Nice small place just by the sea. Felt that staying in somebody's house. Very relaxing. If you like water sports there is a center on the beach. Service of staff at Flamboyant very nice. Close to nice beachresturant fourth thieves which is one of the best and the famous Ali Batbour Cave restaurant is next door.

Services There are no dustbins in the rooms, no drinking water is provided and the wifi is extremely sketchy. I had to fight with management to get one bottle of water. The room was fairly okay, nothing much in terms of space or location and the bathrooms were also overrated by Lonely Planet. I suspect LP has a fondness for...

Sorry to have to mention this here. But the wifi service is terrible.. please do get it fixed. I have stayed here several times and find this a draw back. Otherwise location is great! Rooms are very comfortable.

A beautiful boutique hotel, perfectly placed on Diani Beach. The hotel is very peaceful, but is right next door to lots of activities - Diani Marine for scuba, Skydive Diani for adrenaline, 40 Thieves Bar for nightlife, etc. Great staff, lovely ambience - will definitely return!

Manager demanded I leave and threatened to call police for merely walking into the restaurant and asking to see the beach first. Avoid this place at all costs of this is how they choose to treat potential customers. Once again, the absolute worst customer service I have ever had in my life

Located 100 yards from the beach, this hotel is ideally located for both water sports and sun bathing. The beach is safe, within the coral reef, and beautifully white and clean. All, water sports are catered for by their own water sports centre and the hotel staff can book whatever sport you want from scuba diving to parachuting; just ask....

My last trip to the Kenya coast once again took me to Diani and while I visited some of the 'old friends' I stayed in two places not sampled before. I must admit that while I heard of Forty Thieves Beach Bar and of course the Ali Barbours Cave Restaurant, Flamboyant had not featured on my horizon. And, I am...
