Originally known as Galu Sea Lodge, our property has been lovingly created and built up by Hugh & Magdalena Rule over a 12 year period. From the humble beginnings of the old beach houses, they have created beautiful houses and apartments in a unique style that has made this one of the best places to stay on the south coast.
Those in-the-know have been coming here for years and most of the guests who stay at Tamani come back time and time again, year after year. It is they who have helped create the fantastic atmosphere of this place.
Great for families, for parties, for group gatherings or a honeymoon. This is where you can come and be spoiled by our cooks - eat fabulously-fresh seafood, plucked from the sea each day; try the local swahili dishes, inspired and influenced by the ancient sea-trade from India, Arabia and Africa with spices from Zanzibar and fresh coconut from our own trees.
You can sit at the dining table on the 1st floor and watch the dhows sail slowly by and, occasionally, the camels loping along the beach. Parents can relax and enjoy the sights while keeping an eye on their kids in the children's pool.
If you are active, this is a great place for kite-surfing, wind-surfing, diving, snorkeling and sailing to the reef in one of the local out-rigger sail boats, called 'ngalawa'. You can walk for miles on the beach and swim in the clear, warm water all day!
A short way down the coast is Wasini Island and the Marine National Park with it's stunning reefs, myriad of exotic tropical fish and dolphins galore. In fact this is one of the prime dolphin breeding areas of the east Africa coast.
Just come on down! There's a terrific team of people who work here and who are here to help you have a wonderful holiday.
