Overview

WaterLovers Beach Resort is a small, owner-run resort situated on Diani Beach, 35km from Mombasa on the south coast of Kenya. Diani Beach spans 25km of palm-fringed, white sand lapped by the warm turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort overlooks a coral reef frequented by sea turtles, dolphins and abundant colourful reef fish, and is set against a stunning backdrop of lush rainforest, home to the extremely rare Colobus monkey. With its pristine beach location, vast range of activities, and well-appointed accommodation, the resort offers recreation and relaxation in an idyllic setting.

Furnished in a contemporary blend of European and African style, communal areas include a restaurant with sea views and a beach bar, along with a stunning infinity pool overlooking the ocean, a spa, and a small boutique selling arts and crafts.

Numerous activities are offered, including kite surfing, windsurfing, diving, snorkelling, and fishing. Golf, tennis, cycling and spa treatments are also available. Guests can take an excursion on a traditional Arabic sailboat or ‘dhow’ to the stunning coral gardens of Kisite Marine National Park, to encounter dolphins in their natural habitat.

Game safaris of one to five days are possible in the main Kenyan National Parks, including the nearby Shimba Hills Reserve, where guests can view elephant, buffalo, leopard, monkey, and abundant birdlife. Further afield is Tsavo, Kenya’s largest national park, and home to the recently rehomed, endangered black rhino as well as elephant, lion, hippo and crocodile. Safaris to Amboseli National Park, famed for its fabulous views of Tanzania’s iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, and to the Masai Mara, known for big game viewing and for the July/September migration, are also possible.

The accommodation at WaterLovers includes eight upmarket and spacious suites, a penthouse apartment, and a self-contained villa, all with lovely design features and ocean views. Each suite sleeps a maximum of three guests in either double or triple formation. The suites have air conditioning, fans and mosquito nets, plus MP3 docking stations, Wi-Fi, and a safe. Outside is a private, ocean-facing veranda. The villa accommodates up to eight guests in three ensuite bedrooms and boasts a fully equipped kitchen, with a private chef available on request. The penthouse apartment accommodates up to eight guests in four double bedrooms with three bathrooms. Built over two floors, it comprises a gym, living area, fully equipped kitchen, dining area and ocean-facing veranda with barbeque.

Families are most welcome, with free accommodation for little ones up to two years of age, and reduced rates for under-fives.

What customers are saying after travelling with Tourdust

  • We had the most incredible time thank you. We loved Karen Blixen camp and felt part of a family there, it was incredibly special. And Breezes was very relaxing.
    We can't fault all the transfers and the moment we were greeted on the tarmac at Nairobi airport we knew we were going to be well cared for.

    Thank you so much to you and all the Tourdust team for making it such a happy and memorable trip.

  • We had an amazing trip. Everything was well thought out and so much fun. What a great way to truly see the country and learn the culture.

    Joseph was the perfect guide. Very kind, professional, knowledgeable and patient. The kids loved Joseph and keep asking when will they meet him again. He found the Big 5 for us which was unforgettable! Please pass along our appreciation to Joseph.

    Maji Moto was also another incredible experience. They had great customer service and we loved experiencing their culture.

    Sunbird was absolutely beautiful and I wish we had more time there. We loved the view of the lake!

    One suggestion to make the trip even better for other guests in the future would be to have a cooler with drinks and snacks in the Jeep at all times because a ton of driving is involved and it would be helpful to have a cold drink and snacks during the long trip.

    Thanks again for organizing this experience of a lifetime for us!

  • I had just the most incredible time on the climb.

    The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.

    George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.
