Lamu Palace is situated on the sea front overlooking Lamu Harbour. Slightly more modern than most of the other Lamu guest houses and hotels, this is a well established hotel with self-contained rooms and hot water. Although some rooms are quite small, it is the only hotel in Lamu with air-conditioned rooms. Its Arabic-style façade stands out on the row of buildings on the Lamu waterfront. The downstairs restaurant overlooks the street, alcohol is served here. There is a supplement charged for sea-view rooms. The hotel’s private boat ferries its guests daily to Manda beach where there is a beach bar and day beds available. Guided tours of the town are provided by the hotel free of charge.
