“Wonderful villa!!”
Reviewed 20 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife and my daughter who is only 5 months old stayed here for 8 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
The staff are very friendly and ready to help in any matter. Tabitha even offered to look after our DD. Tabitha did our daily washing.
We hired a chef for our stay at extra cost and he was well worth the money. He knew plenty of dishes and were all very tasteful. The chef was very willing to go shopping for us. He even washed the baby bottles everyday.
The villa is very nicely decorated and very comfortable. The pool is lovely although the water was cold so we didn't really spend anytime in there.
I loved the design concept and the interiors used....some of it is expensive stuff.
The owners have really made an effort to make this place cosy for their guests. They even have a projector with dstv.
Utensils and cutlery were never short....and they were not the standard type you get everywhere. Even the simple fork and knife were of good quality.... they even had steak knives just to show you the extent of details this owner has put into this place not to forget the alarm switch on the bedside and the samsung curve tv....list is endless.
Btw they picked and dropped us from ukunda airstrip at no extra cost.
We will definitely come back again....

“Perfect villa!”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our family of four found perfect rest, relaxation, restoration at Villa Raymond. The beautiful pool allowed a place for afternoon retreat. The spacious open living and eating areas gave opportunity to congregate in several areas . We especially liked the gazebo for our evening meal. Having an ah-mazing chef and attentive house help made out vacation complete.

“A slice of paradise”

My wife and I took a long awaited break to Diani and chose to stay at Villa Raymond. It was an excellent choice. The ambience was perfect - wonderful and homely, while at the same time relaxing and pampering. The beauty of the Villa is breathtaking, with open interconnecting spaces making one feel at one with nature: the streaming water fountain gurgling away in the background as a backdrop to intimate conversations; the choice of materials and quality of finish binding with the outside space for a seamless experience. Our spacious and well appointed room was always cleaned and well supplied, the fridge restocked with all the necessities. Our host was always friendly, welcoming us and helping us settle in. She was always helpful with recommendations of fun and interesting things to do in the Diani area. The staff also do deserve special mention. The Chef who was available on demand did an excellent job of teasing our palates, and a pleasant cleaning lady always on hand when required.
I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Raymond to any family or couple looking for a superior choice in accommodation when in Diani.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
We spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Raymond. The setting is simply beautiful and of a very refined design. The entire staff is incredibly kind, professional and discreet. After a safari from West to East, we wanted to finish our first trip to Kenya in a peaceful and relaxing place where the whole family could meet and recharge their batteries. We can guarantee you have lived it! We were able to rest while enjoying Diani Beach and its surroundings at our own pace. A big thank you Anita, Boniface and the entire team for your warm welcome. The villa is beautiful but it is also a very nice human encounter that make the interest and the wealth of travel. We will be back in Kenya. The whole family spends the day. Stéphane & Family
