Wazi Dubu

Located on one of the world’s most private beaches, the breath-taking Wazi Dubu is the southern-most property on Kizingoni Beach, part of the Lamu Archipelago just off the Kenya Coast.

The airy, casual design of Wazi Dubu, coupled with it’s pretty coastal location on Kenya‘s island of Lamu, have made it a great favourite with groups of friends and families for many years.

Gentle ocre walls, vibrant vegetation and towering coconut palms surround the courtyard housing the refreshing swimming pool, allowing complete discretion. Over the property, three elevated living areas provide the perfect spots to dine and relax. The breakfast roof, sundowner baraza and main dining terrace with room to comfortably sat 16, all boast wide vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the 24 acres of golden beachfront and the unhurried dhows gently sailing by.

Spacious, breezy entertaining areas are adorned with traditional carved plasterwork and sturdy hardwood furniture. Brilliantly patterned kanga(a locally printed fabric)-covered cushions invite you to sink onto huge baraza seats or cool swinging beds, which once settled on, are hard to leave. Throughout the house you’ll find bars and bookshelves, dotted with fascinating indigenous artefacts.

Essential to a private villa, the charming staff are exceptionally discreet, attentive and cheerful, graciously presenting trays of thirst quenching fresh lime juice as if reading your mind or afternoon tea at just the right moment.

The splendid master suite, is dominated by a gargantuan carved mirror which cleverly reflects the facing seascape. With glorious views over the pool and courtyard below, your eye then extends to the splendid beach and the sea beyond. Five further guest rooms, four of which have en-suite bathrooms and private terraces, are adorned with romantic netting and work desk should the need arise.

When it comes to activities on Kizingoni Beach, naturally there are plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkelling and walking. In addition a variety of water sports equipment is available including: water skis, wake boards, a Lazor, Optimists, kayaks, and SUP boards. Creek fishing and deep sea fishing can be arranged, and there is even an opportunity to enjoy a low-key safari on the mainland.
