During our trips back home to Kenya we always try and have a mini break in Diani,the south coast of Mombasa,这次我们选择了斯瓦希里海滩，a luxury 5 star hotel,作为我们选择的放松和放松的场所，我们提供半膳宿。
Swahili Beach has a unique look and designed with a traditional Swahili and Arabic architectural flair which is characterised by the use of arches,high ceilings,stone and pale colours.我喜欢这个设计，发现它有自己的魅力。一切都是那么的宽敞、开放和宁静。装饰都是美味的斯瓦希里语和美丽。
The resort itself is extensive with 7 cascading pools,美丽的花园和海滩上的印度洋景色。I have to highlight that it is not the most beautiful stretch of beach in Diani but it is still lovely and peaceful.
There are various areas across the resort with ample sun loungers and chairs to relax in and there is also a coffee lounge,每天供应下午茶的地方，and a beach bar and restaurant,which is really nice.
Upon arrival we were given refreshing Dawas,这是一种受欢迎的肯尼亚鸡尾酒，to cool down with in the intense heat.这是一个很可爱的手势，登记手续很顺利，quick and seamless.工作人员非常热情友好。
在斯瓦希里海滩，他们有三类房间——标准的，superior and Executive.我们升级到行政套房，这是巨大的。它有自己的休息区，bedroom,ginormous bathroom and im狗万官网pressive balcony.There was a view of the pool area palm fringed with the coconut trees I adore!!
The balcony was so difficult to capture in one shot but here is a series of shots so you get an idea!!
The bathroom had a dreamy sunken bath as well as a separate shower and had a stunning design.
The room had a large TV,desk,在方便的地方有充足的镜子和插头，吹风机，eco friendly toiletries as well as air conditioning and a fan.WiFi很好，房间很干净，非常舒适。We had no complaints about anything.
Food and Drink
有很多选择，有很多非洲和印度菜，以及经典的大陆菜。因为我们是在半董事会的基础上，we decided to have lunch at the beachside restaurant Barharini,真是太好了。吃午饭时的海浪声是我最喜欢吃壁画的方式之一。
我们在自助餐厅吃的晚餐，Majiliswhich means meeting place.有一个非常好的选择，especially for vegetarians as one of our party was a vegetarian.这是一个特殊的时刻，酒店把所有的站点都停下来让它变得特别，所以我们对此非常高兴和感激。
The Kahawa Lounge,我们在那里喝下午茶，serves coffees and teas,and at tea time you can have pancakes,巴加斯蛋糕，以及其他美味佳肴。This is complimentary.
The cocktails were really good at Swahili Beach too!Mojitos让我保持了精神和快乐。
The Dawas were delicious too!!
如果你喜欢的话，you could also have fresh madafu (coconuts).我很喜欢这张挂着这个牌子的小桌子。
酒店还设有海鲜餐厅和印度餐厅，but we didn't get a chance to try these out.
Service and Facilities
酒店的服务很好。The staff were really attentive without being intrusive and quick at helping or taking food and drink orders.
游泳池是我最喜欢的酒店特色，and I had a fantastic time swimming and sunbathing by the pool.The hotel was very quiet when we stayed so we had most of the pool to ourselves.
斯瓦希里海滩位于戴安海滩。The beach is really relaxing and peaceful but I wouldn't say it is the best stretch of beach you can find in Diani,在南海岸的其他酒店住过。However,it is still a really decent stretch of beach and there are nice comfortable lounge chairs to chill in.
总之，我们在斯瓦希里海滩过得很愉快。It was really good value for money when comparing rates at other hotels (March 2017) and the service,food,room and overall experience was wonderful and we would recommend it.
