Lamu is a great place to get way from the hustle and bustle of city life to simply relax and unwind. My wife and I booked our trip through Kampur Travel Diaries who in a very personal, attentive to detail and hospitable manner took care of our wants end to end.

We have been coming to this wonderful hotel for many years, and it always meets our expectations or even exceeds them. The food keeps getting better, little details are added to the property and we always have a fantastic experience. This year which brought so many challenges, it felt even more special to be able to escape to this wonderful resort, which offers perfect beaches, two lovely pools to swim in, beautiful rooms and great, freshly cooked food and a very personalized service. The sunset dows are wonderful and lots of watersports on offer. our little four year old daughter loves it there too, and feels totally at home. Thank you team Majilis for yet another wonderful experience! We will be back soon!

What can I add when everything was so perfect and in one of the most amazing places in the world. The Majlis is beautifully managed, welcoming, peaceful and thoroughly wonderful. Will we go back? Many, many more times. The best holiday I have had in a very long time. Thank you Alejandra and Enrico. Well done!

The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Amazing food and service. Pretty delicious coastal dishes, some italian classics and the best sea food. Their their prices are 100% worth it. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and make great recommendations; notably I’d love to thank the “bar man” Mr. Anderson and his team (Onesmus, Kashuru & Mangi) for exemplary service. The staff is also really friendly (especially Alejandra Wolf). They know what they’re doing and what they’re talking about, and you can tell making the customers happy is their main priority. I’d definitely come back!
