Description

Diani Beach, on Kenya's southern coast, is home to Almanara Villas, a family-run collection of exclusive, private villas - including the spectacular Presidential villa - situated a mere stone's throw from the beach.

About two hours south of Mombasa, Almanara is the perfect place to end an exciting safari in Kenya, with the Shimba Hills National Reserve providing a backdrop to the Villas. The emphasis at Almanara is exclusivity, it therefore has just six fully inclusive villas, each with a personal chef and maid services to cater to your every whim. Each villa has been lovingly decorated with local furniture and crafts, and is fully air conditioned for those very hot days. Choose to spend your days sunbathing on the roof of the villa or head down to the beach where sun loungers - double and single - are arranged invitingly.

Almanara also boasts a gigantic Presidential villa - straddling the beach, the villa boasts its own deck and good sized pool, and the central area is vast, reaching up to a domed ceiling of glass.

Try your hand at various watersports on the beach during your stay - snorkeling trips to the coral reef and sand island are available, as is diving and the lodge offers kite surfing or wind surfing classes for the beginner. Golf and tennis are available to play as are day trips to the Shimba Hills reserve.

In the evenings, visit the renowned Sails restaurant, which service a variety of pan-African and European cuisine for those who wish to venture out from their luxurious villa!

Accommodation

The six Executive Villas are fully air-conditioned, have three double en-suite bedrooms each and a downstairs cloakroom. The rooms are furnished with bespoke furnishings and have very much a local feel about them. The rooftop terraces and spacious verandas provide the perfect place to enjoy some quiet time with some fabulous views.

The Presidential Villa offers ultimate privacy. The villa has five beautiful, ocean-view double bedrooms and seven bathrooms. There is a very modern feel to the Presidential Villa with its glass walkway and bright atmosphere.

Location & Directions

Diani Beach, Kenya

Located on Diani Beach, south of Mombasa, in Kenya on the east coast of Africa. Diani Beach rests between the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean and open plains of the Shimba Hills National Reserve.

When to go

The rainy season on the Kenyan Coast is generally during May and June. So from July onward the weather is gradually getting hotter and dryer until March/April when it reaches the high 90's (over 40 degrees C). Christmas/New Year is generally considered the peak season and the weather is lovely then with constant sunshine and gentle off shore breezes. If you want clear seas for diving then make your trip after August/Sept.
