Recently returned from a fantastic week at Lantana.Great option for those who prefer a selfcatering option at the coast but with the benefit of hotel type services onsite. We were a group of 18 staying in a range of different accommodation types from the one bed penthouse to the 3 bed villa.All units are cleaned daily,beds made and washing up done and all come equipped with a washing machine.
While there we celebrated a 50th birthday party which was a huge success thanks to the efforts made by Diana the manager and all the staff at Lantana.They spent the whole day preparing for the party by decorating the restaurant.The band was great playing a huge variety of music.
Food in the restaurant was good and Patience the manager is wonderful but the service was a bit "hit and miss" depending on who was on duty.
Poolside service was very good and the pool attendants extremely helpful.
Property has two pools and is situated right on the lovely Galu beach.
We used tuks tuks to get to the local supermarket at Baharini plaza and also to local bars and restaurants.
There is a spa and gym available also but didnt use those so cannot comment on them.
All in all a great location and we would definitely go back again.

Lantana at Galu Beach is a dream! It is truly amazing. From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a warm smile and a soothing cold glass of passion fruit juice to quince your your palate. Service throughout the resort is impeccable, the restaurant staff caters to your every whim. The rooms are a glow with a mix of Indian and Swahili decor throughout. Whether you prefer a pool or the ocean both are at your feet within just a few short steps of your room. This was my second visit and I can imagine making it an annual affair. If you are thinking to visit Diani, Lantana at Galu beach is the place to go!!

The highlight of my first trip to Kenya was time spent at Lantana Galu Beach with dear friends. The luxurious accommodations, fine dining, outstanding service and stellar amenities alone make for a fabulous vacation. Couple these with a pristine, secluded Indian Ocean beach and you’ve arrived in paradise on earth.

Lantana at Galu Beach on the coast of the Indian Ocean in Kenya is one of those rare finds. The villas and apartments overlook the white powdery sands of Galu Beach. This little gem with its amazing staff is a bucket list special. It’s one of those get always that is simply breathtaking. An early morning stroll on the beach to watch the fishermen take off in their boats as the sun rises is my absolute favorite. This trip was with two friends visiting Kenya and we couldn’t have chosen a better place. A beach that stretches as far as your eyes can see, and a rooftop where you can watch the sun rise and set. A serene, special location where the staff make you feel welcome and at home. It has an on-site restaurant that provides the freshest catch of the day. Diani town is minutes away if one wants to leave this paradise. But why go anywhere else when you’ve arrived at one of the best beaches in Kenya. Love this place, recommend it highly and can’t wait to get back!
