This was not my first time at waterlovers and it’s certainly not my last. From the moment I arrived I felt so welcomed here. All the staff here are so polite and friendly, you really feel at home. The food is also amazing, a great vegetarian menu and also delicious breakfast. My highlight was probably the lobster.

We spent 5 nights at Waterlovers on Dec 2020. Our room and terrace had stunning views over the gorgeous private beach. The staff made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel has a small exclusive feel to it.

The food was good but we chose to eat out most nights for fun and a change. There are several excellent restaurants a short and inexpensive taxi ride away.

The beach sellers were very respectful and they don’t come onto the private beach of the hotel grounds so it was all very peaceful. The hotel is located on the very best stretch of Diani beach.

Honestly, Waterlovers is a little slice of paradise and we can’t recommend it enough. Can’t wait to return!

We ended up having to change our plans last minute because of flight cancellations and we are so happy we did as we never would have found this place!! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like part of the Waterlover’s family. All the staff are so helpful and friendly and really are a credit to the place. The visit was for our honeymoon and the staff went over and above to decorate our suite and make our stay so special for us. It was perfect, we stayed on a Half Board basis and both the breakfast and evening meals were delicious, freshly prepared and cooked. We did not have a bad meal the whole time we were there. The suites and grounds are well looked after, so clean and tidy and you can tell the staff are all passionate about their jobs. Unfortunately due to covid, like all hotels it has been quiet during the last few months and there was a staff rota in place so no one was paid off which I thought was a brilliant idea. Everything about this place is incredible, the location, the grounds, the general atmosphere around the place but overall the staff really made our honeymoon for us. From such a warm welcome from Valentina and Kevin to Albert’s legendary mojitos and smoothies!! We kindly thank Khamisi for looking after us and being so attentive. Saidi, Richard, Hassan, Abdullah and all the kitchen staff gate staff, security and cleaners for making this truly an experience to cherish. We will most certainly be back at some point...so please keep the mojitos on ice ready for us Albert!!

If anyone is concerned about travelling in the current climate...please don’t be! We felt so safe the whole time we were there. All staff wear masks, sanitiser is available and temperature checks were done daily on all staff and guests. There is so much space to social distance , we never felt uneasy about any of the covid measures...that was the same for everywhere we visited in Kenya, they are so well organised. So please book your next trip here...you won’t regret it!!

Take care all...Danielle and Stephen xx

Room tip: We stayed in the Hippo suite which was amazing but there are only 8 suites so any would be perfect
