Kizingoni Beach, with its wonderfully secluded and stylish beach houses, has quickly established itself as one of East Africa’s most sought-after destinations – renowned for its peace, privacy and luxury.
New for 2011, and sharing the same wonderful location and world-class service as Kizingoni’s larger family houses, is this collection of charming rustic cottages – specially designed for couples, honeymooners and (very) small groups.
Each cottage has a spacious double bedroom, bathroom and covered veranda terrace. Some are made entirely of mkeka and makuti palm thatch, others have coral stone foundations. All are beautifully furnished with Swahili antiques, local rustic furniture & fabrics and pieces from the Far East.
Sitting on a raised sand dune at the centre of Kizingoni Beach, the cottages share a fabulous elevated freshwater swimming pool. Beside the pool is a spacious thatched area for dining and relaxing – complete with swinging beds and sunloungers.
Kizingoni’s renowned chefs prepare and deliver a delicious daily menu of meals and drinks, which can be enjoyed on the top dining deck or in the privacy of your own banda. Attentive and discreet staff are always on hand to make sure your stay is as easy and relaxing as possible.
Situated close to the southern tip of the island, just 30 minutes by speedboat from Lamu Town, Shela village and Lamu airport, the cottages look out towards the Kenyan mainland. They enjoy panoramic views of the Lamu Channel , the Indian Ocean and spectacular sunsets.
The cottages are just a few moments from Kizingoni’s own quiet, sheltered and virtually private sandy beach. A few minutes’ walk takes you to miles of empty oceanfront and the dramatic dunes of the island’s main beach. Also within walking distance are the quiet seafront lodges Kizingo and Kipungani Bay.
Guests at Kizingoni Beach have access to a speedboat on request, and a variety of services and excursions are available by arrangement - including waterskiing, wakeboarding, kayaking and windsurfing , massages, dhow sailing, sea fishing and mainland vehicle safaris. Trips to historic Lamu Town and the archipelago’s other attractions can also be arranged.
At present there are 3 cottages available for rent, with a further three planned for Christmas 2011. Available now are the Frangipani Banda, the Palm Breezes Banda and the Castaways Banda. The Castaways Banda has a second twin bedroom.
