A de luxe hotel between an acacia forest and red pepper trees and a virgin beach.
Builded with the traditional Swahili architecture, giving you the feeling that you are in an old Swahili village but surrounded by luxury and elegancy and relax with the sounds of the dozens of birds of the forest.
It has 5 nyumbas (houses) which have whatever you need. The outside veranta is the perfect place to relax or have a nap after lunch.
The best i liked was the staff which were all very proffesional and always with a smile and being always with a good mood, the food that was fantastic and its unique location in the coast of Lamu.
