Amazing stay in Waterlovers. Great place to relax, only a few guests and outside clients are not allowed.

Service is fantastic and very friendly, helping you organise all the activities you neee.

Food is great with amazing breakfast, lunch and dinner options.

Staff is always ready to help and their main focus is that you enjoy your holidays.

Room is always very clean and with an stunning ocean view.

If we come back to Diani, there is no doubt we will repeat!

Stayed here 5 nights for our 30th wedding anniversary- had excellent service from the moment we arrived until we left and they made our stay feel very special. All staff incredibly friendly and helpful - when you’ve been out it’s so nice to be welcomed ‘home’. Lovely food and very clean comfortable accommodation. Only 10 rooms(some sleep families) so the place never feels crowded,you can always get a sunbed or a hammock! So much nicer than the big impersonal hotels. It’s lovely in the pool looking straight out to the beautiful white sand beach - and you can have romantic candlelit dinners on the sand at night with quiet music played in the bar. All the staff make you feel truly spoilt! The toiletries they provide are top quality and they even provide sun cream. They have security staff so you always feel safe. Don’t be put off Diani Beach by reviews about being pestered by the boys selling things on the beach - they are actually really friendly if you give them a chance and talk to them - they are only trying to make an honest living and most come from really poor villages. If you book a boat trip with them or buy something they really appreciate it. If we go again I would take some unwanted t-shirts/shoes/shorts for them and will also make sure we leave enough time to visit the local village/school and help them with supplies as they rely on tourist help and are all lovely people. Kenya is a lovely country and if we get a chance to go again we would return to WaterLovers without any hesitation. Thanks to all the team for looking after us so well - you are amazing.

From personal and attentive staff, to the beautiful architecture and scenery, my wife and I were very pleased with our stay here to as part of our honeymoon.

We stayed for 3 nights and apart from walking along the beach, we didn't leave the premises once. Everything we needed was there, fresh coconuts from the hotel's own trees as well as the straight-from-the-sea lobster, which we thoroughly enjoyed (my wife had this every night!).

Overall, this was the perfect slice of relaxation and paradise following a week long safari.

Just spent 8 nights at this little gem of a hotel. Truly a pleasant experience, very fresh, intimate, well managed and totally relaxing. The lovely and attentive staff pampering you all day long, delicious food and ice-cold drinks at the pool bar.
Spacious rooms, comfy beds, and a big bathroom.
The beach is just awesome!

Thank you all, you made our stay so spesial and pleasant.
We are now proud members of the Waterlovers family!

All our love, Lisa and The White Maasai Woman

Room tip: Ask for a ground floor room, AC best here.

Just back from a second visit to Waterlovers after a gap of six years. Far too long! Sometimes going back for a second visit can be disappointing but not in this case. Still a fantastic experience a lovely place with excellent staff and lots of cold Tusker. Mental note to go back again. Soon.
