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.

Excellent team of staff always willing to help and make the stay as comfortable as possible, There is ease of access to many facilities and food places around this boutique hotel hence gives that opportunity to experience Diani.. The quiet and serene environment perfect for rest.

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

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...

The Flamboyant used to be one of our favourite relaxing destinations to get away from the stress and noise we have in Nairoby and recover. Unfortunately they seem to have changed their target group. Our relaxing long weekend was not possible. They had a sports tournament at the beach, right in front of the hotel. Including sound system. The beach...

The Flamboyant is a small boutique hotel located on Diani Beach. It is part of an area that has Ali Barbour's Cave restaurant and Forty Thieves Beach Bar. The room had a great view of the pool.

From the time you check in to the stewards, the place is just the perfect place home away from home. The rooms are beautiful clean with a great sea view. The food is wonderful and can recommend this place anytime.

We stayed four nights at Flamboyant. It is a lovely place with direct access to the beach. It's even very close to the Forty thieves bar and the Ali Barbour's cave restaurant. The food at the hotel is very good! The service and the staff was excellent. We stayed in room nr 2. A big and nice room, clean and...
