Just got back from an amazing stay at the Cove. We weren't sure what to expect and after a long day travelling after safari the doubts began to kick in when we travelled along the bumpy road to the cove. As soon as we arrived we were completely blown away! The cove truly is a very special place. If you...

Myself and my fiancee stayed at the cove for 10 nights after an exhausting 5 night safari, I had read the reviews before going and was confident that it would be amazing but it surpassed all my expectations (and as a former travel agent i have a lot!!). On the drive from Mombassa airport I did get a bit nervy...

On the plus side it really is quiet, and the staff are very friendly but 2 major drawbacks: the food was awful and at low tide the beach is terrible. Our house was set back from the beach and did not have a good view. The overall cleanliness was not great. We stayed one night and moved on, however I...

Don't be put off by the remote location as once here, you have everything you need. The treehouse (no 1) enjoyed a superb position on the beach with a view of the African sunrise from the huge four poster bed. The staff were excellent and attentive without being intrusive and made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed our stay....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
COVE TREE HOUSES - DIANI BEACH, KENYA Our small intimate lodge is nestled in its own private cove, just 12kms from Diani Beach Town - but well away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. The Cove offers guests exclusivity, excellent service, and the peace and quiet of a magical retreat! Here, time doesn't matter, and our team will work around your schedule. Your long, lazy beach walks will be uninterrupted, and the only sounds you will hear are the wish-wash of the tide, the cry of distant fish eagles and the rustling of the Baobab and Coconut tree leaves. The Cove has only six ocean-facing villa treehouses, with their own private decks. Enjoy panoramic vistas of the East African coastline dotted with pretty Ngalawas (Swahili boats). The Cove is a romantic retreat and is perfect for honeymooners. If your dream is to have a Kenyan beach wedding then you have just found the perfect place for it. Diani Beach has been voted Africa's Top Beach Destination 3 years in a row (beating Mozambique, Sharm El Sheikh, Zanzibar and Cape Town!), and is everything you'd expect from a tropical beach get-away: a gentle breeze whispering across powdery white beaches fringed by coconut trees and lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Diani is on the Kenyan South Coast, a scenic forty-five minute drive from Mombasa. Like any good beach destination - Diani Beach is not short of activities. We can organise kite surfing, diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing and so much more while you stay with us..... Or you could choose to indulge in absolute relaxation during your stay with us. ... more   less
