Whether in the main building, the ocean suite or the villas, each room has a private veranda, TV/DVD, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Three double rooms with ensuite bathroom are found on the first floor of the beach house; room #1 boasts the best view of the three, followed by #2, while #3 has a partial sea view. The crisp and clean look can be put down to the white stone walls, creamy-coloured drapes and white linen on the bed which is nestled in a matching, white stone base. The bejewelled cushions add a touch of modern bling, while the shell-trimmed mirrors keep the look fairly natural. Each room boasts a large terrace with lounge corner and alfresco dining area. As seen elsewhere in the beach house, the heavy Lamu doors with brass fittings are gorgeous, coated with a thin layer of white paint to give it a rustic, almost vintage feel. Each ensuite bathroom in the main house boasts a large stone tub and separate shower with wooden slat base.
Our favourite room was the ocean suite luxury tent; entered via a Lamu door, it is spacious and private. The queen-sized bed on a carved wooden frame is laid with crisp, white linen and gold cushions that shimmer under the light. The room has been carefully decorated with sea shells, arabesque lanterns and intricate sculpted Lamu furnishings including an ornate wooden chest placed at the foot of the bed. The tent opens on to a large terrace with day beds. The wooden deck floors and the use of natural materials and warm colours further add to the suite's casual luxe feel.
Two of the three thatched-roof villas boast their own BBQ, Jacuzzi and infinity swimming pool with ocean views. Each has two bedrooms decorated in traditional Swahili style plus its own chef and waiter.
