Kilamawingu House, Shela Village

An exceptionally charming, spacious and beautifully-furnished family house with swimming pool, set in lovely gardens close to the seafront in Shela village, Kilamawingu is one of the most characterful, luxurious and well-appointed places to stay on the island.

“The house is exquisite, the staff are attentive and served up delicious meals and made such an effort to ensure we really enjoyed our stay including elaborately decorating the outside dining area on New Year’s Eve! The location was perfect for quick trips to Peponi or the jetty for boat trips. The manager looked after us well ensuring we had everything we wanted.”
