Lamu Banana House and Wellness Center is the ideal destination for travelers seeking to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of their surroundings and experience a variety of holistic wellness activities in a completely relaxed atmosphere. Situated in Shela on Lamu Island, this five-star boutique hotel feels as if it is totally removed from the outside world, although it is only minutes away from the pristine Shela Beach.
This luxury hotel is designed to feel more like a private residence with 16 rooms dispersed between three houses set amid a lush tropical garden. The rooms range in size from accommodations for single travelers to large multi-bedroom suites suitable for families and large groups. Every guestroom and all the common areas are decorated in the traditional Swahili style, with a multitude of sitting areas, hammocks, and daybeds inviting you to relax. The banana house offers remarkable views of the nearby sea, dunes, and tropical gardens. The swimming pool is a great place to unwind and is situated in a part of the gardens with an abundance of exotic birds.
The room rates include airport transfer and daily breakfast using only fresh local ingredients provided by the local farmers and fishers. The Banana House kitchen specially prepares each savory meal and will even provide savory vegetarian meals for guests. In addition, the friendly staff offers yoga sessions twice daily, spa treatments, massages, and courses in meditation, cooking, and henna painting. Guests can also meander to Shela Beach and enjoy several different water activities, including fishing, snorkeling, and sailing.
