THE MAJLIS RESORT IN LAMU - MANDA

Navigation Tip - Go Directly To Prices, Reviews, Map, Photos, Video & Room Rate Guide For The Majlis Resort

The Majlis Resort on Manda Island (part of Lamu archipelago) exemplifies the character of Lamu while offering you a refined beach holiday on the Indian Ocean – best suited for honeymooners, romantics escapaders and discerning families with children who require a discrete seaside and culture experience of Africa. As a World Heritage UNESCO Site, Lamu is globally recognized as a quintessential Swahili township that has maintained the architecture and traditions that once dominated the Kenyan coastline. The architecture of the Majlis accommodation highlights the many cultures that are an integral part of the Lamu history that you will discover during your fascinating AfricanMecca beach tour of the Kenyan coastline. The property’s three coral rock and native timber villas house a total of 25 luxury guest rooms and suites. The Superior Room, although the smallest of the room choices yet spacious, is simple elegance – large windows allow natural light to flow over the sophisticated décor that includes a large canopied bed, handsome writing desk, cozy armchair, full bathroom, and outside the gardens beckon you into a state of complete serenity. The Deluxe Rooms offer you the option of a beach veranda or sea-view balcony. Families have an unrivaled Lamu seaside vacation in one of Majlis Resort’s Family Suite that features interconnecting double and twin rooms, dual spacious private terraces and two full bathrooms. Also available is one very spacious Junior Suite that has a dual garden and sea view from its terrace; however, the enchanting views and quiet sophistication awaits you in the Royal Suite, a boutique apartment design that includes the size of two junior suites, complete with separate living area, two full bathrooms and large sea-facing terrace. All rooms are air conditioned for your comfort and we recommend the rooms with sea views for breathtaking twilights.

The distinctive architecture and mouthwatering delights of Majlis Restaurant will pleasantly distract you from your activity-rich coastal travel on Lamu Island with AfricanMecca as you seek to graciously satisfy your appetite. The restaurant specializes in Italian, Japanese and international fare, as well as local Swahili favorites and it is open to the public as well as guests of the hotel. The open plan of the restaurant and bar gives you panoramic views of Ras Kitau Bay, and the exquisite crystal and china tell of the superb delights that will soon arrive at your table. Prepared with local, seasonal produce and fresh seafood purchased earlier in the day, the dishes will satisfy even the most exacting foodie. Uncovering the charm of Lamu Island is paramount to your rejuvenating beach trip in East Africa, as the destination is unlike any other coastal setting in the world. Whether you prefer the heart-pounding intensity of deep sea fishing in Lamu, kitesurfing, snorkeling and the many other aquatic activities, or simply wish to leisurely walk the narrow alleyways of a classic, well-preserved Swahili town, the island of Manda in Lamu is the place for you to enjoy the best of the Kenyan coastline. Even the younger family members can have an exceptional time at Majlis Resort, with kid-friendly activities such as Swahili cooking classes, snorkeling, Maasai Warrior experience, dhow adventure and many other programs that are specially designed for young minds and bodies. There is also a pool where you can safely dip in with your family.

  • AfricanMecca Safari could not have been more helpful through the entire process of planning our trip to Kenya. Our trip to Lamu (a suggestion by Raza) was incredible, and Kizingo is a perfect place to stay there. All in all, we had an amazing time in Kenya.
    Jordan Klein & Anna Kohanski - New York, United States
  • Lamu was fabulous. hot and sunny and we again were delighted with our accommodation. Everything was run smoothly and without any hitches and we are most grateful for a truly memorable holiday of a life time. You organised everything efficiently which made life so easy for us.
    Angela Cook - London, United Kingdom
  • I had just the BEST time in Lamu - quite probably the holiday of my life - and am determined to go back in November. I have to say, the holiday was made by Altaf's dedication to what I needed - he worked very hard to ensure I got the full ten night stay at Kipungani, and I was impressed to say the least. Many thanks - I'll be back.
    Jeremy King, Senior Producer GMTV - London, United Kingdom
  • Raza, I have returned from the trip to Kenya you arranged. It went quite well and all of your advice about hotels etc was correct and prevented me from doing things less than optimal. I really enjoyed Lamu; it is one of the best beaches I have seen.
    Dr Thomas Walshe - Boston, Massachusetts - United States
  • Raza, I want to tell you that all aspects of our travel arrangements with you ran smoothly. Our visit to Lamu was most enjoyable and a pleasant contrast to the highlands. I will unreservedly recommend AfricanMecca to others.
    Peter Moody - Cape Town, South Africa
  • I wanted to email you to say how well all your arrangements came together for Lamu - Peponi Hotel. The logistics worked very well, the venues fulfilled all expectations - the whole experience was splendid.
    Robyn Taylor - Brisbane, Australia
  • Lamu Palace was really quite exotic, with again wonderful people, in great location, I felt like I was in the movie Casablanca. I will recommend your company to anyone I know travelling to Kenya. In deep appreciation...
