Reviewed 14 December 2015

Spent a very relaxed 4 nights or so at Demani. Very good value for money at $25 per night, other places further down the beach are the same price but definitely not as nice or as clean. We had a room with shared bathroom facilities, but this was totally fine as the toilet/shower block was spotless! Lovely little pool for relaxing in when it's super hot, and it's only a short walk over the road to the quiet end of the beach where you are seldom hassled and often have the beach to yourselves. Would recommend Demani to friends!

Room Tip: A room in the top of the huts is cooler

We expected NOTHING, but we extended our saty for 9 nights at Demani. Location far enough from village - 2,5 km=25min walk= supermarket+local village life; close enough to the beach - 2 minutes walk to the local beach= empty=not too much disturbed by "camouflage "massage" maasai´s". Good beachwalks on both directions. Enjoy early sunrise. Thursday nightparties 20.00+ might be noisy and not enough much fresh seafood than promised, but OK. Enjoy the sun, friendly hosts, clean sleeping and quiet environment.

Room Tip: we enjoyed our little clean bungaloo

One of the warmest welcomes I've received anywhere. Great kitchen is that good people have been coming from other places they were staying to eat here. Great attention to detail by the staff. Mohammed looked after us very well!

We went out of high season so the area was very quiet and felt quite exclusive. Stunning beaches almost completely to ourselves!

Loads of wildlife in the area.

The place is located 20-30min walk from paje village which means it's nice and quit alle the time.
The place its decorated with sofas, hammock s and pillows everywhere. Great place to chill and meet new friends. Bow night on Thursdays with a lovely and cheap seafood buffet.

We have stayed at Demani Lodge for 3 nights and had great fun. You will meet a lot of backpackers and of course new friends. The Demani bbq party on Thursday is a must. They serve great food and afterwards there is a DJ who will create the best party!! It was a great stay and again perfect if your are backpacking!
