My stay at the resort was nothing short of amazing! The airport transfer, followed by a warm welcome at the hotel by traditional dancers, and chilled 'madafu'.
A special mention of the General Manager; Praveen Rao for his hospitality, kindness, attentiveness and always within reach.
The Japanese Teppanyaki, Maya Spa, and the powdery white beaches are not to be missed at any given point when one decides to visit.
The chefs are very good at what they do! Exec.Chef Mugambi,chef George, Chef Calvin and the rest of the team will give you a trip round the round tasting different cuisines while seated at the restaurant!
I want to go back and finish what I started.

Nice spacious rooms, all sea facing. Very welcoming and friendly staff. Special mention to Mr. Praveen Rao, the Resort Manager for his friendly welcome and excellent hospitality. He and his staff ensured we had a comfortable 4 nights stay and we enjoyed ourselves. Special mention to the Indian chef for his delicious Indian breakfasts. The Japanese Sake restaurant is a must go while there and we enjoyed our dinner there. Hoping to visit again.

Stayed for 2 days, one night at the tail end of low season. Despite there being very few guests ( not complaining!) service still superb, personalised. My wife just loved this place. Will definitely be back for our wedding anniversary, with the little one in tow.

Diani Reef Beach and Resort is easily the best resort in Diani Beach. It is truly a fabulous resort and has everything you are looking for.

The resort sits right on a beautiful stretch of the beach with white sand and crystal clear blue water. The pool is spectacular and has a pool bar which is a great time. There is a spa located on the property that is top of the line.

My wife and I stayed here for the last 4 days of our honeymoon and the resort went out of their way to make us feel special and to ensure that we had the most memorable time, it was the trip of a lifetime! The staff was incredibly friendly, attentive and helpful. Every person who worked there,from the front desk, waiters, waitresses, bartenders, and managers, made sure that we had what we needed and were enjoying our stay. Beyond the amazing features and beautiful setting what really makes Diani Reef special is the staff.

I would 100 percent recommend Diani Reef to anyone and if you are on the fence about where to stay then look no further, you will not be disappointed.
