The Beginnings

WaterLovers was born of our passion for the ocean.
Who are we? Riccardo and Valentina.
True to the ancient adage: "Life holds many surprises" we found ourselves living in Kenya, which is where our love of the ocean and nature guided us to find paradise in Africa.
We were initially deeply inspired to coming to Africa after having watched a movie based on the true story of the mountain gorillas in Uganda. Valentina finally realised her dream of visiting the mountain gorillas after travelling to a great many ocean destinations around the world. We combined the trip with a safari in the Massai Mara in Kenya, which left us absolutely stunned. By the end of our safari, we were curious about Kenya's coastline, so we decided to spend a week at the South Coast and . it was love at first sight!
Kenya's South Coast impressed us with its colours and relaxed atmosphere, which stands in sharp contrast to the hectic confusion of Mombasa town. Nevertheless, Diani Beach is in close proximity to Mombasa International Airport and services such as banks, supermarkets, shops and European standard hospitals are ready at hand.
We started our hotel from scratch, from the sand of the white beach overlooking a blue water lagoon, which reaches out 500 metres to the coral reef. Diani Beach offers prime wind conditions and fantastic water and air temperatures.

The Project

Every single detail of the hotel was planned and constructed by ourselves. We like to call the style we had so much fun realizing here, Afro-chic. WaterLovers is a combination of Sardinian (Sardinia is an Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea) and Caribbean influences and incorporates a lot of ideas we collected while travelling the world. The use of wonderful local materials adds an exhilarating ethnic touch rounding off our design.
WaterLovers has eight spacious rooms, each furnished with a private ocean view veranda. Our waterfront restaurant offers an exotic cuisine blending Mediterranean recipes with local ingredients. Relax in our turtle-shaped infinity pool while enjoying a clear view of the ocean. An additional deluxe ocean view villa can accommodate as many as eight people. It is equipped with a fully furnished kitchen and comes with a private chef, if requested.
There is a clear-cut reason behind our motto: "Come as guest, leave as a friend". We feel strongly about the importance of supporting our guests in the organisation of their vacation and we will be happy to help you plan a safari or excursion while you stay with us.
In contrast to the big hotels, we take pride and enjoy establishing a heart-felt personal contact to our guests as it is our goal to make your experience of staying at WaterLovers as unique as possible.
