We can 100% recommend WaterLovers. It is exclusive with 8 spacious rooms – all beach facing with large balconies – all approx. 20 metres from the sea. All rooms have AC, individual design, large four-poster bed and are very clean.
It is run and owned by an extremely friendly and knowledgeable young kite-surfing Italian couple, and a team of friendly and capable local staff.
The whole experience is fantastic, the food is Italian influenced and matches the best European standards, the wine list is also good. The views are outstanding and every aspect of the hotel build is stunning down to every last detail – they also have 2 friendly boxer dogs as security guards.
We would definitely go again – you wont want to leave… in our experience it is by far the best option along Diani.
FYI: We strongly recommend flying to Ukunda / Diani if possible and miss out the ferry from Mombasa airport as you can queue for a few hours here
FYIFYI: From WaterLovers it is a 5 minute stroll along the beach to Forty Thieves Beach Bar and Disco
