10/10 Exceptional

A haven of tranquility in noisy, dirty Lamu (which I love by the way). The Moonlight restaurant is a fine place to sit and have a quiet drink or meal under the shady flame tree; the pool a welcome place to cool off after the heat of the day. All very attractive in the old courtyard. The rooms a simple, but clean, furnished in traditional Swahili style. The staff, especially Esther on front desk, extremely helpful, arranging expeditions, finding old friends etc. Strongly recommend if you are staying in Lamu town.

Excellent property; the best in Lamu town. Beautiful pool area, and the restaurant has the best food in town as well. At checkin we were warmly welcomed, and upgraded to a superior suite on the rooftop. All around an amazing stay and highly recommend this property!

An absolute gem in Lamu Town
This lovely hotel is located right in the heart of Lamu Town, which for me was much more interesting than staying on Shela Beach. I experienced the best hospitality at this hotel that I have ever received (and I travel a LOT)! Olga was an outstanding hostess that really made sure I enjoyed every moment of my stay in this amazing and beautiful destination, and the rest of the staff were also quite friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is architecturally stunning, with all kinds of unique and traditional features and touches around every corner. It is really a photographer's dream as the light filters in from all kinds of interesting angles throughout the day to highlight the many charming details and furnishings. You can catch a boat to Shela (or other points) right outside the door, but there's also a refreshing pool in the courtyard where the hotel hosts movies and musical events featuring some very talented musicians. I stayed in a room overlooking the sea and enjoyed spectacular views and sunsets from a very comfortable balcony. There is also a great restaurant with tasty food on site. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and dream of the day I can return. Five stars on everything!!! Thank you for a fantastic stay! (Note: the Hotels.com website gives the option of booking specific rooms, but if a sea view room is your preference, be sure to contact the hotel to ensure that one is actually available.)
