The sands at Nomad


The Sands at Nomad Hotel is a luxurious boutique hotel and is located more towards central Diani Beach, though only 2.5km away from the H2o Centre. The hotel’s facilities are nestled into 26 acres of pristine coastal forest, where you can find monkeys, bush babies and other indigenous inhabitants.

The style of the hotel doesn’t compare to the typical block hotel concept, but persuades with a contemporary mix of nature, Swahili architecture, Italian interior deco, Arabic antique furniture and the comfort of a twist of luxury.

The Sands is a convenient place to stay especially if you want to combine scuba diving and kitesurfing during your vacation in Diani. Diving the Crab is a world-renowned PADI and SSI center based at the resort with its own fleet of boats. They offer diving excursions once daily, going to a selection of dive sites with shallow coral reefs dropping to a depth of 30 metres. Common sightings are turtles, dolphins, rays, frog fish, whale sharks and many more.

The hotel’s restaurant, Nomad at The Sands, offers quality local and international dishes. Their extensive a-la carte menu offers a fantastic choice of seafood, pizza and fine dining options, accompanied by an extensive wine selection and drinks menu. Providing an idyllic spot to relax between water sport sessions, enjoy sundowners with friends and savour a romantic moonlight dinner, Nomad’s is the place to be on Diani Beach.

We offer free transport exclusively for guests of The Sands at Nomad, if they do windsurfing or kitesurfing activities with us.
