Accommodation Facts

No. of rooms: 170

It’s the location that really sets this place apart. It’s tucked away in tropical gardens that step down to a sandy beach. What’s more, you’ve got prime safari territory on your doorstep, so if seeing a bit of Kenya’s wildlife is what you’re after, this place is a must-stay.

Looks-wise, the All Inclusive Diani Sea Resort has a touch of colonial romanticism about it. Its whitewashed, russet-roofed façade opens up to a lobby with a mural-topped reception, simple columns and big indoor palms.

The restaurants, too, are elegantly simple in style. The main eatery is a buffet affair set behind archways with tables dressed in white, orange and pale blue. Meanwhile, for favourites like pizzas, spaghetti and sandwiches, the poolside snack bar is spot on.

As for things to do, there’s plenty in the way of entertainment. Set in a clearing in the heart of the garden, the swimming pool should be your first port of call. If you’re after something a little more adventurous, though, there’s a PADI diving school on site, plus windsurfing, snorkelling and even deep sea fishing trips.

Are there any deals out there like this to Nairobi?

Things to bear in mind... It's the rainy season. It doesn't quite include all as you will need to buy an entry visa, pay exit tax, and buy malaria medication. That said, it's a wonderful country.

You may be wise to get yellow fever injections as well. I went in April about 4 years ago and stayed at the bamburi beach hotel. The place was amazing and I would go back to Kenya in a heartbeat!
Also if booking a safari it is fine to book with locals rather than reps

Travelling direct from the UK to Kenya you do not need to have YF. It's an advisory not a mandatory. There hasn't been YF in Mombasa for years. Individuals should consult their GP or travel nurse.

I have been to Kenya twice and it is an amazing place.....The problem now is that there is a lot of political unrest and it can be very dangerous to venture outside the complex which somewhat defeats the purpose of visiting another country..

The area around the mosque where there was some unrest is not an area where you would find tourists. There are many hundreds of tourists all enjoying their holidays in hotels on both the north and south coasts. The majority go off on safari and do local trips. As long as you keep to the beaten track and are street-wise (as in any large City) you will be fine. The dos/don't s are - don't walk on the beach at night, always book a taxi to take you/pick you up at night, don't wear jewellery when out and about, don't flash the gadgets, and only take a small amount of cash out with you at any one time.

Sorry folks for the duplicate posts. I am only posting once, I promise!

Just out of interest where did/do you want to venture? Apart from the beach and the road up to the shops where is there to venture? I wouldn't recommend wandering about in Mombasa now or before.

Voted hot cracking deal.

Haller Park, Bombalulu Cultural Centre, Akamba Woodcarvers Co-op, Fort Jesus, market, old town, Tusks, Swaminarayan Temple, Mombasa Sports Club to watch a game of cricket, Shimba Hills, game reserves - there's loads to do if people want it.

YF is not mandatory. if you were at risk it would be.

"Recommended for all travelers ≥9 months of age, except as mentioned below. Generally not recommended for travelers whose itinerary is limited to the following areas: the entire North Eastern Province; the states of Kilifi, Kwale, Lamu, Malindi, and Tanariver in the Coastal Province; and the cities of Mombasa and Nairobi (see Map 3-16)."

Yesterday I booked this holiday but leaving on 26th May. £637 pp online via Thomson, but went into a branch and they matched that and had a £30 pp discount offer in store, so total for 2 was £1214. Just need a good deal on a safari now!

Have a look on Trip Advisor. There's plenty of advice regarding safari operators on there. Things to consider - budget, road or air, lodge or luxury camp, private or shared safari, how long, what do you want to see? Contact a few and see what they can offer you. Better to do it now rather than waste time in resort.

No thanks. The occasional Somali & Kenyan muslim convert thug terrorist attacks in Kenya happen not infrequently enough for me.
The massacre at that Mall last year was last straw for me, although they have tried to crack down on the areas where the psychotic bigots congregate

If we all stayed home, the psychotic bigots would win. I grew up in a time when the IRA tried similar. Now its the turn of the Malaysian people to suffer. Sorry, but no, I'll still be travelling.

