When Malik says on phone, what you see on the website is what you get, he means exactly that. Lovely furniture, antics you will not see anywhere else, rooms that are atleast 3 times the size of standard hotel rooms, a warm authentic floor and great hosting is what you will get from Baytil Ajaib. The stairs, though steep, add a classic simplicity to the building, yet sophisticated. The huge beds are a plus for a tired body. All the 4 apartments are unique in thier own way, and i plan to make 3 other trips to experience them all. I learnt alot from Malik about the Swahili culture, and ancient swahili architecture. He and team were simply fabulous.
