The SpaceYou enjoy a stunning location really, maybe the best in Lamu : you are on the beach, some meters only from Shella Village and Peponi Terrace, with stunning 270° sea-views on Indian Ocean.
It's the very spot where decades ago a watch-post stood (Forodhani means watch-post in Kiswahili) controlling the to and fro of boats entering and leaving Lamu Island.
Here you will relax fully, get lulled by the lapping waves, pamper yourself with good cooking, massages and yoga, enjoy the 12kms long pristine white sand beach and its activities… sailing, swimming, snorkelling, running, kite, windsurf, wakeboard or waterski, fishing… you can also explore, discover Lamu Old Town, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and Shella Village, experience the rich Swahili culture and its very welcoming atmosphere... And take the most of Nature, which is truly at its best.
The house is white, with round or Arabic arches which frame sea views, sky at day or night.
It features 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms (sleeps 10-12 guests), lots of different terraces, lounging areas to take it easy, a airy and spacy main lounge, a garden, a pool.
And from Forodhani House, because of its so particular location, the show is always there : you are having breakfast and you happen suddenly to see school of sardines jumping, trying to escape barracudas, or dolphins swimming up the Channel, or a fisherman’s dhow sliding from one arch to the other, coming from the open seas with load of tunas.
Forodhani House comes with 5 professional, friendly staff, among them an excellent cook.
Included in your stay:
-Airport Transfert, from/to Lamu/Manda airport
-Cook, room stewards, watchman, laundry
-On-location manager who can assist you to organize all activities
