The hotel is average but with a great location and stunning beach. The restaurant could have been located at a better place to take advantage of the spectacular view. The rooms were a little old and dated too. However the service of the staff made up for everything. A special shout out to Patrick who went above and beyond the call of duty. If I were a hotelier I'd immediately poach him .
We had a family break at The Zubeida celebrating a few special occassions, a 60th Birthday and and anniversary. We had young and old, 80yrs to 1 yrs and we had strict vegetrarians, vegans and non vegetarians in our group. Zubeida catered for it all. We occupied Villa 1 which has a prime spot meters away from the beautiful beach with the most beautiful decor and amazing views. I can't really fault the villa and the property, very well manicured gardens and common areas, stunning views, well equipped villas with ample lounge areas for our party of 10. Special mention has to go to Chef Brian who was exceptional. No request was too much for him, he catered for my Vegan diet in a way no hotel at the coast has done before. Brian should open a vegan restaurant on Diani beach. Not only were we quite a demanding group with a variety of palletes, we all had different dietary requirements. Brian was completely up to the task. He made special meals for us on a number of occasions. Its clear to see that he has experience gained across the globe. Dennis the property manager was equally up to the task, getting his team to manage our every request. The staff are certainly the icing on the cake in this small but boutique property. You won't regret it.…
One of the most amazing trips of my life. The staff were all so friendly and approachable. The food was unbelievably good and the chef Brian made a wide range of cuisines. Dennis the manager was very accommodating to all our requests. The villas are beautiful, and access to the beach is very easy.
The food was amazing, the beach was clean and safe, there was access to a swimming pool. The service was also great! The villa’s had a kitchen, fridge and stove which was nice because we were under the half-board package and we were able to make lunch by ourselves.
Rooms amazing. The staff are so friendly. The location is close to everything. The head chef prepared amazing food. If I were to recommend a place in Diani, it will be the zubedia every time. Highly recommended, no need to think twice about booking the zubeida.
