Kizingo Hotel

I went to Kizingo Hotel in Lamu on the recommendation of a friend. I have a wonderful experience--left to be on my own when I wanted, and invited to join the flock when I wanted. I was seated at dinner with others which was great (who wants to eat alone all the time) and did a few of the excursions they offer.

But I loved sitting on the bed swing/hammock on my front porch enjoying the view and my book. It's absolutely beautiful and if you're looking for a quiet beach getaway, this is the place to go!!

I cannot praise Kizingo Hotel in Lamu highly enough.

A truly relaxing and chilled environment in which you can kick off your shoes and forget the world.

Our banda was roomy and comfortable and very private with plenty of solar heated hot water for the wonderful shower, an amazing water saving loo and a huge comfortable bed.

It was just divine to be woken up with a flask of tea/coffee in the morning and then to amble over to the lodge for breakfast.

We also loved the tea and cake served at your banda at 4.00 pm.

Mary Jo, Louis, Dion and all of the staff (particularly Alex) are all so welcoming and friendly. They all made our stay truly memorable.

The food was superb - fresh fish or shellfish twice a day, delicious salads and scrumptious puddings - all served with smile! My food highlight was the crab with ginger - wonderful!

I'm sad to read the negative press about Lamu. We never felt that our security was compromised at any time during our stay at Kizingo. I have travelled to some pretty dangerous places in the world over the past few years -

Despite the apparent risk from Somali raiders, Lamu would rank in the bottom 1%. Kizingo is well away from the deepwater channel between Lamu town and Manda and consequently seems very safe (to me, at least)
