Funky, swahili based architecture, lots of stairs, friendly and helpful staff. A relatively comfortable oasis between the mosques of this neighbourhood. Great space to hangout and chill cooling winds off the water from the terrace. A bit of a walk from the jetty through the...More
Me and my friend arrived by boat on Lamu island in the evening. We haven't had booked anything so the locals offered us to show us around and suggested some guesthouses. One of them was Jannat House. As soon as we entered the guesthouse we...More
This is a decent budget guesthouse in Lamu with very Lamu-esque architecture. Very nice staff and a nice breakfast with Spanish omelette.
There are too many flies on the ground floor which makes it annoying at breakfast. They need to get a fly trap or...More
Great staff, very affordable. Nothing fancy, rather an authentic experience in a Swahili Guest House. The swimming pool was popular with guests, although I did not use it personally. Nice breakfasts, and overall a very charming place.

Hi, thanks for your question. Air conditioning is natural at Lamu. The always present soft breeze is cleverly catched by the classic architecture and reaches all interior through glass-less windows with shutters. Additional roof-fans distributes it. Also day temperatures are stable around 30 and night temperatures 26-27. Thus no need for unhealthy air-condition. Hope to see you soon as a guest at our paradise.
