Almanara Diani Beach Resort Maps Directions and Transportation

Almanara Luxury Resort is located on Galu Beach, which is the central part of three stretches of 7km beaches that make up the 25 kilometres of Diani Beach. The beach is extremely clean and quiet, away from the hassle of the larger hotels situated further north. The area itself is considered an extremely safe and friendly environment.

Distance from Major Towns

  • 45km from Mombasa Town
  • 40km from Likoni Ferry
  • 7km from Ukunda airstrip
  • 521km from Nairobi

If you travel by road from Nairobi, the trip takes about seven hours. It is a long but adventurous drive across the countryside, through the rift valley and into the coastal region.

On the other hand, a flight reduces the time and energy spent. Flights leave the city from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or Wilson Airport and land at Moi International Airport in Mombasa. It is an hour’s flight between the two regions. Ukunda airstrip is another landing spot for small aircrafts. From Moi international Airport, it takes about an hour and a half by road to the hotel. Ukunda airstrip is only 10 minutes away.

The resort’s package includes road transfer services. To ease the burden of searching for an air travel company or the need to figure out maps and directions in order to get here safely, Almanara Resort offers a private charter service.

This charter service is convenient for corporate groups that intend to transport a handful of participants or executive personnel.  Prominent personalities can also benefit from the privacy and comfort of charter flights. This aircraft transports you from the capital city to Ukunda’s airstrip. You can also use this private aircraft when travelling from the lodge to various out of town attractions such as the Maasai Mara.
