Description

Forodhani House is a beautiful beachfront Holiday House located on Shella Beach, at the very spot where decades ago a watch-post stood (Forodhani means watch-post in Kiswahili) controlling the to and fro of boats entering and leaving Lamu Island.

That’s the first thing which will make your stay here so special: you are on the beach, some meters only from Shella Village and Peponi Terrace, with stunning 270° sea-views on Indian Ocean.

Here you will relax fully, get lulled by the lapping waves, pamper yourself with good cooking, massages and yoga, enjoy the 12 km long pristine white sand beach and its activities… sailing, swimming, snorkelling, kite, windsurf, wakeboard or waterski, fishing… you can also explore, discover Lamu Old Town, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and Shella Village, experience the rich Swahili culture and its very welcoming atmosphere... And take the most of Nature, which is truly at its best.

The house is white, with round or Arabic arches which frame sea views, sky at day or night.
It features five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, lots of different terraces, lounging areas to take it easy, an airy and spacy main lounge, a garden, a pool. And from Forodhani House, because of its so particular location, the show is always there: you are having breakfast and you happen suddenly to see school of sardines jumping, trying to escape barracudas, or dolphins swimming up the Channel, or a fisherman’s dhow sliding from one arch to the other, coming from the open seas with load of tunas.

Forodhani House comes with five professional, friendly staff, among them an excellent cook. We want to make sure your holidays here, whether with family or friends, are both relaxing and interesting. And a bit magic too!

Children's Facilities: Babysitting facilities available.