Well I thought that visiting other counties is about seeing them and sampling their lifestyle amongst other things, if all you want is spoon feeding in a beach resort with egg and chips for food then save you're money and have a day at the seaside in the good old UK... I ventured out on safari in two different places...went fishing with the locals...went shopping both in villages and town, Nairobi and Mombasa both, but then there was no political unrest, it was a very stable country and foreigners where welcome everywhere, now its a different story, politicaly its not good and visitors are now " targets " not friends...

I have been to this resort and can highly recommend it. one of my favourite holidays. please note thst to get to Masi Mara safari you will have to get a plane so is expensive or a 1 day coach however the local safaris are just as good and a lot cheaper. beach boys are a pain but if you find a good one (we found one called eddy) get them to take you to their village

SewerSide I always used Julius when staying on the South Coast. If you aren't happy about sending payment over, then just email him and he will send a driver to pick you up, sort out a safari for you and you pay a deposit, when you come back you pay the balance if you are happy with the trip.

You can still do all these things now. Do the local villages see you as a target (apart from trying to sell you things)? So apart from wandering about Nairobi and Mombasa which I wouldn't have done before or now not much has changed. Just when you said 'venture out' I thought maybe it was something I had missed out on.

Sea fishing was an great experience once I'd emptied my lunch over the side! Safari is a must too. We even went with the locals to a party at a community center/bar on the night before their day off. Had a great time, but got stung a little getting back as the (unofficial) taxi wanted $40 to take us to the hotel.

Another cracking deal from SunshineStacey! Heat & thanks form all of us that get value from your efforts.

Keep up the good work X) X) X) X) X)

I thought this was a great deal & have always wanted to go to kenya, but tbh th comments here have put me off i'll need to do a bit of research before going for this now

Fab fab deal, heat added! PLEASE let there be deals like this for Mexico or Kenya or anywhere else awesome when we come to book our honeymoon for early September or end of Oct or November! We're trying to be brave and hold out for a great deal as we're so flexible on date!

Wait until you get there before booking a safari, you will get a much better deal! Even if you want to book through your rep when there, barter with her /him and you will get a better price! You will absolutely love it, best holiday i ever had!

excellent deal, wish a similar deal can be found in June as that's when I can get leave from work.

Kenya - Hakuna matata!

Hot but take a rain coat and some earplugs because you'll get sick of that Jambo song they play everywhere nonstop. Is a great country. I had scary moments or there in 2009 but I loved it.

Haha, the ferry crossing costs about 50p. Nice beach bar in Diana, Forty Theives. Sit in the sand and enjoy a Tusker. Watch out for the beach girls though!!

I have on my I pod! The Safari Sound Band!

There's something wrong with my equipment. ,it keeps reporting old comments. Pole sana!

Thank for posting, place looks lovely.

Me and my partner are looking for a delayed honeymoon (just can't get time off at the same time)
We've finally set a date of mid-July for 7 nights, but are stuck on whete to go for that honeymoon break.

Currently looking at Dubai, or Thailand (Bangkok or Phuket), but still looking for other destinations which has the best package/price (trying not to go over £3k, but keeping the added luxury of nice hotel/nicer room/half-full board or all inclusive if possible) - so very much open to ideas before booking

If anyone can give any tips or recommendation would be very appreciated

JT Safaris just outside the hotel complex is supposedly the best. I'm going to this hotel for 7 nights in 2 weeks and will definitely be booking with them. Reviews are fab:

Yellow Fever is spread by the bites of infected Mosquitos. No infected Mosquitos = no Yellow Fever. The last outbreak in Kenya was almost 20 years ago. The World Health Organisation are confident that the East is free of Yellow Fever. It is actually believed that Kenya is completely free of the disease, but the West remains high-risk until conclusive evidence can be gathered (it's an ongoing project between the WHO and the Kenyan government - looking for something that's not there can take a long time).

It isn't foolish to skip the Yellow Fever vaccine if travelling to the East of the country, though there's certainly no harm in erring on the side of caution. There is no scientific data to suggest it is anything other than a waste of money, but if it helps you sleep easier then it's probably worth it.
