Ceylon House

The former name of this pearl shaped island and now a variety of tea that we hold in the highest of regards Ceylon House is a stunning example of contemporary design meets ancient artistry. The architecture of Ceylon House is based on the award-winning design of Shela House on Lamu Island. 

Arriving at the house via the wide sand coloured steps– you first see the welcoming edgeless pool, positioned between two elegant pillars framing the sea view beyond. A generous veranda offers an expandable seating area, which leads off the internal ground floor baraza area. Flanking the pool is a massage room on one side and a spacious shower/pool changing room on the other. 

An internal staircase leads up to a large living room and dining verandah overlooking the pool as well as two ensuite double-bed guest rooms. Further on up to the second floor where a beautifully proportioned, cool and gracious master bedroom leads off a private terrace, with incredible vistas of the sea and palm trees. A further double twin bedroom (both ensuite) furnished with traditional style beds for that authentic Swahili feel. 

An additional staircase that runs from the master suite up to the fourth floor leads you up to arguably the best view on the cape. An airy and stylish rooftop terrace provides the ideal spot to dine during day or night time hours and gives you a breathtaking panoramic view of the tropical surroundings. 

Also within the household is a fully equipped kitchen, staff quarters and a stunning garden dining pavilion.
