We just arrived back home in Nairobi after a 4 night stay at the Resort. Everything from the room to the activities to the scenary to the staff and service was spectacular. We got a room upgrade as well on arrival which was a nice surprise. I literally couldn't have asked for a better stay. Al thought I have to say the food options for vegetarians really should be looked at as my girlfriend who is a vegetarian really struggled for options and the taste wasn't great sometimes. Otherwise everything was spectacular.

I am currently staying at this incredible resort and can’t recommend it highly enough. It is by far the most beautiful place I have EVER stayed. The hotel is right on the beautiful Diani beach, I have spent my mornings going for a walk/run along the beach before coming back to enjoy a delicious breakfast which is fresh and varied each day. The food has been delicious, and dinner each night changes location from the beautiful dinner hall, to outside candle lit dinners from dinners nearer the beach front- all have been amazing. The staff have gone above and beyond to make me feel at home and safe. Being a solo traveler it’s been wonderful to have such great staff to chat with and who are there looking out for you at all times. The drink selection is huge, with a variety of cocktails and non alcoholic drinks! Wine is very drinkable and the bar staff are 👌 I have just had to extend my trip which involved a flight change and having to book a PCR test. The staff look over and did this for me so it’s was so stress free. Not only did they book the PCR test but the test is also able to be done in the hotel lobby! You would not regret coming here to stay- paradise.

The best bit about this hotel was the climate was lovely with a constant sea breeze taking the edge off the temperatures. The beach was stunning but as with all of Kenya, you can't really lounge on it. This is partly because it almost disappears at high tide but mainly due to the hawkers. If you turn left from the hotel, you can reach the north end of this part of the beach in around 30 minutes (so a 1 hour round trip), if you turn right you get to the end in around 45 minutes). This made for a lovely late afternoon stroll. The pool was nice but had the hotel been full (it was about one third full due to the covid-19 pandemic) I think it, along with the area for sun loungers, would have been too small. Food was buffet style and the quality was variable - some of it was very good but some of it wasn't. For example, we had beef two nights in a row. The first night it was tender, the second it was tough. The more popular choices would also be gone after about 20 minutes of service. The room was fine and the AC was powerful enough and quiet enough to ensure a good sleep.
