Waterlovers is a great choice for those looking for a little more intimacy and privacy on a stunning stretch of Kenya’s southern coast. The owners, Riccardo and Valentina, planned and constructed every single detail themselves, as a result of their passion for the ocean and their motto “come as a guest and leave as a friend” is enforced with extremely friendly staff and warm hospitality.


Diani Beach stretches roughly 25 kilometres of white sand, framed by crystal waters and reefs, home to sea turtles, dolphins, and tropical fish. To top it off, the beach is bordered by a lush green rain forest that homes the Colobus monkeys and other cool traces of wildlife. The staff at Waterlovers are happy to assist or organise any activities, water sports, excursions or spa treatments for guests during their stay.


Waterlovers is formed of eight glamourous suites, making the lodge feel intimate and private. The lodge has a waterfront restaurant offering an exotic and Swahili-infused cuisine. The turtle-shaped infinity pool looks to the Indian ocean, with a crystal clear blue lagoon and reef metres away. Waterlovers is also involved in responsible tourism projects, working on minimizing waste, reducing pollution, monitoring the environmental impact and many more.


Each suite has views over the glistening Indian Ocean from their own private verandah. They are each decorated with local materials, colours and furnishings, combining the owners design visions with local Swahili elegance. In addition to its suites, Waterlovers has a deluxe ocean view villa which can accommodate eight people. This is the height of luxury, as a fully equipped kitchen with a private chef is on your doorstep.

Intimate feel with incredible hosts and owners
