We were there last August for four days, and was the best experience I have ever felt in a hotel...
Exclusive facilities, including a Dhow (local sailing boat).
Very very nice staff, always ensuring that our stay there was perfect.
Awesome venue, with charming surroundings, and beautiful isles close to Lamu.
Is also important to visit ANIDAN, the NGO placed next to the Red Pepper House, and enjoy listening the kids playing drums there
