The Papillon Lagoon Reef Hotel is a Tourist hotel. Located in Beach area. Shopping is accessible by bus/taxi and the nightlife/restaurants are easily accessible by taxi or bus from the hotel.Despite sharing a name with a literary Frenchman famous for escaping prisons, escape will be the last thing on your mind while staying at the idyllic Papillion Lagoon Reef, in fact it would be a joy to spend a lifetime here. Built in a traditional Swahili style, the hotel is based on the stunning sands of Diani Beach, widely regarded as the finest in the whole of Kenya, and is surrounded by lush, exotic gardens, ancient baobab trees and even the odd misbehaving colobus monkey. The hotel\'s outstanding location makes it an excellent base from which to take a safari tour deep into the romantic African wilderness. Down on the beach, the alluring waters of the Indian Ocean await you and are best explored by scuba diving. The hotel\'s resident dive team will be happy to take you to the colourful and kaleidoscopic coral reefs that lie just off the coast.
