Lamu Island Luxury Beach Holidays
A selection of exclusive Swahili beach mansions on one of the world’s most private beaches – The Lamu Archipelago just off the Kenya Coast.
Exclusive, private, pristine
On the southernmost tip of Lamu Island, backed by dunes and palm trees, is Kizingoni Beach, a blue-gold sweep of sand, just a few miles down the coast from the living Swahili museum that is Lamu Town. Privately owned, the beach is deserted; but for a few local fishermen, and two gracious dhows anchored in the deep blue water of the sea channel. Behind it run miles of sand dunes interspersed with palms and low grey-green shrub. Privacy and exclusivity are guaranteed.
The style of these Lamu Kenya properties is distinctive and places ultimate emphasis on relaxation. There are swinging day beds, shaded beach gazebos, breeze-cooled roof terraces, and cool white sofas. Each holiday house also has its own speedboat and captain, available for water sports, marine reserve exploration, BBQs on deserted islands, turtle tracking, swimming with dolphins and more. Two luxury dhows await orders for dawn dives and sunset cruises. Camels can transport ‘sundowners’ up into the dunes.
Venue, venue, venue
Supremely adaptable, professionally catered, idyllically set and uniquely defined by the breadth of styles and themes it can present, this Lamu Island accommodation represents a complete escape from the typical Lamu hotel accommodation. It is also renowned for its wedding and honeymoon venues portfolio. This multi-facetted beach resort is also emerging as one of the world’s most innovative venues for high-profile corporate events and incentives options.
Lamu is renowned for its deep-sea fishing, with Kiwayu one of the top 10 sites in the world.
Across from Kizingoni Beach, on the mainland, lies Kenyatta Lake, an area of pristine indigenous bush and rich in wildlife.
Kizingoni Beach is a perfect venue for weddings, parties and large family gatherings.
