There are eight very spacious bandas with high-pitched thatched roofs and shaded verandahs tucked into the dunes and on the beach. Each has a large double bed draped with mosquito netting and comfortable chairs for lounging. Bamboo screens unfurl to give complete privacy. The large en suite bathroom has a flushing toilet, hot water shower, wash basin and dressing area. On the verandah overlooking the sea is a Lamu swing bed that is impossible to resist.

Dining

We are a family of foodies and from a very long line, so if like us eating gives you pleasure, you should enjoy the fresh fish such as red snapper, crab and lobster, all served with locally-grown vegetables and salads and prepared by our chef Kanchora. All our bread is freshly baked every morning in a clay oven. Meals are silver service with a starter, main course and a pudding. We can also accommodate special diets as well as cater for vegetarians, or carnivores.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are all included in the room rate. There is a selection of wines from South Africa, Chile and Italy. Ask Alex or Tom to mix a Dawa or a Naughty Tom which should guarantee a good night’s sleep.

A wonderful secluded and tranquil escape from the modern world. Situated at one end of a spectacular 12-kilometre beach that stretches from Kizingo (which means 'the point’ in Swahili) to the fashionable village of Shela

The swimming is excellent, both in the Indian Ocean and in the calm waters of the channel that separates Lamu from the mainland. For the more energetic there is a big choice of activities including a guided tour of historic Lamu Town, excellent snorkelling, the chance to swim with dolphins in the winter months and cycle rides to friendly African villages on the mainland.

All eight beautifully appointed bandas (thatched cottages) are set well apart from each other. The very spacious bandas boast high-pitched thatched roofs and shaded balconies right on the beach. Each has a large double bed romantically draped with mosquito netting and comfortable chairs for lounging. Bamboo screens unfurl to give complete privacy.

The en suite bathroom is well appointed with a flushing toilet, hot water shower, wash basin and dressing area. Guests can be as private or as social as they wish, opting to enjoy fine dining on the balcony of their banda or join other guests in the bar and the dining room with their magnficent views across the bay to mainland Kenya where giant baobab trees spread into the brilliant blue sky.

Chefs James and John prepare delicious lunches and dinners in the restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean using only the freshest local produce. Fish and seafood are the specialities, red snapper, crab and lobster, all served with locally-grown vegetables and salads. Kizingo can accommodate special diets and create interesting dishes for vegetarians, or carnivores.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the room rates as well as afternoon tea with homemade cake. There are fine wines from South Africa, Chile and Italy. Ask the barman Alex to mix a Dawa using local fresh limes or a Lala Salama which guarantees a sound night’s sleep.
