After a long vacation I got to relax by the beautiful ocean and feel pampered by the staff at Waterlovers! You are ON THE BEACH when you book a room here and everyone has amazing views. Spending the day reading on the beach, getting fresh coconut pina coladas, and dipping into the water was surreal. Everything is well thought-out and has beautiful touches. I even got a massage to really get relaxed! What a place!

We just returned after at 4 night stay at Waterlovers Beach Resort. The person I booked my 11 day Safari, recommended it. He said you will need sometime to rest after the Safari, and this was the perfect place. The grounds are beautiful. The sand is white and the ocean is crystal clear and in the mid 70’s. All the staff was excellent. The two women who manage it, the restaurant and bar staff and the room stewards. They even managed to save us money. We were scheduled to have a PCR test set up by my T.O., but they knew that I only needed an Antigen test to get back in the USA. Saved us almost $200. The great thing, is they will arrange for a tech to come to the resort to do your test. It also was our Anniversary and they set us for a romantic dinner on their private deck and decorated the front of our villa. On our beach walk on the morning of our last day, we saw newly hatched turtle make the trek to the water. I highly recommend this resort.

I spent 4 night there at the end of July and should have stayed longer! Next time, I will. What an amazing resort. The staff feels like family and the property was paradise. The suite was gorgeous and my balcony view was heaven. The beach was beautiful and the staff helped me arrange transportation to go horseback riding on the beach! I wasn’t feeling well one day and the staff was so caring and made sure I had whatever I needed. Top notch service!

We spent 10 days in this paradise and can not say how much we enjoyed. If you want to feel special, pampered from the stuff, have dinner on the beach, amazing food and cocktails, privacy this is the place to be. We walked down the beach and didn't find nicer hotel than this one! Even the beach boys were nice, If you buy something they will leave you alone till the end of your vacation. But most of all they just want to talk, most of them never traveled so they are interested where are you from, how did you get here...so don't be scared or rude, they don't mean anything bad. Resort is 5*, but staff is 10*, they are the one that makes difference there-honestly! They remember your name, they know what you drink and like and they really work hard always with smile on their face. This place is amazing to combine with safari (Tsavo East and Taita Hills) and Dhow safari. Ask at reception to book you small day trip to "Kongo" river to see sunset and to feed Busch baby's (it's close to hotel). Visit Cave restaurant to make your trip special (restaurant have free pickup).

We ended our honeymoon at Waterlovers Beach Resort. It was amazing! Our suite was so nice. The staff decorated our room with hearts all over, so cute. The staff was super friendly and extremely helpful, whether it was moving beach chairs, chasing away monkeys, or taking your pictures, they were always there for you. It was a wonderful place to stay at.
