We have just spent four days at this wonderful place...a walled in compound of historic Sweahili homes, beautifully maintained, tastefully appointed, with rooms overlooking the beach lined with dhows and pedestrian/ donkey traffic (no motorized vehicles here!), and a lovely central courtyard and pool. The menus and wine options are first rate. The owners and staff provide impeccable service, including pick up and send off at the airport, and access to superb guides, ferry and dhow captains. Above all, there is excellent security, including regular army/police patrols of the area, and resident night guards, which make the blanket warnings against tourism in Lamu ridiculous. We have never felt safer or better taken care of. Make sure you go!!!!
