The water is turquoise-blue and warm, the sand is chalky white, and you are lying in the shade of a palm tree.
If you dream of staying at a small, really fabulous boutique hotel on the beautiful Kenya Diani Beach, The Sands at Nomad is the obvious choice. Here, you will find 25 km of lovely beach and a first-class hotel oozing charm and personality.
There are only 29 rooms, scattered here and there in a large tropical garden with swaying palm trees and green lawns, which contrast beautifully with the fine white sand on the beach.
All rooms are individually appointed with inspiration from traditional Swahili design. All have a mini bar, Wi-Fi, safe, air conditioning and a mosquito net over the beds.
The hotel boasts what is probably the deepest pool in the whole of Kenya – 5 metres – making it a great place to learn to dive. Sun loungers can be found all over the area, allowing you to choose whether you want to lie on the beach, by the pool or under a palm tree on the lawn.
Enjoy a relaxing massage at the hotel’s spa or enjoy some of the many water sports activities the hotel offers. It is also possible to take part in yoga classes, and there is a golf course close to the hotel.
The hotel has two restaurants and two bars spread across the area, so you never have far to go in search of food and drink.
