We have just returned from the most amazing 2 week stay at Kenyaways. It is the perfect place to unwind. We arrived feeling pretty exhausted and left feeling completely refreshed and rejuvenated. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, especially Stephen the manager who was always happy to answer the queries we had and to help book excursions. The rooms...

For two weeks we have been staying in an apartment Kenyaways. A simple place where kiters meet Diani. You can navigate in a large area with very few kiters. The school also has aistentes Extreme H2O to help with kites. The kites can be prepared and stored inside the hotel, in the shade of the coconut trees. All the hotel...

We had a great stay at Kenyaways. Super friendly staff, big and clean rooms. We had the apartment with kitchenette: big, clean and so beautiful! Their bar and restaurant has lovely and cheap food. Great surf and kite spot, with good kite teachers (dankeschön Kathi!) and rental kites&boards.

We hadn't booked. We arrived at 2 in the morning. The night watch (Joseph) was shocked. He made some calls, we agreed we'd sleep on the pool side beds. He sat by us and kept to monkeys and baboons away from us. We awoke to birds chirping and monkeys rustling through the trees, just delightful. By the time the day...

We (a family of 4) stayed at Kenyaways in July in the Bandit apartment. We all loved it - the apartment was beautifully decorated and set up really well for a family, it was great to have our own kitchen to make our own meals (though the food and prices at Lymingtons restaurant were pretty unbeatable). The grounds were quiet...

Really affordable. Great for kite and wind surfing. They have a crew that can train you, classes, equipment, the full works. Very affordable. BEST. MEALS. EVER. Really simple. Nothing fancy, but clean and really professional. Also. They have a great Masseuse called Mary who can do a great Swedish Massage for about Ksh 2,000 or USD 20

This place is just amazing! We stayed for 10 days in 2014 and I am still dreaming about this place. The kitespot was great, the rooms were clean and cozy and the food was good. I hope to come back here one day! Regards from Norway

Kenyaways is a gorgeous little hotel with a really relaxed and intimate vibe. It is situated right on the beach, allowing for easy access for swimming and long morning and evening walks. As it is a little further away from the main part of Diani beach there are way fewer hawkers and the atmosphere is much nicer. The hotel itself...

A tropical paradise. Very nice staff! Very chilled atmosphere. We stayed there for 4 days and wished we stayed longer. I woke up early in the mornings to do a workout on a empty beach. Absolutely an amazing experience.
