Freshwater swimming pool with all-day bar service, gift shop, safety deposit, generator-backed electricity supply, telephone coverage, internet links, and boat connections to Lamu Town and Manda airport.
The six spacious bandas sit at one end of Kipungani Bay, which is Swahili for 'the place of fresh air.' Shaded by the palm trees that line the 600-meter beachfront, the bandas are constructed entirely from local materials, with mkeka palm floors and makuti thatch roofs woven by the residents of the neighboring village. The large interiors are a picture of rustic simplicity with king-size beds, hand-made furniture, oceanfront verandas, and freshwater showers and flush toilets.
Snorkeling and swimming with dolphins on the house reefs, waterskiing, kayaking, sailing, sunset cruises aboard the Arab dhows, barracuda fishing, deep sea game fishing, crab-catching excursions, bird walks, and cultural tours. Tours include Lamu's historic mosques, markets, museums, the 14th century fort on Manda Island, boat-building and mat-weaving industries.
