Country: Kenya


Galu Sea Lodge has some very nice houses, that can be taken over by three families for a very decent price. Its just beyond the end of the well-tarmacked Diani beach road, right on the beach in a beautiful spot with a well-maintained swimming pool.
Club Kusini just slightly farther down offers the same.
Otherwise, there are plenty of hotels with very reasonable prices.

Contact Adrian at for details on prices.
IFew years back I found a very resonable place on the North Coast called Mombsa Sai Resort and its comfortable but not luxurious. Charges approx $40 pp. Buts its on the beach and its good. Unfortunatly has no swimming pool.
In south coast there are many hotels 1) BAOBAB Lodge 2) Jacaranda 3) Southern Palms. for the transport I can get it organsied with some private owners good ones much cheaper than someone like Budget Car Hire. On North Coast you can either stay in hotel room or you can book a cottage the organise food within or you can buy from various near by resturants...choice is need to decide exactly what you want then go step by step for the let me know if you need something more on Mombasa!!
Dear sir
i have a cottage in north coast Diani which can accommodate up ten people, you can visit our web or call me direct 0725755162 if you are interested let me know about the dates you could like to visit

Hi Josephat,

There's LTI Kaskazi and Maweni Cottages, which have fantastic rates- especially they have waived Christmas supplements. At LTI, they have an offer where children between 0-5 yrs sharing with parents stay free. I'll be at popping in at the Sarit Centre Getaway '09 Fair, you can send me. Give me more details, especially the children's ages, dates, and I will put a package together for you.
