Accommodation at WaterLovers

Guests are accommodated in eight spacious suite equipped with a private veranda overlooking the ocean. The rooms boast bright colours and lots of contrasting textures that represent both Swahili culture and Mediterranean design. The Arab word 'Swahili' means ‘of the shore’ and is the traditional language of East Africa. It is also the true culture of Africa’s Indian Ocean coastline, a trader's culture that blends cultural elements of Africa and Arabia with the East and West, which can be felt throughout WaterLovers interiors.

Location

WaterLovers is located on Diani Beach, about 35 km south of Moi International Airport Mombasa. Diani's long white sandy beach stretches along a breathtakingly beautiful stretch of 25 kilometres that is framed by crystal waters and coconut palm groves. The coral reef is home to sea turtles, dolphins, and numerous tropical fish.

The beach is bordered by lush green rainforest full of colourful birds and the rare breed of Colobus, an almost extinct black and white monkey, unique to this area of East Africa. The sprawling dimensions of the Shimba Hills natural reserve, a sanctuary for elephants, buffalos, antelopes and other wildlife, are located a little further inland and just a short drive from Diani.

There is a shopping centre on the other side of the beach road with a large supermarket, bars, cafes, restaurants, a pharmacy, a bank and various kinds of other facilities along with a health shop specialising in biological and natural products.

Cuisine

Waterlovers have a fantastic on-site restaurant called Tides. A charming set-up, with a laid-back atmosphere and a stunning view overlooking the ocean. The structural design is reminiscent of Greek architecture – spacious, whitewashed arcades with wooden ceiling beams made of African cedar, which ties in perfectly with the Mediterranean flavours and equatorial African Coast influence in the restaurant's dishes. All dishes are hand-made on site, including freshly made pasta and bread.

Roasted pumpkin ravioli in crab and fish ragout, crab fagottini with avocado and lime sauce, passion fruit mousse with white chocolate flakes and mint leaves are just some of the recipes that will get your tastebuds going. Additionally, their Beach Bar ‘Ocean Spirit’ is the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail as the sun goes down.

  • For those who want to start diving or already have a diving licence, the reef is extremely rich and offers different kinds of dive spots.
