web for other place, found Waterlovers Beach Resort,had Ricardo on the phone and eventually moved there.
We loved the place from the first moment with stepped in.its a great family run boutique hotel with such a warm approach towards the customer and attention to detail.There are 8 cottages on the territory,each has a name of an African animal. We stayed in a cute rhino cottage with an actual carved rhino in our room.
The style of the hotel is what they call Afro chic and we loved every bit of - the specially carved bar tables, cozy chairs in shape of whale tail, the little pond with flowers for washing the sand of your feet right next to your porch.
The meals were very fresh with a nice touch of a local flavor. You could also choose your setting for dinner whether it is a terrace of the restaurant or the beach or the table by the sea.
There is a gift shop right on the territory of the hotel which has these personalized items that you fall in love with in the hotel- cute wooden turtle shaped coasters,wooden sugar bowls,nice beach towels and turquoise color cozy bathrobes.Much more original and unique than the stuff sold outside.
Thank you to Ricardo and Valentina for making our stay so special! We would definitely like to come back one day.
