Lamu Island, Kenya

It’s hard to believe looking at it today, but The Majlis was never meant to be a resort. A private African home-away-from-home; it was built as a family retreat from the pressures of the world – a place to spend precious time with friends. The story begins in 2000, when an Italian gentleman known as ‘Nanni’ and his wife Elena were on a global quest to find the perfect place to escape from the cold European winters. Having travelled extensively, they realised that Africa held a special place in their hearts. They had journeyed its length and breadth, exploring its remote wildernesses and delighting in the diversity of its people. For many years they had owned a textile factory in Ethiopia, so now, in the twilight years of their lives, they wondered if Kenya may offer the haven they sought. Landing in Lamu, they watched the white-sailed dhows glide up the blue water of the Manda Channel; the patient trains of donkeys ferrying sand in baskets on their backs; the black-cloaked figures of the Swahili ladies; and the jade green domes of the island’s many mosques. They realised that on this remote and beautiful island, time had almost stood still. They had found the "home" they were looking for. Designed to offer an African "home-from-home" for all who visit, The Majlis was built with love and finished in beauty. Not intended as a hotel, it still isn’t one, it’s simply a very special place in which our honoured guests can feel absolutely at home.
