What an absolute joy to have experienced the Cove Retreat. This is a peaceful, high service retreat with 6 tree houses, private beach and wonderful surroundings. We had 7 nights at the end of our honeymoon. The service is great, friendly and we felt very privileged to be there. The locals on the beach were great- make sure you go...

My new husband and I stayed at The Cove in September. After being on safari we were looking forward to relaxing for a few days before we had to return home. I couldn't help feeling smug as we dropped off the other tourists on our bus at their large resorts knowing that where they were staying could be anywhere in...

Something a bit different from the packaged experience further up at coast at Diani/Malindi. The treehouses are fantastic with acres of space and very comfortable. The other accommodation is set back from the sea and very much second best. The food was good if not fantastic. The small number of guests and staff mean you get to know pretty much....

My wife and I stayed here both prior to and post Safari, for our Ruby Anniversary. We stayed each time in a Treehouse, No 1 first which is seafront and then No 4 a garden location, though still with a sea view. As already stated there are no distractions at this Hotel, no music, clocks, Telephones or T.Vs so you...

We stayed at The Cove for two weeks in July for our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time. The service was excellent and the views are amazing. We stayed in a TreeHouse and whilst the sem-outside bathroom may get some little visitors of the bug and lizard variety, the main bedroom is fully enclosed with air conditioning - something...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
COVE TREE HOUSES - DIANI BEACH, KENYA Our small intimate lodge is nestled in its own private cove, just 12kms from Diani Beach Town - but well away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism. The Cove offers guests exclusivity, excellent service, and the peace and quiet of a magical retreat! Here, time doesn't matter, and our team will work around your schedule. Your long, lazy beach walks will be uninterrupted, and the only sounds you will hear are the wish-wash of the tide, the cry of distant fish eagles and the rustling of the Baobab and Coconut tree leaves. The Cove has only six ocean-facing villa treehouses, with their own private decks. Enjoy panoramic vistas of the East African coastline dotted with pretty Ngalawas (Swahili boats). The Cove is a romantic retreat and is perfect for honeymooners. If your dream is to have a Kenyan beach wedding then you have just found the perfect place for it. Diani Beach has been voted Africa's Top Beach Destination 3 years in a row (beating Mozambique, Sharm El Sheikh, Zanzibar and Cape Town!), and is everything you'd expect from a tropical beach get-away: a gentle breeze whispering across powdery white beaches fringed by coconut trees and lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. Diani is on the Kenyan South Coast, a scenic forty-five minute drive from Mombasa. Like any good beach destination - Diani Beach is not short of activities. We can organise kite surfing, diving, snorkelling, deep sea fishing and so much more while you stay with us..... Or you could choose to indulge in absolute relaxation during your stay with us. ... more   less
