Location: Diani Beach

WaterLovers is a beautiful and quaint resort located on Diani Beach on Kenya's southern coast.  Here, guests enjoy seemingly endless stretches of white sand, framed by crystalline blue waters and dotted with coconut palm groves.  The lush forest bordering the beach is a hive of wildlife activity, housing black-and-white Colobus monkeys and stunning tropical birds. 

Six white plaster cottages with golden wooden beaming sit within the grounds of the WaterLovers, each offering Indian Ocean views from a private balcony.  Each cottage is equipped with air conditioning, fan, mosquito netting, secure lock box, tea and coffee making facilities and SIM card to used in your own mobile.  The décor is simple and elegant, with large windows allowing plenty of natural light, not to mention a refreshing sea breeze. 

For a little extra privacy, perhaps for those travelling in a large group or family, there is also the WaterLovers villa.  This villa, decorated in Swahili-inspired style with carved beds and a beautiful central staircase, offers two double bedrooms on the ground floor, fully equipped with air conditioning, fan and private bathrooms.  On the upper level are two king size beds and a third bathroom.  The dining area is comfortable and cosy, furnished with a large dining table (perfect for entertaining) as well as sofas and pillows.  The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and fittings.  Housekeeping is included at the villa, and a personal chef can be provided at an extra cost. 

Dining at WaterLovers takes place at the Tides restaurant, a lovely establishment overlooking the infinity pool.  Each tempting mouthful of Mediterranean style cuisine is prepared using the freshest ingredients the east coast has to offer.  The menu changes each day, with some of the most popular dishes including pumpkin ravioli in fish ragout, crab fagottini with avocado, and passion fruit mousse.  For a cocktail or fresh juice, try the Ocean Spirit beach bar.

The infinity pool, whimsically shaped as a turtle, is a great place to relax and cool off.

WaterLovers has close proximity to one of Diani's finest water sports establishments – the H2O Extreme Water Sport Centre, where you can discover or hone your skills in kite and wind surfing.  In a matter of minutes, you can be taken in a traditional fishing boat out the the coral reef, where the snorkelling is simply delightful.  For those who are interested in diving or even big game fishing, WaterSports can put you in contact with the best local operators.

Outside of water sports, there is an 18-hole golf course a mere five minutes from WaterLovers.  Shimba Hills Reserve is a 30 minute drive, and marine safaris can also be arranged at the nearby Wasini Island and Kisite Marine Park.

Reviews & Testimonials of WaterLovers Beach Resort

"the closest thing on Earth to paradise"

It looked too good to be true on the web site but we booked anyway. We arrived expecting, as one does, that it wouldn't be quite so good as depicted. We were wrong! if anything, it was better!

What a location! A stones throw from white sands washed by the deep blue, Indian Ocean. Picturesque, spotless, accommodation, delightful pool and cool dining area, good food, cheerful, efficient service, charming hosts, you couldn't ask for anything better. We will be back as often as possible.

"Perfect end to an amazing holiday"

We went to Kenya on safari before heading down to Diani Beach for 9 days. We had the pleasure of meeting Ricardo & Valentina (the owners) and spending our last few nights at Water Lovers.

This is a great alternative to the larger slightly soulless hotels which dominate the Diani Beach strip. As there are only 8 rooms you get a total feeling of privacy and seclusion despite being right in the middle of a bustling tourist area.

Especially liked the swimming pool which feels like you're looking over the sea, and the other quirky and cool design features in the main area. Food was very good and staff were excellent (thanks to Lawrence, Michael, Bahari, Richard, Sudi and the rest of the team there). We borrowed the kayak one day and headed out to the reef which was fun.

Ricardo and Valentina's passion for hospitality really shines through - we definitely look forward to visiting WaterLovers and them again!
