We visited in February and had an amazing five star treatment by Steph, William and Joshphat. We were the only guests. Food was amazing and our tree house was so romantic. Decor is very tasty and arty. Staff were simply amazing but this is typical of Mombasa beaches. Sadly we could not swim in the sea as there was no...

We went a few years ago on our honeymoon and it was absolutely beautiful, staff were attentive and the surroundings just breathtaking. A real haven of peace. Its a very intimate location suited for couples and honeymooners, the facilities were excellent as was the food. The staff couldn't do enough for you.

The Cove Treehouses provided an amazingly secluded and romantic 4 day weekend. First class care by the owner and staff. Wonderfully off the grid. Staff can arrange snorkeling, fishing, etc if that is your wish or just allow you to relax and recover with your mate. Superb!

We came down from our safari in the Mara, not knowing what to expect. We'd obviously researched through the internet, but nothing prepares one for the heavenly view that befalls one from the terrace of the treehouse - there's the Indian Ocean lapping up the beach, just metres away. And the lush vegetation, the sweet bird song, the exceptional service...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
COVE TREE HOUSES - DIANI BEACH, KENYA Our small intimate lodge is nestled in its own private cove, just 12kms from Diani Beach Town - but well away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. The Cove offers guests exclusivity, excellent service, and the peace and quiet of a magical retreat! Here, time doesn't matter, and our team will work around your schedule. Your long, lazy beach walks will be uninterrupted, and the only sounds you will hear are the wish-wash of the tide, the cry of distant fish eagles and the rustling of the Baobab and Coconut tree leaves. The Cove has only six ocean-facing villa treehouses, with their own private decks. Enjoy panoramic vistas of the East African coastline dotted with pretty Ngalawas (Swahili boats). The Cove is a romantic retreat and is perfect for honeymooners. If your dream is to have a Kenyan beach wedding then you have just found the perfect place for it. Diani Beach has been voted Africa's Top Beach Destination 3 years in a row (beating Mozambique, Sharm El Sheikh, Zanzibar and Cape Town!), and is everything you'd expect from a tropical beach get-away: a gentle breeze whispering across powdery white beaches fringed by coconut trees and lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Diani is on the Kenyan South Coast, a scenic forty-five minute drive from Mombasa. Like any good beach destination - Diani Beach is not short of activities. We can organise kite surfing, diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing and so much more while you stay with us..... Or you could choose to indulge in absolute relaxation during your stay with us. ... more   less
