The Villa


Located on the fantastic Manda Island’s beach, a few meters from the sea, and surrounded by luxurious tropical vegetation, the villa

Blue Empire

enjoys a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean, the island of Lamu and the charming Shela village.
Built with precious African woods and tastefully designed in a refined exotic style, it is characterized by the traditional roof in makuti with braided palm leaves and by wide verandas on the sea from which one can enjoy unforgettable sunsets.

In Blue Empire 6 guests can be accommodated in 3 double bedrooms. 
All the ample bedrooms have king size beds with mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms, each painted in a different colour and with a small indoor garden.

The villa’s experienced and discreet staff is at your complete disposal and ready to fulfill each of your needs. The cooks will prepare delicate Italian, international and Swahili dishes. Breads and sweets are homemade; vegetables and tropical fruits are bought daily from Lamu’s colourful market, and fresh seafood from the local fishermen on the beach. Menus can be adapted to suit our guests’ tastes.

The villa has also a dhow, local wooden boat, with a captain, who will welcome you at the airport and will stay at your complete disposal for the duration of your stay, leading you to the discovery of idyllic places. We also have a beautiful, Mozambique-styled dhow, which guests can hire for unforgettable trips.

Thanks to its invaluable position on the beach, with stunning, romantic view on the Indian Ocean, Blue Empire is the ideal location for wedding parties, honeymoons, and other events.
