With Diani Beach itself to one side and the Shimba Hills National Reserve to the other, Almanara Diani Beach is a five star resort of the highest order.
The main lodge consists of a multitude of high quality facilities, including the KiLeo Water Sports Centre, Cloud Nine Health Spa, the Sails Beach Bar and Restaurant, a shaded pool and Diani beach itself. The bar and restaurant takes its name from the sails that festoon its ceiling, providing both shade and the perfect environment within which to enjoy a house cocktail, a snack or a three course meal. The beach is a joy, the spa first class, its cream walls and matching linen a fine contrast to the dark Swahili wood features.
