How They Dazzle Us
With just 29 suites this Landing perfectly captures the concept of the boutique hotel set as it is within an intimate yet spacious environment. The hotel is nestled within 26 acres of indigenous coastal forest, which catches the cool sea breeze and is a haven for wildlife. All rooms are awash with white walls, vivid ocean blues and Swahili architecture with a contemporary twist. It dazzles. So much so that Sands at Nomad has been a proud of recipient of the Travel Life Gold Certificate for work on sustainable tourism for development. They have been a leading light in environmental and conservation issues on Kenya’s south coast since 2005.Read More >
Why We Love Them
We love how the ocean is so central to this Landing. It’s not just that it is situated on the glistening white shores of the award-winning Diani Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world, it is also about the incredible diving facilities. From this Landing you can explore the magical depths of the Indian Ocean with Kenya’s premier diving center. There is also a phenomenal marine education centre, run by a marine biologist and education manager, where guests can uncover more about Kenya’s amazing marine life, the grave threats facing our oceans and how to live sustainably. And best of all there is the opportunity to spend time at a turtle hatchery where guests can witness the heart-stopping spectacle of turtle hatchlings breaking free from their nests and making a perilous dash for the sea.Read More >
Their Sustainable Superpower
The team at this wonderful Landing have developed a strategy to ensure that every element of their commercial endeavour ties in with their ecological outlook. As such all decisions taken across the hotel consider the local and natural environment and must tie in with their ‘Thinking Green’ philosophy. The Sands’ ‘Green Team’, led by a dedicated Sustainability Manager, has pioneered a local waste management and recycling scheme. Fresh harvests from the Nomad organic farm are delivered straight to the restaurant kitchen while support for sustainable fishing is evident with seafood measuring boards in use as well as simple things like the use of biodegradable paper straws and LED lights in the restaurant to avoid the harmful toxins emitted from burning paraffin wax candles.Read More >
