The car journey from Wilson airport to Almanara was under 10 mins which was great not to have to travel to far, and it was such a nice touch to be greeted with a cocktail and cool towel by Lucy and the team on arrival. The amazing service continued throughout the whole trip from every single one. Nothing I asked...

I will start with the location which is nigh on perfect. This a beautiful section of Diani Beach - gorgeous white sand bordered by palm trees and the calm, warm waters of the Indian Ocean with never more than a handful of people in sight. Tremendous thought and expense went into the design and building of this property and the...

We spent two weeks in Kenya in January, 8 days on safari and then 4 nights at Almanara. The accommodation in a separate house was first class - an own butler, chef and pool-side bartender. The food that the chef Malaki prepared excellent food, including traditional Kenyan food and lobster. The pool was in practice a private pool where Julius...

Our week stay in a villa was perfect in every way. The setting, accommodation, food and service left us wanting for nothing. The villas are large for just a couple but it's nice to have the living and deck spaces for dining and relaxing. It's a short stroll to the endless stretch of white sand beach. We arranged kiting with...

The very spacious, luxurious, and stylish villas surpassed our expectations. We were met by owner Leo on arrival who made us feel very welcome and gave us a tour of the villa, set in beautiful tropical gardens around a stunning swimming pool. Thoughtful attention to detail, and very friendly service in the very comfortable villas made us not want to...

So my wife and I celebrate our birthday within four days of each other and therefore make a point of going down to the beach during this period in December. We booked Almanara in September and I can state unequivocally that web pics don't do the resort any justice as it blows you away from the moment you arrive. Since...

We spent 10 days here after a safari in the Masai Mara and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The property is situated overlooking the Indian Ocean and is so beautiful, spacious and very stylishly decorated but what really elevates it is the staff .... from Dorcas an amazing chef who seemed to be able to cater...

A perfect complement to the preceding Safari holiday. A luxurious, relaxing but not pretentious environment. Really friendly staff, who are very attentive. Highlights were the outstanding adjacent Diani Beach (unsurpassed in our experience), and the magnificent food (especially for fish lovers), prepared with real care and culinery skill by the in-house staff.

The minute you walk into this beautiful loving place you are embraced by the owners and the outstanding staff! I can truly say that Almanara is paradise, we stayed for one week and had the best time ever! The food in the Hotel and at their restaurant Sails on the beach is to die for, my favorite: ginger crab.

We spent 4 relaxing days at Almanara, in one of the luxury 3-bedroom villas, which came complete with chef, housekeeper, and other staff (we opted for full board as we had our children in tow). The villa was 1 minute's walk from the swimming pool, which was perfect for young kids - we literally spend entire days there, made all...
