This is a family owned guest house of twenty years standing and comprises Fatumas Tower, The Sand Castle, the Garden Cottage and now just added is the enchanted Baobab Cottage. (12 double rooms in total) All these are situated within our own lovely gardens and behind a high coral wall. Our front entrance door is always open; the wall is to keep the donkeys out. 


Lamu is the perfect sanctuary to get away from the crowds. Here you will discover the friendly Swahili culture, centuries of African history and magnificent empty beaches with miles of golden sand waiting for your footsteps.


Fatuma's Tower is situated in a sweep of verdant sand dunes and guests constantly remark they feel this soothing eneregy immediately on stepping through the front entrance into palpable space, peace and tranquility. Find out more about the rooms, apartments and cottages that we offer.


Fatuma's Tower has one of the only restaurants in the village that remains open during low season. Please make a reservation in advance so the chef can choose from the fishermen bringing round their last nights catch and prepare your dinner to be served under the stars in our peaceful gardens.
