We arrived to DBV by boat after a short flight from Nairobi. The atmosphere upon arrival was hard to describe... Maybe something like luxury eco-lodging... Rachel, the owner, hosted us in a very warm way. The staff were always looking out to make sure we were happy and the food... Well the food... Fresh, modern yet simple, great flavours and...

super relaxing, really good food and super nice people! Film & Pizza Night is one of their best nights! In the evenings, try and go on a Diamond Sail with champagne and cameras for the most magical sunset!

We were staying on Lamu and went to Diamond especially to get our pizza fix and we loved it! Tasty pizza, cold beer and friendly service. They do Pizza & Movie nights on fridays and I would recommend to go and check it out.

After three busy weeks travelling around Kenya, this down to earth eco lodge was our final destination! We couldn't have found a more perfect place to kick our shoes off and sink into a deep state of relaxation. We loved the simplicity of the wood and palm woven huts which were immaculately clean, cool and comfortable, not to mention our...

I had the great fortune to stay at DBV for two nights in August 2016 with three other travelling companions. Arrival is by boat only delivering you straight onto the sandy beach. Quite an adventure and pretty romantic. Rachel was a lovely host, friendly but not intrusive. Her staff were beautifully turned out and very helpful, remembering my name, which...

Stayed for a week with a group of friends, including 3 children (ages 3,6,10) We all had the best time ever. I don't think i have relaxed properly like that in years. The owner and staff are just the most lovely people you can hope to meet, and go out of their way to be accommodating. Food was amazing, beach...

We spent four days here and would happily have stayed longer. Lamu and Manda islands are a must visit if you're in Kenya and Diamond Beach is perfect spot to explore the area from. The staff were excellent and very accommodating and the owner made sure we felt very at home and had everything we needed to make our stay...
