Four Twenty South

Galu Beach, Diani, Kenya


Stay at Four Twenty South

Four Twenty South is so-called due to its latitude position that is almost exactly 4 degrees and 20 minutes South of the Equator. Guests staying at Four Twenty have the perfect opportunity to completely relax in three acres of peaceful tropical gardens right on the shore of the stunning Indian Ocean. What is on offer here, is the total privacy and freedom of your own home, minus the housework, with it being completely your decision on how your time is spent. Guests are completely in charge of their day-to-day activities.

The houses range in size, from two bedrooms to five. All of the houses have completely uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean and have the stunning Diani Beach on their doorstep. The houses have all been renovated for ultimate comfort, yet still, retain their unique original character. Each of the properties comes with personal staff for cooking, cleaning, laundry, and they are there to ensure your stay is as relaxing as possible. The staff will happily shop for you, or alternatively, guests have the opportunity to purchase fresh

seafood, seasonal fruits and vegetables right from the comfort of their property, as they are sold door-to-door by local traders.

The hotel has a rich heritage and still tries to live by its original ethos. The hotel is passionate about recycling and sustainable use of resources, with many of the doors and windows being recycled from demolished buildings, furniture being recycled or made from reclaimed material. The hotel lives as part of nature’s cycle and does not water the gardens or waste water during the dry season. Nature’s gifts are utilised, for example, the stunning lagoon in front of the hotel is treated as a natural spa and therefore they see no need for a swimming pool.

Four Twenty provides guests with a truly uniquely authentic, traditional beach holiday experience that is far removed from that of a soulless, modern beach resorts. The hotel gives guests the experience of living in harmony with the natural local environment, seasons and the tides of Galu Beach, believed to be one of Africa’s finest and best kept secrets.

I went on an adventure of a lifetime to Kenya, planned by True Travel. Borana was the perfect introduction to Africa – the staff were fantastic, the lodge very comfortable and I had amazing wildlife sightings. Then the helicopter flight and night out with Andrew (the real Crocodile Dundee) was an experience of a lifetime; we went scorpion hunting, crocodile catching, swimming in lakes and flew over flamingos. All in all, everything was fantastically planned and the service was brilliant. I’m looking forward to the next adventure!
