This is a beautiful luxury resort right on the Manda Island beach front.
The elegant décor and architecture exude the African, Arabic coastal fusion that is Lamu!
It is fantastic fun to take a boat ride to Majlis from Manda Island Airport and be warmly welcomed by local drumming.
The full board option made life very easy with a sumptuous buffet breakfast and delicious à la carte menu for lunch and dinner.
Our room did not face the sea but it was spacious and comfortable. It didn’t matter as we were outside by the pool, on a beach bed or swimming.
The resort faces a large channel and Shela.
We were there for New Years Eve and enjoyed the festivities!
There were water taxis, constantly cruising the shore, to take you to old Lamu town, Shela or tours. They were reliable and inexpensive in our experience.

The Majlis... what an amazing place. Great room, very friendly staff, beautiful beach! They have quite a few activities that’ll keep you busy, or you could just kick back and relax at the beach. Would recommend the tour to Lamu.

I spent the weekend at Majlis and highly recommend it.

The beach is pristine and secluded.

The resort has several watersports activities and relaxing outdoor beds at different spots.

The rooms are clean and spacious, the restaurant has great menu options, and the staff are very friendly.

Thanks Enrico and team!

Spent two nights at the Majlis this August
GORGEOUS place, very friendly and helpful staff, good food as well, couldn’t think of a better place to relax and wind down
Beautiful pools, kayaking included
Not much around so nice and quiet, but easily accessible hotels and restaurants by boat
The sunsets are unparalleled
Definitely will be back for more time this time!!
