Forodhani means “Look out post” in kiswahili, which relates to the property’s perfect location: directly on Shela Beach, raised and overlooking the Indian Ocean channel that separates Lamu island from Manda island, with all breathtakingly peaceful views of the to and fro of traditional dhows entering and leaving the archipelago.
Newly built in authentic Swahili style and exquisitely finished, Forodhani House is spacious, bright and airy – a beautiful and admired coastal retreat. Comfortably sleeping 10 to 12 people in five en suite bedrooms (3 double bedrooms and 2 triple rooms), the property features a main lounge next to its infinity pool, a large dining area, two lounge bars and a fully-equipped kitchen.
Minutes from Peponi Hotel and on Shela Beach, Forodhani House also features lovely terraces from which to enjoy.
Swimming pool, sea swimming & water sports, boat excursions, cultural visits to Shela and Lamu villages.
