Having lived a dozen years in Kenya and returning annually for vacations makes it hard to find new gems on the coast - luckily Waterlovers was just that, a gem right on the best beach (in my opinion), Diani Beach, south coast, Kenya. We stayed with our extended family in the villa (6 adults + 1 baby) enjoying the peace and quiet of a villa setting but also being able to use the pool and restaurant of the hotel (excellent food!). It feels very private since there are only a handful of hotel rooms and the villa at the back of the property. The place looks extremely chique, with a clear influence of Swahili design (all furniture was made of the beautiful African mwuli wood for example) and contemporary Mediterranean design. The beach is beautiful and there are plenty of activities for the active travellers (kit surfing, windsurfing, diving etc.), or one can just relax by the pool or beachside. The staff are friendly and helpful and the owners Riccardo and Valentina will ensure that your stay is more than enjoyable. Congratulations to the couple who have built and run this fantastic place.
