    Amazing place to stay, right on the beach. Delicious food any time of the day, great drinks, great massage and really friendly staff and helpful management. Also a perfect spot to kitesurf at with their water sports shop just down the beach.

    Visited Diani Blue several times between 2015 and 2017 and have always had a great time at this small and quiet boutique hotel on the beautiful Diani coast. Its restaurant next to the beach is amazing as well! I will be back.

    Diani Blue is a very special place, with just six rooms and incredible ocean views. Boutique luxury at its best: I felt like a princess. The setting is beautiful, from the tropical gardens to the gorgeous swimming pool, the food is excellent (try the crab!)...More
