LOVED our suite in the third floor with its HUGE TERRACE overlooking the area and over to the sea! Nice spacious washroom. Very forthcoming and skilled staff, going out of their way to make you feel special. And if you want tranquility, they'll completely leave you alone, keeping steadily ready in the background. Wifi was also good, important because we were working mobile with many video conferences in our schedule

Jua House

Lamu

Located within 0.7 mi of Manda Beach and 1.9 mi of Gallery Baraka in Lamu, Jua House features accommodations with free WiFi and seating area. I was on Lamu for 2 nights/1 day, and the best time I spent there was during my leisurely mornings at Jua House. The place is stunning, so well thought through, peaceful and comfortable. I wouldn’t have wanted to stay anywhere else from what I’ve seen on the island

Diamond Beach Village

Lamu

Diamond Beach Village offers traditional Swahili thatched roof huts located directly on a private beach. Each has a furnished patio with views of the Indian Ocean. I loved the staff, they were so friendly and so helpful, I have definitely made friends there. The views were to die for, the hotel was even better than I expected. I love the village concept where every room has its own area to relax and it’s literally like you’re in little house. I love that it’s an eco friendly hotel so everything is made from nature. I love loved loved it!
