The Eco Lodge – “The place where dreams come true and where seeds will flourish “

Diamond Beach Village is a family run eco lodge, seafood restaurant, and beach bar on the West facing most pristine beach front of Manda island, Lamu.  At the mouth the indian ocean, the warmest ocean in the world, known as the mine of gems you will find your Diamond. If your looking for total serenader and relaxation coupled with the exquisite modern food and Swahili culture that takes you back to ancient rhythms of life then look no further.

It is the perfect place to come and relax for the day on the beach, a weekend away from the city or weeks totally immersed in the peace of the island and escape the stresses and strains of everyday life. There are no cars on Lamu or Manda, the only form of transport is donkey or boat: The pace of life is inevitably slow and relaxed. The island is located roughly three degrees south of the equator therefore you can guarantee that perfect island getaway from July – April.

Come and join us for dhow racing, donkey rides, bird watching, kite surfing, dancing and star gazing. If you need a wedding planner or a business conference organiser need to plan a workshop, retreat, festival or celebration of any kind; anything is possible.

Message from the Manager

My name is Rachael Feiler, I am the owner, manager of Diamond Beach and the music director for the Lamu Arts Festival. Diamond has been my home for nearly 17 years, originally from the UK I grew up on the beaches of Cornwall, so moving to a remote island with the Indian Ocean as my swimming pool – feels like a natural place to call home.

Waking up and taking an early morning walks with yoga on the beach, fresh tropical fruits and hand line caught tuna fish, a boat ride to town for shopping and meeting people from all over the world in my Blue Moon Bar. Myself and the 14 staff are on hand to make sure your experience exceeds your expectations. We hope you can come and visit us in our little piece of paradise.
