The two apartments and four suites contained within this sprawling villa are imbued with a designer’s meticulous eye for detail. Simply but elegantly conceived, each suite is generous in size with features that pay homage to Lamu’s Golden Age. Traditional Swahili accents are complemented by high-spec fixtures and fittings while full-length French windows lead on to private balconies and verandas.
The Kasbah Junior suites command a spectacular view across the Manda Channel with sheltered balconies designed to catch the monsoon breeze. Each terrace features a small dining table and generous daybeds.
The Channel suite is a self-contained apartment complete with a fully equipped kitchen and a separate living and dining area. Spread across two floors, the top floor is taken up by the quirky ‘Captain’s Cabin’ – a perfect place to linger and watch the dhows sail by.
The Triangle Suite is an idyllic hideaway. Its large veranda is furnished with generous divans and overlooks The Kasbah’s jewel of a swimming pool.
The Dunes Suite commands impressive panoramic views across the ever-shifting sands of the dunes. Various terraces and a Makuti-topped pavillion have been designed to make the most of these spectacular vistas.
A little gem hidden away on the ground floor of The Kasbah, Baobab Suite is a one-bedroomed villa with its own separate entrance and swimming pool. A generous, well-appointed kitchen, living and dining area open out on to the patio where poolside sunbeds, shaded by an ancient Baobab, offer an irresistible invitation to lounge.
