Manda Bay

Located on the north western tip of Manda Island in the Lamu archipelago, Manda Bay is the epitome of barefoot luxury. Family owned and hosted, Manda Bay is a chic but simple boutique hotel in an exquisite location.

The cottages are constructed using local materials with thatched roofs, ceiling fans and woven matted floors on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Walk for miles on the unspoilt white sandy beach; go snorkeling on the edge of the coral reef; go water-skiing in the creek or kite-surfing in the ocean; visit the Takwa ruins; enjoy a peaceful bird watching cruise through the mangroves; and finish the day with a delicious seafood dinner under the stars.
