We thoroughly enjoyed our trip at villa kalista. From the property and service to the meals, all aspects were superb. The sea facing views from our villa were breathtaking! Faiza the owner made us feel at home and ensured we were well taken care of. We tried different cuisines from the menu and all were splendid! Paul the pastry chef surprised us daily with amazing desserts! We will definitely revisit!
The host, Faiza is also the owner and lives on property. She has made it her personal mission to ensure that guests have an excellent and comfortable stay. The villas are situated about 20 mins drive from Diani airport on a dirt road. To get cabs and other local transport is difficult here. However the management will try and provide transfer at a fee. We visited the place during Christmas unfortunately we couldn't swim in the sea as the beach was rocky. Have been told that the situation changes in Feb when the sand comes back. The villas are all very clean and comfortable. The master bedroom have jacuzzi and 2 showers and sinks !!!. wow. The A/C worked very well, which is a big plus as most other places A/C are always an issue. They provide meals which to say the least are truly delicious. Faiza catered to all our requests exceptionally well. Freshly baked doughnuts, croissants, etc were excellent. Excellent large portions of sea food that was yummy. The pool is good but if there was shade on one side than it will be better, also need some lights in the pool and a better pool bar fridge. I would recommend this place highly and I would definitely visit this place again…
For years i have wanted my kids to experience the magic of a home on the beach, waking up to a gorgeous sunrise, beach combing for shells, watching the sea urchins, jelly fish and different little fish darting about in the little pools when the tide goes out, hearing the waves crash at full tide...oooh the childhood memories Villa Kalista brought back. We have loved every moment, a million new memories to look back upon, thank you for making it possible...a home away from home. The pool was an added bonus, food was amazing, service was excellent and the owner's presence was the cherry on top 🥰 Hope to see you soon again. Ruhina abdulhamid aboo.
We had the most amazing time at Villa Kalista, great food (and Vegetarian food, and some of the best Salads at in Coast as well), great service, swimming pool was close to all the villas, the villas are spacious and am looking forward to visiting them again very soon.
The stay was absolutely amazing. It had the most stunning views at sunrise. The villa is exactly as is on the website, staff were extremely generous and ready and willing to help. Much thanks to especially Jonathan and Clint. The whole team helped us surprise the birthday girl and it was spectacular. The food ❤️❤️❤️❤️ 15/10…. You must try the lobster! This is not a place to visit once. Home away from home 👌🏿
