Set in lush tropical gardens, overlooking the Indian Ocean and extending onto a long powdery-white and tranquil beach, the property comprises a collection of elegantly furnished and serviced holiday villas.
The design of the villa has been inspired by Swahili architecture. The interiors are modern with clean open plan living spaces flooded with natural light and natural ventilation taking advantage of the sunny, breezy coastal climate.
The overall look and feel of the furnishings is Contemporary Swahili: traditional wooden carved furniture combined with modern elements, creating a fresh perspective on coastal interiors.
The villa is fitted and equipped with everything that a modern home would require and includes all the furnishings to be expected of a luxury home.
Facilities within a villa include air conditioning in all bedrooms, ceiling fans in all rooms, satellite, DVD player, wireless internet connection and an intercom system.
GALU BEACH, located approximately 5km south of DIANI BEACH on KENYA'S FAMOUS SOUTH COAST, is easily accessible by road and by commercial flights from Nairobi to Mombasa or direct flights to Ukunda (Diani) airstrip with AirKenya or Safarilink.
This stretch of beach sits away from the crowded Diani beach and prides itself as an unspoiled area, dotted by indigenous flora, close to the protected Kaya Kinondo Forest.
While located on a quiet, secluded part of the South Coast, Galu Beach is a convenient 10 minute drive from the main Diani shopping area, with shops, bakeries, supermarkets, banks, travel agents, restaurants and night clubs. This part of the coast boasts numerous excursions and sporting activities and is close to marine parks, wildlife sanctuaries and game parks.
WATER SPORTS along the coast include: scuba diving, snorkelling, big game fishing, kite surfing, wind surfing, jet skiing and sailing. Other sporting activities include: golf (18 hole par 72 course), sky diving, motor bike, quad bike or bicycle rental.
MARINE EXCURSIONS include: dhow or glass bottom boat trips to the coral reef, big game fishing from Shimoni in the Pemba Channel, whale shark tagging, dolphin safaris and sea turtle watching around Wasini Island within the Kisite-Mpunguti Marine Reserve. Other excursions include visits to Chale Island, Funzi Island and Msambweni.
WILDLIFE EXCURSIONS are possible to the Shimba Hills National Reserve, the Sable Valley Sanctuary and the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary.
The South Coast is also home to the Wakuluzu Colobus Trust for the protection of the endangered Colobus monkey and offers a forest nature trail on its grounds.
A Galu Beach holiday can also easily be coupled with WILDLIFE SAFARIS within National Parks and Sanctuaries along the Nairobi – Mombasa road such as: Amboseli, Chyulu Hills, Tsavo East / Tsavo West and Taita Hills Wildlife Sanctuary.
