Truly our home away from home. Happy to go back every year. Great for the kids! Friendly staff who always remember our needs. Very comfortable and spacious. Would not think of spending a night in the South Coast at any other hotel.

Room tip: Villas at the from are great. Apartments on the 3rd and 4th floor have fantastic views

We were one of the first guests at Lantana and we continue to go there at least 2 to 3 times a year! The service is great, staff are friendly and it is situated on one of the best beaches in the world! Lantana works very well for children with the option of self catering and a restaurant for those lazy days! We recommend Lantana to everyone! We love Lantana!

Exactly what I needed for a weekend getaway with friends.
With just a 40 minute flight from Nairobi, and only 10 minutes by car from the Ukunda airstrip, Lantana Galu is very accessible. I recall grabbing my kikoi, catching a flight and being on the beach in under 3 hours. It’s a great feeling, especially when you’re there for just the weekend!
The bone white beach, azure waters and lush gardens lend themselves naturally for a tropical beach holiday but Lantana Galu also offer the perfect combination of accommodations: well placed Villas and stylish Apartments set in beautiful gardens on the waters edge. All rooms whether in the Villas or the Apartments are spacious, clean and well appointed with a distinct yet subtle Swahili flavour. Very comfortable.
And the food… absolutely superb. Fancy doing your own sea-food beach bbq? Not a problem. Can’t be bothered? Not a problem - the poolside restaurant is fantastic! Sipping cocktails at the beach bar… it goes without saying!
In a nutshell, Lantana Galu offers first class bare-foot comfort in a most idylic setting. I’d thoroughly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a friendly, flexible beach holiday (with all the creature comforts and more!). I’m going back for a week or longer next time!

Whether you stay in an apartment or a villa - Lantana caters to all need!! Our family goes to Diani at least 3 times a year and it is the ONLY place we stay. My 3 year old son said this morning that he wants to have his birthday party at his second home... LANTANA!! This resort caters for all trips - business, family, friends and we have been there for all our occasions. We celebrated my husband's 40th there and most recently had a lovely family trip for a few days. During the December holidays we always stay there and end up extending our trip!

Room tip: I prefer the apartments on the 4th floor and villas no 6, 8, 5 and 3!

This is our 4th visit to Lantana and it will not be our last. It is the perfect combination of self catering and a hotel. We can stay home in the lovely flat and cook (and someone will clean up the next day) or eat in the restaurant by the pool. Our daughter who is 4 loves staying here and refers to it as "my Mombassa" how could we go anywhere else. There is no way you could stay at Lantana and be disappointed. Thanks once again to all the staff for making our stay as memorable as ever.
