My wife and I were the only ones to have supper on the rooftop the other night, and although the food took forever to be ready, we thoroughly enjoyed the neighbourhood's sights and sounds from our loftly perch.

We spent 4 nights at Msafini in July this year and it was a wonderful experience. I would have loved to stay many more nights. Friendsly and helpful staff, no hassle, good food, flexible cook and waiters, - not to mention the fantastic view. You could spend the whole day just admiring the beauty of the place! When I go back to Lamu island, I will definitely make sure I stay in Shela town and at Msafini Hotel!

Spent 4 nights here having spent nights in other hotels in shela and lamu, and it is BY FAR the best place you can stay. Wondeful room on top floor with big terrace, swinging bed, lounge chairs, great room, beautiful bed, great bathroom with hot water.
Restaurant equally great and very attentive cook.
Guys who work here are so so so so so friendly and nice they literally made our stay.
A little overpriced, but negotiable prices if you get friendly :)
