About this hotel

Immerse yourself in Lamu’s rich Swahili culture with a stay at Makubwa House. Nestled in a serene corner just moments from the seafront and a short stroll from the Old Fort, our residence offers an inviting haven in this enchanting island locale.

Dating back to the 1850s, Makubwa House was originally constructed for a prominent Patrician family. Reflecting traditional architecture, the house once accommodated multiple generations across its various floors. Following meticulous restoration, the home retains its authentic charm, preserving original features like the courtyard, intricately carved doors, mangrove beams, and thatched roofs, all embodying the fusion of Arab, Persian, and Indian influences inherent in Swahili architecture.

Spread across three levels, Makubwa House offers a blend of comfort and authenticity. The ground floor welcomes you with a traditional entrance and a serene courtyard featuring a private plunge pool. Ascend to the second level to discover the air-conditioned master bedroom, a gallery with three additional beds, a cozy dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen at your disposal. The top floor invites you to soak in panoramic views of the town and ocean, bask in the sunlight, and unwind under the thatched roof, complemented by a bed for siestas or extra guests. With dedicated staff on hand, including Julius for personalized assistance and Babu Ali overseeing housekeeping, guests can indulge in a worry-free stay. Amenities such as mosquito nets, towels, and Wi-Fi ensure a comfortable experience, while optional services like laundry, meals, and activity arrangements add convenience and flexibility to your visit.
