All these are situated within our own lovely gardens and behind a high coral wall, sheltered by the sand dunes of Shela.

In 1998 the ruin of a Swahili house was restored by Gillies and Fiammetta. They put all their love into this project and ran it until 2020 as a guest house, yoga retreat and they will continue doing so on the same compound in the Sand Castle and the Baobab Cottage......


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.
