I ate there nearly daily. Lovely staff and owner who is friendly and happy to prepare any dish you want. We felt so welcome there and the location is the best. Sit on the terrace and watch the boats or dive in for a swim.
- Breakfast included
It’s a shame this place doesn’t appear on tripadvisor as a restaurant as well as a Guest House! We passed by for dinner after walking to and from Lamu Old Town - very hungry! It was delicious! The coconut rice and catch of the day curry was melt in your mouth! And the Jumbo prawn linguine was perfect! Definitely pass by for lunch or dinner!
A friend and I spent 4 days at Bahari and had a great relaxing stay. The food was good and reasonable. Breakfast was included. Bed and Lounge were comfortable in the penthouse. Bathroom was good. Location in Shela was convenient and practically on the water.The owner organized a fabulous dhow trip to Manda toto area. Great trip altogether.
We spent two nights at the top suite at Bahari and it was amazing.
There is no AC, so if you are visiting in the summer, be aware :)
If you get the top suite, you have the option of using the out doors day bed where you get to see the sun rise and feel the breeze.
There is no pool, but the amazing Shella beach is only two minutes away.
The host can hook you up with a dhow sundowner trip.
The restaurant at Bahari is decent. If you are looking for a luxury meal (and are willing to pay the price) go to peponi hotel, 3 min from Bahari).
I can def. recommend staying at Bahari if you are traveling on a budget.
Great place to stay. View is amazing. Imagine waking up in the morning to the blue waterside. The place has some nice lounge areas and a restaurant overlooking on the water. Staff is helpful and friendly. Owner is very easy to access. Rooms are clean, have big beds with enough room and a private bathroom.
I was really I could stay at Bahari. I would recommend it to everyone.
Shella Bahari is owned by a sweet couple who take care of everything you might need with rooms that are private.The guest house is on the ocean front with a balcony facing the ocean thus offering panoramic views of the activities and the landscape.The food from their restaurant is delicious and one can get a taste of the local cuisine.If yo are a budget traveller this should be top on your list.
