Diani Sea Lodge is a family run business in third generation. Diani Sea Lodge was founded in 1987 by the late Mr & Mrs Matthiessen. In 1990 their daughter and son-in-law moved to Kenya from Germany to take over the business. And in 2014 the Matthiessen grandson and granddaughter-in-law left their “normal” jobs and joined them with their two children.
We take great pride in continuing the business and are hopeful that Mr. & Mrs Mathhiessen’s great grandchildren will one day decide to step into their ancestral footsteps as well.
We are invested in this hotel and in the surrounding area. In order for our hotel to succeed for generations to come we realize that we must invest not just in our hotel but also in our community.
We have started an educational apprentice program in order to ensure that local students can continue their education and find jobs in this community and find a way out of poverty. In addition, we support a local school and orphanage with monetary and material donations.
