“A little piece of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

It's hard not to relax at Watano House. Good view. Blue sky, turquoise ocean, white sand, and lush green landscaped gardens. A nice large main house, with its own salt water pool and a variety of peripheral structures to hang out in, either with by yourself or with your friends. Cushions in every corner, including an especially large and extra soft bean bag. Cooked meals prepared by a dedicated army of chefs. Decide what you want to eat. As a rule, the meals will be prepared late, there will be many of them and the food will be brought out slowly to tease and tantalize you, but it will always be really good.

Overall, an amazing beach holiday.

We rented out Watano house for a week for my 30th birthday. We loved the airy house, the daily massaged, the fresh fish, the incredible chef, and the whole staff. There is nothing negative to say it. The house is huge, right on the beach, with lovely grounds and salt water pool. Diani town is a 5-minute walk up the road, where you can go shopping.
