A large, cool beach front house for twelve to fourteen (12 to 14) people with four double rooms and one dormitory style quadruple, all ensuite.
On the first floor, raised above beach level, there is a stunning, edgeless fresh water swimming pool. It has a bar area and low comfortable baraza seats.
Up the first flight of stairs is a large dining and living room, leading out onto an alfresco terrace, shaded by huge entwined acacia and baobab trees.
Another door leads onto the wooden deck above the pool – a perfect dining area – and to two double bedrooms with their own private terraces.
The third floor comprises two double bedrooms plus a children’s room with 4 large Lamu four-poster single beds and an open terrace with space for sunbathing.
From the rooftop with its bar, lounge and two swinging beds you can enjoy panoramic views of the whole Lamu channel, watch the fishing dhows return, dolphins pass and the moon rise.
On the hilltop, in the dunes behind Beach House, one can enjoy sitting in the gazebo with a stunning view of the Indian Ocean and the shoreline of the neighbouring Kitau on Manda Island. Our guests do not only enjoy this pavilion during sundown hours.
The house cook will do all your catering. He will bake bread, suggest menus and cook excellent Swahili fish dishes. Basic foodstuffs, fresh seasonal vegetables and fruit are available in the local Lamu market, while other supplies are flown down from Nairobi. Fish, lobster, crab and fresh oysters come to the door or can be ordered.
If you choose this option, the cook will still do all your shopping and keep a record of your expenditure for every meal he prepares for you. Please bring luxury food items and condiments with you. Fresh dairy products, meat and chicken are difficult to find in Lamu. There is a small supply of goods not available on the island for sale in the hotel's store.
