If you’ve never visited Kenya, it can often be difficult sifting through the many holiday options and deciding which holiday resort is best suited to you. Diani Resort is one of our favourites and promises a memorable travel experience. But what makes it so special?
Situated on the South Coast of Mombasa, overlooking the dazzling white sands of Diani Beach, it is one of the most exclusive locations for Kenyan beach holidays. The inviting warm waters of the Indian Ocean, glistening turquoise and jade, create a perfectly tranquil setting for a wonderfully relaxing African holiday.
The strong coastal winds and low tides provide excellent Kite and Windsurfing conditions for all levels. The stunning coral reef provides a superb opportunity to witness the beautifully coloured marine life off the Kenyan coast. For the more adventurous who want to dive deeper, explore the plane wreck amongst the 25 world class dive sites.
Cruising at sunrise or sunset for a spot of dolphin and whale shark spotting, a trip on one of the Dhow sailing boats is hard to beat for creating those special holiday memories.
Golf, tennis, horse riding and more, Diani has a huge variety of activities to suit all the family. A trip to see the protected Colobus Monkey’s is a must, whilst a tour of an ancient “Kaya” forest will help you learn the origins of the coastal tribes. If you want to meet the locals in their homes, bike tours inland to local villages provide an option for the more adventurous traveler to explore the area.
No trip to Kenya is complete without a visit to one of Kenyas National Parks to witness the wild animals in their natural environment.
