The service was amazing. We stayed for 10 days and every day the hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. We were also celebrating a birthday on one of the days and everyone from the front office team, housekeeping, the bar tender at the pool bar, the pool attendants, the staff at the spa, the hostess and waiters all worked to make the day special. Despite the hotel being quite busy because it is popular with guests from all over, we felt valued and well taken care of.

Hotel's Favourite
I loved the time that I had spend in the Hotel. It was the best 10 days experience I have had in the south coast. The staff was my absolute favorite part because they were all extremely kind, open hearted, patient and resourceful and they provided the best hospitality. The food was beyond amazing as well as the safety measures taken. One other favorite part of my trip there was the Entertainment which was provided by the Zuri team. this team was very special and remarkable in terms of performance, friendliness and having fun. The team really showed my Family and I a really good time and I appreciate their hard work and resentment. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the South coast, Diani and I would visit there again.

Spend 2 weeks on the east coast of Kenya. Diani Reef Beach Hotel was a good choice. Especially I enjoyed my stay there thanks to the Zuri Team, the dancers of this team were amazing. I had a lot of fun and entertainment with them. If you go to Diani Reef you will not feel alone not even a day because there are people from the Zuri team and also people that work in the Hotel that will do a lot of activities during the day and you can enjoy. The food was good and I liked it especially because the cooker was Indian and my favorite food is Indian food, so perfect for me. The rooms have a good view to the beach and also to the garden that looks absolutely amazing. I totally recommend Diani Reef for the views of the garden, pool, beach and also for the hotel staff. I really enjoyed my stay there.

We had a delicious vegetarian Lunch on Easter Monday at the sea side restaurant on our request thanks to the brilliant Executive Chef Mr. Puneet Sethi and his team. The service was very good and the place was very clean with all the hygienic standards were nicely maintained. We had tasty Dal Makhni, Vegetable Jalfrezi,, Pappadums, Rotis, simply mouth watering Vegetable Biriyani. etc. The food was hotly and well served .. The atmosphere was amazing since our table was set just facing the sea front side with lovely breeze. The Beach was clean too, We enjoyed our wonderful experience at the hotel this time for lunch but we had stayed here before many years back. Subhash Modi - Former International Cricket Umpire
