Just a stone's throw from Lamu Town, Red Pepper House opens up its doors to showcase the very best of Swahili culture. The architecture is considered to be among the most beautiful in Africa and each of its five houses enjoys a sea view. Perfectly integrated into its surroundings, the house is covered by a gigantic 'makuti' thatched roof, which rises and falls, creating natural forms.

The decor and the furniture mix the Swahili way of life with the colonial style of Lamu's palatial residences, taking us back to days gone by, complemented by African artworks and antique objects brought from different countries around the world.

The Red Pepper House offers just five exclusive 'nyumbas' (houses) each with the essence and luxury of Swahili culture, in natural surroundings and with views of the sea and the forest, allowing you to relax and enjoy with all five senses.

Designed to be bright and cool, each house is made up of five spaces: all of the sleeping areas follow the style of the luxurious traditional architecture, which is given its ample dimensions by the wooden beams adorning the ceilings.

The bedrooms have either one large bed or two single beds of different styles: Tundabel, Pili Pili or Indian Pili Pili, with mosquito net, so you can enjoy the sea breeze. There's an outside private space on the beach, with two large sun loungers under the shade of a Makuti. Each 'nyumba' has a discrete private butler to attend to your needs at home and to accompany you on visits and excursions if you so wish.

Lamu's Red Pepper House offers its guests an authentic journey of tastes, ranging from traditional Swahili cooking to the flavours of the Mediterranean.

The staff cooks with an eye to light, healthy cuisine, prepared using only the finest ingredients. Fresh organic vegetables, fish, seafood and barbecues, all washed down by delicious wines and drinks are available.

Perfect holiday!
Stayed with host as a couple in January 2014

We had a fabulous holiday at The Red Pepper House. Joseph and his team could not have done any more for us and their philosophy of putting the client first "it's your holiday so you decide what to wear, where to go and when to eat" is unique and saddly long forgotten by almost every hotel in the world. From the moment you are met at the airstrip to the moment you are returned there the service is faultless to a point that it would take far too long to detail it all. It is billed as the "Swahili Experience" and that is what they deliver - not a holiday but an experience. It is rare that we would return to an area (simply because there are many wonderful places to explore) however we will return to Lamu, but only to repeat the experience of staying at The Red Pepper House.
