Waterlovers Beach Resort, Diani Beach- Kenya

Press and Reputation

In more than 10 years of activity, Waterlovers was lucky enough to receive several Journalists and VIP within our guests.
Many ended their stay at WL with the enthusiasm of writing something about us: below there are 3 articles, one published into I viaggi di Repubblica, which is travel insert of the most influent newspaper in Italy (La Repubblica).


Another one is been published on the inflight magazine of Airkenya and Aerolink and Regional Air (September-November 2015), very popular within all the residents of East Africa and the tourists coming from oversea since they're flying everywhere in Kenya for safari and domestic flights:


- The third one was edited by AmyLaubach, for the inflight magazine of Fly 540, November/December 2018 edition.


- Another important press release about us was the article published on the famous magazine Daily Mail in the United Kingdom: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/article-3308128/Michaela-Strachan-encounters-tiny-sicklebacks-hungry-lions-safari-Suffolk-Kenya.html(November 2015)

This was written by TV star Michaela Strachan

She wrote about her stay with us:
"After our brilliant safari, it was time head for the coast and a wonderful place called the Waterlovers Beach Resort on Diani Beach, south of Mombasa. This charming little hotel was exquisite - it's located on a stunning white-sand beach. After nine days on safari, we felt like we needed a bit of R&R. It's amazing how early morning game drives and incredible dinners and chats around the camp fire can take it out of you! During our time there we played board games such as Scrabble, Monopoly and Uno, enjoyed some football on the beach, went swimming, visited the Colobus Monkey Trust and went on a fabulous dhow trip to a marine park with a company called Pilli Pipa, which I can highly recommend."

Internet Reputation

In addition we built up a reputation on the internet world thanks to the grateful work of our precious guests, who took the time and the effort to describe their experience on internet blogs and platforms, like Booking.Com, Holidaycheck, etc etc, of which, naturally, the biggest one is represented by Tripadvisor. On this oneparticularly, it's better to underline the incredible results achieved. We have at the moment more than 400 reviews, of which an incredible percentage of more than 90%, are Excellent ones (with 5 stars). Seen the number of years operating in the hospitality field, this is some sort of record (Tripadvisor is known for the inflexibility of the rating system, the number of people looking at it before booking their holidays, and the diffusion on several media, social, apps and global advertising).

We received many awards from Tripadvisor :

We won the Certificate of Excellence for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018

Than we won the Travellers' Choice ® 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018and we're the Winners for Best Service | Small Hotels |Romance in the area.


Also on Holiday-Check, (the biggest online platform for holiday review in the German speaking countries) guests keep Waterlovers in great consideration.


Than we won some other important awards, like the Luxury Travel Guide Global award for 2015, as Luxury Beach Resort of the year for Kenya.


Another relevant source of press comes from the blogs.
There are many, but we just would like to underline some of them, which are particularly interesting since they're specialized in sectors quite important for the core business of the resort.
This one for example is a blog for honeymooners, which gave us quite some popularity in the sector:


Another one includes Waterlovers in the "Safari Serenity collection": as one of the "Nine Rejuvenating Safari Spots" by Briony Chisholm , 21 January 2016

In this blog we're together with the best high-end safari properties in Africa, like the Finch Huttonsin Tsavo and the David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa, Livingstone, Zambia The blog is available at: http://wild-wings-safaris.com/blog/healing-safaris/

Also in 2011 we've been included in a professional travel video It was shooted by Mr. Klaus Kamphausen from Komplett-Media. He travelled in the best locations around Kenya in the month of January / February 2011 to work on a new travel documentary about Kenya.


The documentary is been on salein video shops from October 11, in all the German speaking countries (Germany, Austria & Switzerland). The documentary brough us a lot of business, and it was a good way of marketing our property because we were shown and mentioned in the film with the address of the resort plus our website was shown on the credits of the documentary (we have a copy of the documentary in the library at the resort).

Then we have been included in other 3 videos, One done by the Photographer Andrea Fusaro available at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA22SdkPkAc

(more than 2700 views)


One produced by Waterlovers itself, a video interview where we tell the story of our adventure to Kenya and the Beginnings of Waterlovers, plus we show the property and the sports available (kite surfers and water sport lovers are quite a segment of our market too). This was viewed more than 2100 times. It is available at : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGqIvOxDNIM&feature=youtu.be


And another one done by one of our guests Mauro Raponi (more amatorial, but with still more than 2100 views on youtube, so a good exposure) . Available@: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYWu7r81lqQ


Highly Recommended on the Travel Guides

Having being open for a long time, we're listed of course in all the major travel guides, like the Lonely Planet , the Petit Futè, the Rough Guide, etc etc. Some of them anyway sent their representative, to see the place in person, like Hilary Heuler for the Rough Guide ( http://hilaryheuler.wordpress.com/) and Camille Esmieu for the Petit Futè .
They both gave us a great feedback. Hilary wrote to us: "Thank you guys! It's a lovely place, certainly deserving of the star we give it in the book. I hope to make it back some day to enjoy it properly".
And the Petit Futè included us in their Coupe de Coeur (recommended hotels) section, with the below half page.
