Stayed for over a week at Banana house, Lamu in Februar 2012, together with a friend. This place is so special. We felt so much welcome and more than good taken care of by Monica and her staff. It is built in attractive Swahili style, with open spaces and veranda's where you can launch and relax. The whole atmosphere is tropical and quiet and provides many possibilities to relax and gain new energy. The spa treatments (foot reflexology!), yoga classes and fantastic meals (Lamu's best food if you like healthy, tastefull meals prepared with lots of attention) contribute to well being. What makes it special is that everything is done with respect to local culture. The view (not from the beach but a little higher from a top) is amazing, with sunrising and sunset, dhows and the sea. It is really a beautiful never-to-forget experience to visit Banana House at Lamu! It is the kind of place that you surely want to visit again when leaving.
