We spent 10 days here after a safari in the Masai Mara and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The property is situated overlooking the Indian Ocean and is so beautiful, spacious and very stylishly decorated but what really elevates it is the staff .... from Dorcas an amazing chef who seemed to be able to cater...

A perfect complement to the preceding Safari holiday. A luxurious, relaxing but not pretentious environment. Really friendly staff, who are very attentive. Highlights were the outstanding adjacent Diani Beach (unsurpassed in our experience), and the magnificent food (especially for fish lovers), prepared with real care and culinery skill by the in-house staff.

The minute you walk into this beautiful loving place you are embraced by the owners and the outstanding staff! I can truly say that Almanara is paradise, we stayed for one week and had the best time ever! The food in the Hotel and at their restaurant Sails on the beach is to die for, my favorite: ginger crab.

We spent 4 relaxing days at Almanara, in one of the luxury 3-bedroom villas, which came complete with chef, housekeeper, and other staff (we opted for full board as we had our children in tow). The villa was 1 minute's walk from the swimming pool, which was perfect for young kids - we literally spend entire days there, made all... More

We came to Almanara after about 4 days in the Masai Mara reserve. And it was perfect. My wife and I stayed here for about 3 days as part of our honeymoon and there is not one thing I could find wrong in this place. With access to a stunning white sand beach, it must be quite a property if... More

What an idyllic spot on the Kenyan coast. The suites in the main house are fantastic with stunning sea views. We were treated to superbly cooked food and a menu of our choice. The staff are very friendly, the beach beautiful and the sea warm.

A Jewel in the Crown on the Indian Ocean. We had a perfect end to a honeymoon after a Safari. The staff couldn't do anything more than they do to make your stay more comfortable. We stayed in the hotel that offers the most amazing views of the pool and the sea. The food was superb and nothing at all... More

The hotel/villas are simply magical located in quieter part of Diani beach - which is perfect ! We stayed in 'Casa Bella' which is the main house - though only 6 bedrooms , it has wonderful huge space and all rooms have breathtaking Ocean/ pool views with clear white sands which go on for miles (Alternatively you can also choose...
