Overview of The Majlis Resort

The Majlis Resort is a luxury beach hotel in Lamu, an archipelago off Kenya’s north coast. ‘Majlis’ is an Arabic term for an exceptional place where important guests are hosted.

The resort is a heady blend of East African, Arabic and Swahili style, and is a pleasant stroll away from the beach – barefoot luxury at its finest. The design and décor of Majlis Resort is a visual feast and will transport you into a world of exotic grandeur.

The upper-floor, central bar and open-air lounge areas feature intricately carved doors and archways, and the downstairs section is an elegant space with carved light woods and bleached coral-block walls. Savour a cocktail at the beachside bar with stunning views of Ras Kitau Bay, enjoy delicious local cuisine at the restaurant, and revel in the offerings of the water sports and wellness centre.
