After touring the Kenyan countryside, we concluded our trip on Lamu, staying in the Lamu House Hotel. The Lamu House is situated right on the water front in Lamu town. The hotel consists of a couple of joint Swahili style houses, a nice restaurant and lovely lounge area around a small pool. The room we stayed at, had entrance area... More

The Lamu House Beach Club is a typical Open restaurant with bar, big hand-made sunbeds and sun-shades on the beautiful beach with view over the sea to Shela beach, opposite Manda. The food is very fresh, especially the fish, grilled on barbecue. it's all original and in Swahili style. You can book the trip from Lamu town at Lamu House... More

It is a beautiful place but the owners are biased and very racial and rude. Did not stay there but went to see their gift shop which we found had moved to the fort.

Nice beachclub at Manda Island. Very relaxed atmosphere. We went for lunch and ordered grilled octopuss with salad. Very delicious. Nice wine and fantastic view to Lamu Island. The sea is crystal clear and the sand is extremely soft! On Sundays they have fix lunch with different dishes. than Local Strangers come to meet eachother and enjoy their free sunday.

We brought our own fresh lobster which they put on the bbq which was really very kind of them. We... More

The beach chairs were perfect for relaxing and they also had hammocks and seating near the bar area. We went on a Sunday when they had a pre-fixed price... More
