Manda bay

Manda Bay is a small Boutique Lodge, located on the North Western tip of Manda Island, one of the many unspoiled, idyllic islands of the Lamu archipelago. An exclusive resort, Manda Bay offers informal pampering and barefoot luxury. All the buildings are in keeping with the local landscape and are constructed using many local materials.
There is a central dining room featuring locally crafted Lamu furniture and antiques, a large lounge and bar area on the waterfront and close by, a games room encompassing a fresh water swimming pool overlooking the creek and moorings. There is an air conditioned boutique and an upstairs sitting area with comfortable chairs, ideal for company meetings and reading. All of the bedrooms have an enormous drape of mosquito netting, en-suite bathrooms, overhead fans and and overlook the Indian Ocean. Surrounded by miles of soft yellow sand and acres of bush land behind the lodge with wildlife, Manda Bay can offer a beach and bush experience with camp fires, star gazing, walks and lots of water sporting activities as well as peace and quiet.

The perfect retreat for families and honeymooners alike. The lodge is personally hosted and the management takes every care to cater to your needs. Manda is re-nowned for its excellent cuisine. Aside from watching the ebb & flow of the tides, Manda Bay is only a 20 min boat ride to Lamu – the oldest Swahili town of Islamic Culture dating back to the 13th Century.

All the buildings are constructed with local materials in traditional coastal style, with palm thatch roofs and woven matting covering the floors. The cottages are spacious and comfortable with their own bathrooms; they are specially sited to catch the cooling sea breezes and all have verandas. Each room has a small fridge to keep your drinks cool. Each bathroom has a shower, twin basins and toilet.

There are sixteen cottages with a choice of double or twin beds, surrounded by large flowing mosquito nets and cooled by overhead fans inside the nets. Eleven of these rooms are on the beachfront, and five are behind and above the first five beachfront rooms.

One of the best ways to explore this incredible archipelago is under sail on Utamaduni, our beautiful 62 foot sailing dhow. Utamaduni is a Kiswahili word meaning tradition or culture. We operate the boat from July through to April. Fishing and watersports are also possible from here.
