We have just returned from our honeymoon in Kenya. After an absolutely horrific journey with a 19hr delay we finally arrived at the Cove. This place instantly put us at peace and we felt all the stress just melt away. Our tree house was amazing, rustic and romantic. We had a giant four poster bed with a lovely mosquito net....

This was a wonderful quiet location. All the good bits have been mentioned in other reviews however I just wanted to warn anyone going not to give your email or telephone number to a member of staff - he will email and telephone you begging for money with all sorts of stories - which leaves a bit of a sour...

Wow Wow Wow. Pure paradise......... After booking 2 weeks at The Cove and reading all the reviews posted I honestly can't understand some peoples views of the accommodation. I'll get the very few and minor negatives out of the way first, but please do not let these put you off of travelling here. Ok....well...the food!! Not that great, hardly any...

Having said that we have stayed in some beautiful 5*...

We have just returned from Kenya, where we spent one week on safari in Amboseli/Masai Mara and the second week on the coast at the Cove Retreat. We had the most wonderful experience, a real once in a lifetime trip. Both the safari and the Cove where deserted due to the troubles that Kenya has recently been having!!! We saw...

We stayed in The Cove for seven nights for our honeymoon. We found it extremely relaxing and laid back, at times a little too laid back! Akuna-matata! The staff were lovely, but one day we were sitting at the pool side and Stephanie the manager started shouting at the staff about working harder in front of everyone! The staff there...

We were both tired and my husband-to-be was asleep in the back of our private transport to the The Cove. He was soon woken up when we exited Diani and the road suddenly ran out...

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
