Words and pictures don’t do this place justice.
This place is just LIT! The service quality and professionalism of the staff, the awesomeness of the building and the hospitality of the people of Lamu Island and Shela is out of this world.
Please don’t stop doing what you guys do.
Forodhani even as a house cannot escape a comparison to Peponi Hotel located just steps away. During construction, I marveled at the gracious design endorsement by the owners to the immediate environment and neighboring Peponi Hotel. Upon my first visit among a group of friends, I was treated to a feast of clever design features including an outdoor entrance foyer with a stone staircase leading to the outdoor terrace, a living room that is connected to a lap pool with a sitting ledge on one end that offers view to the water below, and all rooms face the water and have an outdoor terrace. This is such a well thought out living space that only gets better with the first rate service offered by the house staff. A must visit!
I just spent some amazing days at Forodhani House, and it was the best experience I could have ever wished for. Forodhani House is truly an amazing space, the food is fantastic, the entire property is exquisitely maintained and of very good taste, it has excellent service in and outside the house, an awesome range of activities, let alone the best view for sunrise, sunset and any time in between. The energy here is fantastic, with the sea right outside the front door and the friendly, bubbly local community all around - it's the perfect location one could look for on a special day, like a birthday, a romantic get away, or simply being with a group of very good friends. Forodhani House is a truly 5 stars experience, no question!
If I had a choice I would stay at Forodhani forever!!!
The house is very beautiful, spacious, divine and has the best interior decor ever!!!Perfection at it's best.
The rooms are very spacious and clean and with the best views ever!
You can catch the sunrise and sunset even without living the house.
The staff are the most well mannered, polite and friendly people I've ever met.
Amos is the best and such a brilliant chef. We almost wanted to take him back to Nairobi with us, we're still thinking of it ;-).You can't even describe the culinary experience,you just to experience it yourself to believe it. Cosmus and the rest are just the perfect staff you would want to get.
Isabelle was very friendly and informative.
She arranged for us a tour to the old town which was so amazing and water skiing by Nawaf and you wouldn't regret it.
I have recommended Forodhani and will still recommend it.
The staff at Forodhani were very professional and friendly and catered to all of our needs. Amos was such a brilliant chef. We almost wanted to take him back to Nairobi with us. Forodhani house is so gorgeous by the ocean providing such a scenic view. I would advise anyone staying here to catch the sunrise from the outside seating area. It was out of this world. This was my second time staying here this year and I honestly can't wait to be back in this paradise again. Thank you Forodhani!

We stayed for 4 nights with a group of 8 friends at the end of an African safari. We all loved the house and staff and enjoyed going for dhow sails, guided walks and unguided beach walks, as well as staying put in the villa and chilling out. The food cooked by our lovely staff was great and no need to go elsewhere for a meal. Evening movies were a highlight, though English titles were scarce. A few issues we had at the beginning were quickly dealt with, and leading up to our stay, Isabelle, the owner provided lots of information and reassurance. A great way to end our journey and we all dream of returning.

I am absolutely obsessed with this property! This was my second time going back and it was even more beautiful than I remembered.
This beach front villa is perfect for those looking for a serene, intimate and tasteful experience. The rooms are pretty spacious with views of the ocean and the staff was incredibly kind and welcoming! And don't even get me started on the food - I added 2 kilos in just 3 days thanks to Chef Amos' cooking! Divine.
I'd highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique getaway.
