Legatto Insider: Diamonds Dream of Africa Kenya, Malindi

Welcome to a resort where the enchanting power of nature blends in with the exotic style of the Indo-Arab buildings to offer you a mesmerizing charm, which in Swahili, is called “bembeleza”. 

For lovers of all things aqua there’s Diamonds Dream of Africa, Malindi. Home to Mvua African Rain Spa, beside Kenya’s silver sandy shore, close to Malindi and Watamu Marine Parks and Lamu Island’s UNESCO Lamu Town, all water-related pleasures converge at this all-inclusive, all-suite Indo-Arab resort. When the average year-round temperature is 27-30oC, this watery playground is just the ticket where even the 33 junior suites and two suites have Jacuzzi bathtubs. Relaxing is made effortlessly easy, and Diamonds’ all-inclusive concept means you’re taken care of at every turn: from the welcome cocktail to mealtimes (fresh fish, seafood, vegetarian), beach service (towels, sun beds, umbrellas) and evening entertainment.

But it’s Mvua African Rain Spa at Diamonds Dream of Africa where you’ll gain pure serenity. Equipped with two hydrotherapy pools, thalassotherapy treatments are a big draw here, tapping into the healing properties of sea water and the hydrodynamic power of water jets that aid the oxygenation of tissue and healthy blood circulation. There’s also a beauty centre using locally sourced plants, flowers, salts, grains, fruit extracts and spices in its massages, facials and body treatments based on age-old African, Asian and European know-how. Now all that’s left to do is enjoy the activities available: archery, catamaran sailing, canoeing, beach volleyball and of course, safari.
