The Majlis is a privately owned resort set on Manda Island in the Lamu archipelago off Kenya’s north coast. Offering world class understated luxury, the hotel is elegantly designed and boasts the best views of the breathtaking Ras Kitau bay.

Only a 10 minutes boat ride to Lamu town, the hotel reflects Lamu’s traditional heritage with its subtle fusion of Swahili, Arabic and Indian architectural influences.

With 25 exquisite deluxe rooms, our guests can enjoy the tropical location in western comfort. With traditional high-beamed ceilings, large window terraces and “baraza” seating areas, the ensuite rooms offer stunning views of the gardens, swimming pools and the endless Indian Ocean.

Each of the hotel’s air-conditioned rooms is unique in character and style, and features traditionally high beamed ceilings and terraces with spectacular views of the beach, landscaped gardens or mangrove forests. Tastefully designed and decorated to reflect the heritage of East Africa, The Majlis houses an exquisite private collection of art mixing local traditional influences with a contemporary twist
