We loved our stay at Majlis. The rooms are huge, airy, well appointed, clean, and air conditioned.
The location is nice and quiet, away from busier Shela and crazy-busy Lamu, but those towns are easy to visit with boat transportation that is always available.
We can't say enough about the staff. Enjoy a sunset dhow excursion with Captains Jamaica, Nassir, and Katana. They are wonderful hosts and entertainers.
Many menu items at the restaurant were more adventurous than our tastes, but what we did have was very good. I know they are proud of their restaurant, but the best, hands down, are their wood-fired pizzas. We couldn't stop ordering them!
The facility and grounds are spectacular, the staff are great, and you can still enjoy Lamu and Shela without compromising your comfort and luxury.
