We stayed with the Majlis for 3 nights. Our stay was wonderful. The hotel has a sharp eye for art and design, gourmet dining, beautiful accommodations, and an extremely attentive staff. We could not finds any faults in our stay.
But to top it all off, on the day of our departure, our flight with fly 540 was suddenly cancelled (for no obvious reason) leaving us stranded on the dock at night near the airport. Fly 540 threatened to put us up in a hole in the wall hotel in Lamu. We were able to contact the Majlis through a local police officer, and the hotel returned to collect us and other guests, and allowed us to stay the night until the next available flight in the morning. I don't know what we would have done without Stefano, Peris, Evelyn, and the rest of the hotel staff. Its treating your guest like special persons that really sets this hotel apart.
