My son and I finished our mission work in Kenya with a stay in Lamu. Fatuma's towers was a spiritual and amazingly peaceful place. The workers were extremely trust worthy, the food was freaking amazing, and my son made mention to return to Lamu when we returned to Kenya.
I am going back to Lamu in 2013 with my youth group and using this leg of our journey as a way to unwind before heading back to the states. And yes I will be staying at Fatuma's again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Carefully restored and modified in 1998 the historic Tower has five double bedrooms and a large yoga hall. Included behind the same compound wall is the Sand Castle with it's ground floor family apartment of three double rooms. In the surrounding gardens, the Garden Cottage has two double rooms both with bathrooms. The ten double rooms are all furnished with local antiques and fabrics in a simple yet elegant style to recreate the atmosphere of a fine Swahili house. No two rooms are the same and the cool, airy spaces retain an informal feel while several shaded balconies provide comfortable areas for avoiding too much sun and generally enjoying the peace and fresh air. The peaceful gardens have been recently " enlivened" by the refreshing sound of a fountain splashing over coral rocks into a small plunge pool. All rooms have solar powered hot water, fans and mosquito nets. ... more less
