The Majlis has become one of the most popular hotels in Lamu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site town. The Majlis hotel’s super relaxed atmosphere, is combined with real luxury and comfort. This is a luxury beach hotel on Manda Island, off Kenya’s Northern Coast, with a superb beachfront location and breathtaking views over the bay and Lamu Island.

The Majilis has just 25 superbly appointed Superior and Deluxe rooms, Junior and Royal suites divided into 3 villas. Each individually decorated en-suite bedroom is spacious, well appointed, and fully air-conditioned. The Majlis restaurant will not fail to impress with a panoramic view of the bay and the finest cuisine. Additional state-of-the-art facilities include two bars and two swimming pools under the shade of acacia and palm trees. Each pool has panoramic views over the seafront overlooking both Ras Kitau bay and Shela village on Lamu Island.

Located on the sea front, with the endless East African white sandy beaches there is a great range of activities on offer at the Majlis. The activities focus on wellness, adventure, Swahili culture, sailing, water sports, and fishing for adults as well as families who visit the resort along with children. You can use one of the hotel’s speed boats for water skiing, learning to kite surf or deep sea fishing. If the sea is not for you, there are plenty of options for exploring Lamu and surrounding areas.
