It's magical to wake up outdoors on the rooftop-terrace and watch the sun rise over Lamu, and then start the day with omelette and fresh fruit. And thank you Bahati for teaching us to play Bao, we are still playing. When in Lamu I can also recommend dhow-sailing with captain Simba, his crew cook amazing food.

I was a bit scared about flying to Lamu alone and choosing a hotel through a website but I had a fantastic time. The hotel was nice, clean, confortable and just a few steps from every where. I felt safe and very warmly welcomed. Hope to be back! Thanks Bahati for your kind hospitality.

We had a great experience. The rooms were exactly what we were looking for: clean and at a reasonable price. The terrace has always been a great spot to meet other people and spend time in talking and listening good music. The staff has been always great.

“We stayed in the rooftop apartment. I can really recommend that to have a chance to sleep outdoors, and experience the breeze and the sunrise. But if you are sensitive to sounds the rooftop terrace also comes with prayercalls from the mosques and the donkeys crying out their sorrow :)”
