Just an amazing place and people. And the food - mama mia!!! You will feel cared for, welcomed and your only duty is to be relaxed and keep your daily breakfast away from Monkeys while watching the ocean:) . Probably the best place I have stayed. /Anita

This was not my first time at waterlovers and it’s certainly not my last. From the moment I arrived I felt so welcomed here. All the staff here are so polite and friendly, you really feel at home. The food is also amazing, a great vegetarian menu and also delicious breakfast. My highlight was probably the lobster.

We spent 5 nights at Waterlovers on Dec 2020. Our room and terrace had stunning views over the gorgeous private beach. The staff made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel has a small exclusive feel to it. The food was good but we chose to eat out most nights for fun and a change. There are several excellent restaurants a short and inexpensive taxi ride away. The beach sellers were very respectful and they don’t come onto the private beach of the hotel grounds so it was all very peaceful. The hotel is located on the very best stretch of Diani beach. Honestly, Waterlovers is a little slice of paradise and we can’t recommend it enough. Can’t wait to return!
