On the south-western tip of Lamu Island this ultra secluded beach hideaway is a “5-star Robinson Crusoe” experience, with a totally laid-back feel and some of “the most glamorous beach huts in Africa”.

There are 16 totally natural chalets, each with a spacious and stylish design, which belies their rustic simplicity.

The lounge and bar at Kipungani face the 10-mile long deserted beach, perfect for glorious sunsets, and are furnished for total relaxation.

The dining room serves delectable catch of the day seafood and continental cuisine, and is set in a tropical garden with an adjoining well stocked library, while a horizon-touching saltwater pool offers the perfect venue for romantic sundowners.
