Kijani Hotel is located on Lamu Island just off the coast of Kenya, it offers guests one of the most luxurious stays available in an area rife with beauty, high-end resorts, and unique experiences. An incredible seafront location, beautiful tropical gardens, and enough personality to catch the attention of even the most seasoned traveler add up to make the Kijani Hotel a delight for any visitor.
Few hotels embody the rich history of the Lamu Islands so fully as the Kijani, built by Swiss owner Pierre Oberson to revive that past with as much authenticity as possible. Built in the tradition of Swahili stone houses, the Kijani is unique in that it was constructed from the remains of three old houses, using only traditional materials and techniques. Antiques and handmade replicas complete the environment, outfitting every room, hallway, and public area with the aesthetic of Lamu’s past. This endeavor took Oberson over a decade of hard work, but the final result is something truly amazing.
Many travelers will find the juxtaposition of privacy, quiet, and the past with the exotic fun and bustle of the Lamu waterfront truly enticing. You can enjoy the noise and excitement as long as you like, then retreat into a truly peaceful space a world apart, with no need for a long trip between the two. If you want to experience both sides of Lamu, past and present, peace and energy, the Kijani is an excellent choice.Ready to book your holiday at Kijani Hotel ? Contact us for the best rates.

Guests with an eye for local cuisine will appreciate the offerings of the Kijani Hotel, especially the breakfast made daily: a selection of exotic local fruits, homemade marmalade and yogurts, and other locally produced foods, such as bread, honey, and eggs. Much of the food served at the breakfast is either cooked on site, or produced at a small farm owned by the Kijani on the island. Guests can also choose to receive their dinner from the Kijani, ordering a la carte from pasta, grilled fish, and any number of other traditional and foreign dishes. The dining experience is rounded out with an excellent wine cellar equipped with high-quality Italian wines.
