We could not expect a better honeymoon experience than what we had at Almanara. Both my husband and I are pretty well traveled but there's no other beach resort that can beat Almanara. We had a whole big villa just to the two of us. The villa is classic, spacious and clean. The resort is only 3min walk to the...

A family celebration turned out to be a memorable occasion and a must repeat visit. The chef delighted us with amazing seafood and salads.... the beach private, clean and serene.... The reception and staff were very welcoming and warm.... Excellent!

Beautiful hotel/villas set on white sandy Diani beach. All the comforts you could wish for. Hot pool, infinity pool, Jacuzzi in the bedroom, excellent food (Dorcas is an excellent chef), massages available (and Sarah is amazing), car available to take you around and wait for you. Champagne was provided for us on arrival which was an extra nice touch.

Stayed in one of the villas with a friend for three days. We were greeted by Cathy, who runs the property and she made sure that we were properly initiated, introduced to the staff and had everything that we needed. Cathy was kind enough to stop by each day to check on us and to make sure we had everything...

It was the most amazing experience ever. The hotel is a piece of art itself. There's no out of the place. We had two lovely ladies with us that I'd bring them home if I could. The rooftop gives you an amazing wine night with blinking stars and the air full of love. And you finally go to the beach...

The villas are excellent for families. We had a great chef and wonderful staff looking after us. Would highly recommend the resort. Almanara Villas leads directly onto a beautiful white sandy beach. I would fly directly to Diani rather that through Mombassa as the ferry can be quite slow and tiresome.

This hotel is of a very high standard,absolute luxury!! It's quite expensive,but you get what you pay for...we had our own personal chef & waiter,which the attention to detail was paramount, the food was to die for!! Luxurious rooms ,the bathrooms are huge,with robes & slippers provided. Our only drawback was we were the only two in the hotel,although we...

We stayed at Villa 3 for 5 nights. Villa itself is a shear luxury. Decor (perfect Swahili with Italian quality), space (one master bedroom and two more bedrooms; terraces, dining room, TV room), convinience (a special desk for evening work, all air conditioned perfectly), everything. Personal chef, personal butler. Flowers decorations arranged afresh daily in all rooms. The food: you...

Travelled in Mar 2016 and unfortunately could only stay for one night. Pick up was on time, and our driver Bwana was kind enough to stop to buy us sugarcane on our way to our resort.

Stayed at Almanara for a weekend break from Nairobi. This was my first trip to Diani and certainly not my last. Almanara was a great choice. Thee Villa was spacious, well appointed and private. The service was fantastic and the food at every meal, delicious. The setting is beautiful, right on a quiet stretch of perfect beach. Highly recommended!
