KazKazi House is the exciting new edition to the prestigious Kizingoni Beach Collection on the Kenyan Island of Lamu. The house consists of four towers, is designed around an elevated 16m infinity pool and sits back from the beach on 1.85 acres of landscaped gardens. It is aptly named after the northerly monsoon wind, which for thousands of years carried the dhows to Lamu from Asia, laden with treasure. The design of the house gives guests the king of the castle feel with the two front towers accommodating four extraordinary bedrooms, each with private terrace and private bathroom. The back two towers house the communal areas, kitchen and the sumptuous master bedroom with star gazing bathtub and rustic outside shower. Shady makuti-covered terraces run between the four areas, providing privacy for the pool area while allowing the breeze to blow through and gently sway the hanging day beds. Entertaining is well catered for at KazKazi, with a welcoming bar and baraza area by the entrance, a large lower dining area, a rooftop dining/recreation area and plenty of room around the pool for dining under the stars.
A key focus at Kizingoni Beach is the cuisine. Your own personal chef discusses personal preferences ensuring they are always indulged and uses fresh local ingredients to create imaginative menus. The vegetables, herbs and fruits are all home grown on site and an array of fresh daily caught fish are all skillfully blended to make delicious local and international flavours.
Activities at Kizingoni Beach focus mainly around the alluring Indian Ocean. Each of the houses private boat captains are on hand to show guests some of the best snorkeling and one of the top 10 deep sea fishing spots in the world. The conditions are perfect for all water sports, including waterskiing, tubing, wakeboarding and kitesurfing. There is also a rare opportunity to swim with dolphins and enjoy a dhow cruise around the bay, watching the East African sunset with cold drinks and fresh oysters.
