We had a great time at Fatuma's tower. Well maintained, professional courteous staff, welcoming accomodating and friendly owner. Good beds, reasonable pillows, ceiling fan, and always water for a shower. Excellent veranda areas. 5 min. walking pole pole to Peponi Hotel for sundowner, or lunch. It was very hot though when we were there, recommend different month to visit Lamu.
At lunch time the garden was too hot for us since there was not enough sea wind.
Ps: not recommended if you have fear of bats.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Carefully restored and modified in 1998 the historic Tower has five double bedrooms and a large yoga hall. Included behind the same compound wall is the Sand Castle with it's ground floor family apartment of three double rooms. In the surrounding gardens, the Garden Cottage has two double rooms both with bathrooms. The ten double rooms are all furnished with local antiques and fabrics in a simple yet elegant style to recreate the atmosphere of a fine Swahili house. No two rooms are the same and the cool, airy spaces retain an informal feel while several shaded balconies provide comfortable areas for avoiding too much sun and generally enjoying the peace and fresh air. The peaceful gardens have been recently " enlivened" by the refreshing sound of a fountain splashing over coral rocks into a small plunge pool. All rooms have solar powered hot water, fans and mosquito nets. ... more less
