The peaceful and unspoiled Galu Beach is one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches of the Kenyan coast. This stretch of beach is dotted by indigenous flora and is close to the protected Kaya Kinondo Forest, yet it is conveniently placed just a 10 minute drive from nearby Diani which has a broad range of facilities including a shopping area, banks, restaurants and night clubs.
Lantana Galu Beach is a large and modern resort surrounded by pretty landscaped gardens reaching right to the edge of the white sands that are lapped by the azure Indian Ocean. It appeals to those who want to escape the rigid format of a traditional hotel and have the flexibility of either self-catering or taking advantage of the restaurant and bar facilities provided on the property.
We offer the stylish Penthouses, ideal for guests looking for luxury in a stunning location.
The property has an attractive Swahili style architecture and the interior design is chic and contemporary with open plan living spaces. The Swahili style continues throughout the interiors with traditional wooden carved furniture combined with modern elements.
The top-floor, one-bedroom Penthouses offer fantastic views to the ocean in the east and the Shimba Hills to the west. They offer spacious open plan rooms, a private roof terrace with Jacuzzi and they are equipped with everything that a luxury modern home would include, such as air conditioning, ceiling fans, DSTV, DVD player, wireless internet connections and an intercom system.
