Samawati means ‘a heavenly place’ in the native Digo language. This is an Arabesque Swahili house on a pristine 3km stretch of Kenya’s Indian Ocean seaboard. The house is surrounded by indigenous trees, a paradise for birds and the local troupes of cheeky sykes monkeys. The house has beaches, safe swimming, and good snorkeling on the outer reefs, steady trade winds for kite and wind surfing.
Samawati House Accommodation
There are four spacious bedrooms, indoor and outdoor sitting rooms, ping pong tables, dining rooms and a kitchen around a courtyard with outside patios and a large infinity edge 12m swimming pool, set up on a cliff above the beach. At the pool one can enjoy sweeping views of the Indian Ocean through a group of coconut trees. All the bedrooms are upstairs facing the sea.
