Diani Reef was the destination for our honeymoon and it was perfect in everyway. From arrival (with cold flannels and champagne) to our departure, the service was second to none. Everyone was happy, friendly and eager to help us in whatever way possible. Our ocean facing room was lovely, and was serviced daily. The pools were both fantastic, we loved...

It is unfortunate that we did not see this resort at its best, it is true to say that it is looking a little tired in places and in need of an overhaul which is not surprising really as we were told it is the oldest hotel here. During our stay in March the Hotel was only about a third...

Diani Reef excels itself in every way. The service was first class, the staff are extremely attentive. The location is superb. In my opinion the hotel deserves its 5 star status. We had a standard room on the top floor which was very clean and comfortable with a great view of the hotel grounds and ocean. The hotel is unique...

“Rooms closer to the pool and ocean.”
  • Two minitue walk to the beach, and i could literally dive in the pool from my room.
  • Where all the magic happens.
  • I think i would call it the dinning area and chill zone area
  • Chill zone.
  • The bathtub in the rooms are exactly like the ones in the spar.
