Inside a banda
Verandah swing bed

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.


Who's for a dawa?
Who's for a dawa?

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.
