The Lamu Archipelago is a small cluster of islands situated on Kenya's northern coastline. The largest of the islands include Lamu, Manda, Pate and Kiwayu, each offering a peaceful retreat with endless beaches and crystal clear waters. Lamu Island is known for having the oldest living Swahili town, with many of the narrow streets remaining unchanged. Very few vehicles are on the island and donkeys and dhows remain the prime forms of transport.
Manda Bay is situated beside miles of soft sand beach, with fascinating creeks and small islets to explore. This resort is located on an unspoilt, idyllic island found in the
romantic Lamu archipelago.
We have devised a ratings system based on our opinions and those of our customers, rather than local
or international ratings.
Somak's 'Sun' ratings give an overall view of a property and take account of factors such as accommodation,
food, facilities and service.
As standards of accommodation vary from country to country, Somak's 'Sun' ratings reflect the standards
to be expected within one particular country or region. It is generally not appropriate to compare ratings
from one country to another.
