Forodhani House is a beautifull beachfront Holiday House situated at the beginning of Shella Beach, the very spot where decades ago a watch-post stood (Forodhani means watch-post in Kiswahili) controlling the to and fro of boats entering and leaving Lamu Island. The house is white, with round or Arabic arches which frame sea views, sky at day or night, and sails sliding silently. Palm trees, ylang-ylang’s, frangipanes, bougainvilleas add some colours and scents. And from Forodhani House, because of its so particular location, the show is always there : you are having breakfast and you happen suddenly to see school of sardines jumping, trying to escape barracudas, or dolphins swimming up the Channel, or a fisherman’s dhow sliding from one arch to the other, coming from the open seas with load of tunas.

Forodhani House comes with 6 professional, friendly staff, among them an excellent cook.

 We want to make sure your holidays here, whether with family or friends, are both relaxing and interesting. And a bit magic too !
