Diani Blue is a charmingly small, intimate and exclusive beach lodge, lapped by the waters of the Indian Ocean. Ideally located on Diani Beach, which was recently voted the 'Best Beach' in Africa by the 'Oscars of the travel industry', Diani Blue features just six spacious Swahili-style rooms (all with AC) clustered around a central pool and overlooking the silver-white sands of Diani Beach. The palm shaded beach restaurant - The Edge offers the perfect dining spot overlooking the Indian ocean, well re known for the piquancy of its cuisine - a fusion of Swahili exoticism and Italian Pazzazz.

Three nights with our family in this small boutique resort. Friendly staff, great food and right on the beach. I would go there again and recommend it to others. Long walks along the beach, swimming in the pool or the Indian Ocean.

Wonderful place for a family reunion. Small, intimate and peaceful. I hesitate to use the word hotel as it's more like being in a rather beautiful house. Stunning views of the beach which is literally a stone's throw away. The Edge restaurant served varied and delicious menu
