Pinewood Beach Resort and Spa Diani Beach, Kenya Coast, Kenya

This is one of our favourite properties on this stretch of beach -
it offers a lovely peaceful location at Galu and unbeatable value - just perfect for a simple beach getaway, and great in combination with a few days on safari elsewhere in Kenya.

We are not the only ones to rate this rustic beach resort highly - the hotel appears amongst the top 10 hotels in Kenya by TripAdvisor and has also won a number of awards over the years.

The hotel is neither too big nor too small with a choice of 58 air conditioned rooms scattered around the gardens in two storey whitewashed buildings.

Deluxe rooms are situated on the first floor with verandah. Suites are on the ground floor and are more spacious and feature a kitchen (with the services of a personal chef for dinner), living room and a large verandah.

There's a lovely pool and a selection of laid-back bars and restaurants. There's also a small spa. Many of our clients comment on the warm and personal service offered by Pinewood.
