I stayed there for two weeks with some friends and it was easy going and relaxed, while there was an attention to detail in the way the rooms were set up and the hotel was run that you rarely see in a family run beach hotel. The staff were all friendly and clued in, and there was plenty to do,... More

An excellent, family run B&B for people who enjoy a good, casual holiday with no hassle. We occupied a small apartment , with all necessary facilities. No view of the beach but plenty of monkeys, including colubus passing by.

Great value, very well run hotel at a great location. You're a bit trapped there, but the food is great and being trapped is probably a blessing. Plenty of palm trees to give you shade, and a very relaxing hammock too. Great coffee, oh my god.

If you are looking for something unique, utterly charming and simply out of this world Kenyaways is for you. After a gap of 46 years I returned to Diani with my daughter to show her where I had grown up. The hotel I had stayed in as a child no longer exists, so we took a random chance with Kenyaways....

Kennaways is an incredibly nice place to stay with good value rooms and food. Situated on one of the best most pristine beaches in Kenya with friendly hosts and lots to do! The wasini dhow is a must and for the younger kite surfing!

I have stayed at several different hotels on Diani/Galu Beach and will definitely return to this one provided I can book one of the upstairs rooms with the fantastic outside verandah area. What I liked most about Kenyaways apart from the great verandah was: - proximity to the beach. At night we could hear the waves pounding on the shore... More

I stayed here with a friend last week and had a lovely time. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, the room was a good size and it was great having sea views (we stayed in Crossbow). The restaurant attached to the hotel served good food and a nice breakfast. It's possible to have massages and treatments at the hotel... More

Nice place to stay. There is a kiteschool on the premises which makes that there a lot of travelers. I went here to kite. Keep in mind this is tidal beach. No beach is left when it is high tide. There a lot of beach sellers. They are very persistent. The rooms have no airconditioning and the pool is small.... More

We spent 2 weeks in September at Kenyaways in the apartment room. Very friendly staff, check-in/out went smooth and a great restaurant with great value food and wine section made it perfect for us to wind down after 2 months of traveling. The kite station is conveniently located on the property and the kite staff is very helpful and easy... More
