What an amazing place - a boat ride or plane lands on the beach below the dunes, breezy accomodation with incredible views over swathes of the tana river delta and Africa. 5 star hotel standard food and service by lovely staff and the lodge manager florian. We've booked to go back, and want it all to ourselves! Ideal honeymoon, 50th and most wonderfully private and beautiful

This was our second visit. The location is unique with the the endless beach and ocean on one side and the quiet and still waters of the delta on the other. The rooms are located on the dunes and are of a high standard. Food is excellent - fresh seafood every day. And if you want a buzz he sand yachting on the beach is thrilling. Unlike any other beach property in Kenya.

Room Tip: All of the bandas are fine. The main thing is do you want to face the open sea or face the other way and look up the quiet creeks.

We came here to escape from the world and it was perfect! We had miles and miles of beach to ourself and the manager Florian was fantastic! Literally i don't think we could have chosen a more romantic or relaxing place to escape from the world! i have been to most of the beaches in Kenya and i have to say that Delta Dunes is BY FAR my favorite! :) thanks to the team for making our three nights just magical - we will be back!

Room Tip: We had the honeymoon which was incredible! :)

This was our second visit to Delta Dunes, an amazing lodge on the Indian Ocean. Accessible only by boat, the lodge is remote and yet so wonderfully upscale. The rooms are amazing with gorgeous views of the Tana River and the Indian Ocean. Decorated in natural materials found around the camp, there is no glass but simply wonderful thatched roof huts . Think Robinson Crusoe. The food is fresh, innovative and extremely good, with fresh fish and crab caught that morning. The staff are quick to cater to your every whim. Delta Dunes is a rare gem that is remote, beautiful and utterly charming.

Stayed: June 2013, travelled with friends

Delta Dunes Lodge is definitely in the middle of nowhere. To get there from Tsavo Nationalpark we chartered a private plan from Air Lamu, that took us right onto the beach in front of the lodge. That was a great experience in itself. Gettig up through the Dunes to where the lodge is, requires a bit of fitness and you better wear proper shoes as the sand can get a bit hot around noon time. Delta Dunes is a true Robinson Crusoe barefoot paradise with 360 degree lookouts on true wilderness. The Indian Ocean to the East, the Tana River Delta to the West and and endless dense forest / jungle inbetween - fantastic, but you have to love this kind of rustic charme and be prepared for visits of baboons or vervet monkeys as the bungalows have no doors or windows. The staff of the lodge look after you very well though and will probably take care of unwanted visitors before you even know they were there :-).
We loved the walks on the beach, miles & miles all to yourself in both directions, we loved the fantastic meals that were served in different locations everytime and the company of the managers as we were the only guests at the time and we loved our boat trip on the Tana River into the sunset - great birds to see!
Two nights is definitely not enough in this place, we should have stayed at least 4 - maybe next time ...
