Fodor's Review

Kijani House, located in right on the waterfront in Shela, is a mix of art deco and antique Swahili furniture. Rooms are in three converted Arab merchant houses grouped around a pretty central garden with swimming pool and are furnished with antiques sourced in Lamu and Zanzibar. There are high Swahili beds with colorful kikoi bedspreads, woven mats, and charming shutters over the windows. Although the rooms don't have any amenities, there's a tranquil, relaxed air to

the place; all rooms have a safe, and free Wi-fi. The hotel can arrange excellent dhow trips and tours of Lamu town.
