ALFAJIRI RATES: Alfajiri Rates

Considered by many as the finest resort on the East African Coast, consist of 3 private villas. Alfajiri Villas overlook the Indian Ocean and their elevated positions ensure privacy and stunning views. Alfajiri's villas are built in a style befitting of their location, with high Makuti roofs, ivory Danish floors, wooden beams, Lamu doors and impressive African and Far Eastern Artifacts. Most of the furniture is made on the property in the villa’s workshop. The gardens are meticulously maintained and include many palms from the villa’s nursery. Large verandas, with huge hand carved sofas and cushions, dominate the front of the villas, where a stretch swimming pool sits on the edge of a small cliff merging into the sea and the horizon.

Alfajiri won the 2002 Harpers and Queen award for the private villa providing the best service worldwide. The Alfajiri Villas are open year-round.
