Diamond Beach Village, Kenya

Perfect African beach retreat

  • Diamond Beach Village, Kenya

WHY WE LIKE IT

There are no cars on Lamu or Manda, the only form of transport is donkey or boat, both of which can be an experience in themselves. The pace of life is inevitably slow and relaxed. 

HOTEL DESCRIPTION

Working very closely with the local Swahili people taking into account their culture using local methods and materials to create a refreshing, eco-friendly, alternative style holiday. The lodge is located on the beach front with amazing views of the open ocean, Lamu island, Shela village and dhows sailing past. It is the perfect place to relax for days or weeks, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. 

ACTIVITIES

The ‘yoga studio’, now a chill out area for guests, with swinging chairs and beds, a large library and games. The shaded beach beds are the best way for lazing the days away, with cold drinks offered throughout the day and served on the beach. Or have a relaxing full body massage and pampering services. Hire the resort’s boat fora day on the sea.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Diamond Beach is 40 minutes from Lamu Airport by boat and transfers are  by boat trip. There are weekly flights from Mombasa with Safarilink and daily flights from Malindi. Lamu can also be reached by road, though, it is 7 bumpy hours from Mombasa and 4 hours from Malindi.
