Beautiful hotel on the beach

Set on the sweeping sands of Diani Beach, the Diani Sea Lodge is comprised of simple whitewashed bungalows surrounded by tropical gardens, providing the perfect settings and accommodation for a tropical holiday experience and is an all inclusive resort.

Relax in the lagoon style pool and enjoy a great programme of activities including beach volleyball and crazy golf. For more serious golfers there is also an 18-hole golf course nearby along with a small selection of shops and bars near the hotel entrance while waters sports can also be organised.

  • Directly on the Indian Ocean
  • Value for money
  • Beautiful landscape setting
  • Very friendly staff

excellent hotel


It is during the busy period that you experience the real value and rating for the hotel/resort/lodge. The resort was a good value and service to my clients. They were very professional and i did not receive any complains at all.

Relaxed and family friendly

Nairobi, Kenya

Stayed at DSR for 8 nights with my family and enjoyed our time there. The resort is set on beautiful grounds and has a lovely swimming area perfect for family water activities. It's proximity to the beach is also ideal. Staff are generally pleasant and helpful, from the kitchen/service team - e.g. Smith at the pancake station and Risper, to the folks at the activities centre - Vincent, Lucy and Millicent. I was also impressed at the variety and quality of meals for a resort of its size. There are certain areas that need improvement however including regular turn down of the rooms, newer beach towels and ice cream offering at the snack bar. We also noticed there was no sign of a life guard at the pool area and the pool service could be much better. Some small improvements should be made with the games such as getting a new dart board and darts. Additionally, we did not get any refill of toiletries in our room for the duration of our stay. Lastly, as I was celebrating my birthday during our stay, my wife had been assured there would be a special treat which never materialized. All in all a good place to stay and I would definitely recommend it.
