Manda Bay is an exotic beach hotel located on one of the many unspoilt, idyllic islands within the Lamu archipelago. Situated on the northwestern tip of Manda Island, the resort is set in the calm inshore waters on a long sandy protected beach.
Surrounded by miles of palm-fringed silky white sandy beaches and intriguing creeks, Manda Bay is the perfect getaway retreat. Manda Bay is a water sports paradise. Its sheltered mangrove creek and the calm waters are ideal for water skiing. Guests can ski at high tide, yet just outside the creek there is generally enough breeze for sailing, wind-surfing and kite-surfing.
For centuries this has been a calling point for the Arab dhow traders, a safe haven where nature is allowed to take its course without the interference of the modern world, and this tranquil ambience permeates the resort.
There are 16 luxurious cottages (11 beachfront and 5 seaview) flawlessly-designed and in keeping with the local landscape.
9 of the rooms are set right along the sea front with the other rooms set in-between and slightly behind. Each cottage has a large ceiling fan and refreshing showers inside the en suite bathrooms and private verandahs.
The Cuisine at Manda Bay naturally features a marine flavor, freshly caught tuna, Mangrove Crab and Prawns are a Manda Bay delicacy!
All the sea food is delivered fresh to the door by local fishermen and by our own fishing boats. Guests are able to sample their own catch. Fresh fruit, salads and vegetables are either grown at the lodge or flown in by air. There are provisions for vegetarians, children and special diets with prior notice.
Manda Bay also caters for any special requests and flexible mealtimes can be arranged to fit in with guest's individual requirements. Romantic candle lit dinners can be brought straight to your cottage verandah so that you enjoy total privacy.
