Third floor. "It’s high but it’s heaven" (and rapidly becoming something of a honeymooner’s haven….). A glorious spacious airy room with distant views of the sea down to Lamu and direct access to the rooftop sundeck.

房源

The 18th Century ruin was last lived in by a Swhaili noble woman over an hundred years ago and was then left deserted and fell into ruin. We restored it with modern ‘improvements’, included a yoga hall and built ourselves an ajoining house (the Sand Castle) and also a Garden Cottage. It might sound crowded but all fits together in harmony and leaves us lots of garden space. We added a small and very popular plunge pool some years ago. Most of the year guests take meals in the garden which is full of palms and greenery, we left natural sand on the ground which is moistened and racked daily. As one guest remarked with delight “probably only the Emporer of Japan and I are breakfasting in a garden such as this”.

Behind us are the sand dunes covered in greenery and full of birds and monkies. To get to the beach you have a five minute walk through the village past all the traditional local shops and their friendly owners or there is a spectacular 15 minute walk out of our front entrance and over the dunes. We do it at sun rise every day and it refreshes the soul. I also give a daily afternoon one hour yoga class open to all costing $8.

This is the best place to stay on Lamu Island! My boyfriend and I stayed for a week and didn't want to leave. The staff make it such an incredible experience, so friendly and welcoming. The food was our favorite out of every place we ate and we tried many places (including Peponi). The chef created a feast for the both of us and each bite was mouthwatering. It truly felt like a five star customer service experience. The staff easily accommodated all of our needs and went far beyond our expectations. Alfred was able to find a solution to any and all of our needs and even helped us multiple times when we got lost wondering the streets. Joseph was great at managing and logistics for little day trips we wanted to take, as well as getting us to and from the airport. Fatumas is located towards the back of Shela Village but you truly get to explore so much with the location. Gillies, our very humble host, took us on a breathtaking Dhow ride that we will never forget. We were able to do morning yoga right at the house. The beach is endless giving you the feel that you are on your own private island. Quick 10 minute trip to Manda Island across or Old Town. The whole island gets dark at night and we could see more stars than ever. We are very excited to come back soon someday! If going to Lamu Island this is the place to be, complete paradise.

Our stay at Fatuma's Tower was exceptional. The beauty and peacefulness of this place is overwhelming and the staff is the best you can have. You don't have to worry too much about planning in advance - if you feel like having a guided tour in the old town or a little sailing trip somebody will be there to help you find the right person; if not you just go ahead and enjoy the long beach of Shela or the beautiful architecture of the buildings. Same for lunch and dinner - you can decide in the morning if you want to eat in Gillies' adorable garden and the chef will prepare you a great dish with freshly caught fish or similar. Thanks for having us, we hope to come back soon :) Greeting to all the staff members!

Highly recommend staying with Gillie's. Great location, wonderful staff and gracious host. I look forward to returning again soon. Was exactly what I was looking for in my escape from Nairobi for the weekend. Asante sana.

We considered many places in Shella (Peponi included) and on the basis of the rates, facilities, description and reviews, we zeroed down on Fatumas Tower. And I think it was the best decision of our trip to Kenya. On arriving at Fatumas, we got more than what we had expected. Fatumas was well maintained and in its top form. The rooms were clean, well done and well equipped. But apart from all the amenities, we were super impressed with how tastefully they were done. The entire property lives up to authentic Swahili style of houses. Every corner of the house and the room we were staying in is done with a lot of attention. One of the best parts of Fatumas is the relaxed homely environment - quiet and peaceful, no interference by anyone, freedom to have your meal anywhere you please (just tell the staff), etc. Another really good thing about Fatumas Tower that makes it a really great place to stay is the people. The staff is extremely polite and friendly. They don’t overstep your privacy limits but they are always there to help you with anything. They take care of just enough things that you have a wonderful and relaxing stay but still don’t feel as if you are staying in a hotel. Gillies, the owner, made sure that we had a great stay and gave us some really good information on Lamu town and Shella. It was always great talking to Gillies. His abundance of knowledge and experience of staying in Kenya added to the charm of staying at his place. For all practical purposes, Joseph was our go-to guy for everything. He personally attended to us (picked us up from Manda airport), guided us around, made us better aware of the place and especially informed us about the DOs and DONTs. He is super friendly and made sure that we had all the things we needed. When we are back in Lamu, Fatumas Tower is going to be our choice again undoubtedly.

We so, so enjoyed our stay at the Acacia suite. Considering how affordable it is, we were very pleasantly surprised by the luxurious feel of the balcony, room and compound and the really excellent service from the staff. Probably one of our favorite places to stay in Africa, even after many years on the continent.
