Riccardo & Valentina, Owners, Waterlovers
Located on the coral white sand of Diani Beach, 45 minutes south of Mombasa, Waterlovers Beach Resort was built by Riccardo and Valentina in a style they describe as Afro-chic, combining influences from Sardinia, the Caribbean and Swahili Coast. Drawing on these coastal themes the result is a calming rustic design that features lots of unique carved wooden furniture (such as a cool surfboard table) and bright local sarongs used cleverly to add splashes of colour throughout the resort.
Built to take full advantage of the ocean views, the main guests areas consist of the beachfront Tides Restaurant which serves a delicious fusion of Mediterranean & Swahili cuisine, the cool beach bar with lots of comfy sitting areas, the Kola Spa in the tranquil gardens and right at the centre a turtle shaped infinity pool for cooling off in the middle of the day. The hotel also has a beach house where snorkelling gear and kayaks are available, free of charge.
The accommodation at Waterlovers features 8 ocean facing suites with private verandas, a three bedroom private villa with lounge & kitchen which can be booked with a private chef and a beautiful new four bedroom penthouse apartment, spread over two floors with a cosy lounge packed with media gadgets, an open plan kitchen and large private veranda overlooking the ocean.
With constant trade winds and flat warm water, Diani is one of the best spots in Africa for kitesurfing and windsurfing, catering to all levels and Waterlovers will help you get all booked with the excellent water-sports centre “H20 Extreme” just along the beach – Riccardo and Valentina are also pretty handy on the water! Other activities available at the centre include SUP boarding, boogie boarding and with a reef only 700m off shore some pretty special snorkelling and diving.
You will struggle to leave that beach but Riccardo & Valentina can also arrange various excursions in the area which include trips into Mombasa Old Town, swimming with dolphins in Kisite Marine Park and visiting the elephant sanctuary in the Shimba Hills Reserve.
It will cost you no extra to use our service than the cost of booking your holiday direct.

“Going away feeds my soul, I love finding places that make me want to stop for a moment and breathe it all in. It’s about creating memories that stand out in my mind, an escape from routine.”
“I love to travel so I can turn my imagination into reality, instead of thinking about how places might be, I want to see them as they truly are.”
