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...

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...

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...

This is a truly fabulous place to stay. My husband and I spent four nights here at the end of September. From the moment we arrived and were met by our welcoming committee, we knew we had chosen somewhere very special. The villas have been very tastefully designed and offer a high level of privacy. All staff, from the gardeners...

Birthday getaway from the city. Reservations were quick and painless. Welcoming reception from Cathy the manager was warm. Suite 2 was massive yet very homely. A small warning: leaving the room to go anywhere is impossible due to the peaceful luxury ambience! The 5 star cuisine, unobtrusive yet prompt service, huge marble bathroom with wonderful jacuzzi ..the list goes on....
