Diani Sea resport - southern palms

Hiya we are looking at the two resorts in kenya for Sept 14. Does anyone know if the pools are fresh water or salt water?

We like to spend time on beach and also cool off round the pool.

Also looking at a safari, although we have never been done anything like this so any help is appreciated :-)

Check out this 4 resorts and see if they might meet and even exceed your accommodation needs:)

1. Diani reef beach resort and spa

2. Almanara Diani Beach resort

3. Swahili beach resort

4. Baobab beach resort

Enjoy the great white sand beaches and also extra curricular activities such as wind surfing, snorkeling , kite surfing, scuba diving, jet skiing etc etc

Pools are generally fresh water.

As for the safari, since your are going to be in the coastal area, Tsavo national park is a must see.

Enjoy while in Kenya:)

If you are going to Southern Palms (as you have specified) this hotel has one of the largest pools in East Africa.

The pools actually snake around - one sea water and one chlorine.

There is a swim up bar and two jacuzzis

One pool leads to the beach with sunbeds where there is plenty security and you do not get disturbed by the beach boys.

If your budget allows then I would personally recommend The Masai Mara for safari with the great migration going on.

We always go there in September.

Have a great time whatever you decide.!!!
