Upani in Diani Holiday Villa in Coast Province

Visited by Tripadvisor
Holiday Rental House -
5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 21
Diani Beach, Ukunda, Coast Province
A luxurious 3-house 7-bedroom holiday home in leafy green gardens only 300 meters from the beach (the listing reads 5-bedrooms but in fact has 6, 2 of which are loft bedrooms in an open plan and suitable for singles and older children, we are unable to edit it after we added additional bedrooms to the property). This listing represents 2 of the houses, the Deluxe Pool View Villa with 2 spacious bedrooms downstairs, 1 ensuite with 1 super-king size bed, and the second with a king-size bed and 2 twin beds. A large loft room in the upstairs area makes an additional loft bedroom with king size beds and 2 single beds in 2 corner enclaves with mosquito nets.

If you are a couple or small family, have a look at our cottage rental on the same property at this listing: https://www.tripadvisor.com/VacationRentalReview-g775870-d8423519-Upani_Diani_...
