Lamu House is a collection of properties in Lamu Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lamu House Hotel is located on the sea front and has 10 individually designed rooms, several swimming pools, courtyards, terraces and more. The property was originally one house and an empty plot that was remodelled and combined to form the Hotel as we know it now. The hotel preserves all the charm of traditional Swahili architecture and it is designed to satisfy the needs of clients and travellers that choose to stay in the historic centre of Lamu town. All the rooms are different, each one possesses its own character and is equipped with a spacious bathroom, a dressing room and a private terrace.

Swahili Dreams is a collection of 9 apartments minutes away through the narrow streets of town, the main corniche and Lamu House Hotel. The apartments have magnificent views, suited with all the comforts and are fully modernized. The apartments are unique to Lamu and can be rented for extended periods of time. While keeping with the traditional architecture and feel of Lamu, they are made with all modern connivances and subtle attention to detail.

Moonrise is the restaurant associated with Lamu House Hotel and is open to guests and public alike. The menu caters for all tastes and dietary needs. An excellent chef provides a variety of gastronomic delights from local Kenyan dishes naturally combined with the best international cuisine.

The properties offer a truly personal experience, with dedicated staff that will look after all the details of your stay.
