I have stayed at Galu many times over the years and each time has been an amazing retreat from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. The cottages and apartments are stunning, with the swahili chic design, African artifacts, and ocean views making Galu my first choice whenever I want to relax for a few days. Over the years I have...

Great place to stay, that allows privacy and that homely feel. I loved the individual attention given by the staff there, as well as the owners. Definitely the place to stay when in Diani. We spent four days there, and loved every moment.

I spent two days in Galu Sea Lodge in January 2013 with a friend of mine. The manager was very fast at replying, the only accommodation still available was a three bedroom flat but since we were only two people, we got a big discount in the price. The place is lovely: everything is well designed and decorated and clean....
