We also had dinners at the Chumba Cafe and the food was good as well as the service. Overall, I would recommend this establishment to everyone who seeks a comfortable, warm...

I was very pleased with my stay. Rooms were nice and comfortable and service excellent. I enjoyed my breakfast and meals at the restaurant on the compound too. I only wished that the pool had been working as I had hoped to use it. Thank you for a lovely stay. Diana

King's Post is beautifully decorated in the Swahili Coast stylings of Lamu and Zanzibar. Traditional beds, colorful lanterns, vast rugs, and sophisticated cushions make this a very comfortable and fun place to stay. This place is ideal for those needing more than 3-4 nights as it comes with a kitchen including full refrigerator, stove, hot water heater, and more. Easy...

I very much liked the Swahili Style of the compound and the laid-back feeling. The appartments are very clean and the equipment/furniture is well maintained and of good quality. Staff is really friendly. I especially enjoyed the in-house café bar and restaurant.
