This was an amazing place situated in a beautiful old stone house. You can feel that the owners have put their heart and soul into the place and they are very helpful looking after every detail of you stay. Each and every room is individually decorated and the boundaries between inside outside is blurred with the lovely galleries where you can have a sun down in the evening or just relax. With just a few rooms you will found the atmosphere in the house very calm and friendly and you will feel like home (or wish it was your actual home…).
The house is located only a five minutes walk from the jetty, where you will find the “taxis” (boats) taking you to the beach or wherever you want to go. You will also find many good restaurants and small shops within just a few walking minuets. I would strongly recommend having dinner at their restaurant, Karkadeh, at least one evening of your stay. Get ready for a real feast as Michael, their excellent chef, won’t let you down.
The eco-friendly concept strongly appeals to me and with eco-san toilets and the “law” of the three R’s, reduces, reuse, recycle, deeply rooted and advocated. Christina and Paul try really hard to reduce the hotels ecological footprint on Lamus’ fragile environment and hopefully their work will inspire other hotels to choose the same path.
