Shela House

Listed under Best Hotels in Coast-Tsavo, Kenya.

Pin It

These four luxury villas, ranging in size from accommodating 8 to 12 people, are all set in the winding passages of Shela and its surrounds. They have all been designed in a traditional Arabic style with a central courtyard and rooftop lounging area with the rooms coming off the bougainvillea covered walkways. With views out across the roof tops and the bay beyond these are all cool and peaceful surrounds in which to enjoy the island.

Each of these villas is well decorated and perfectly suits a couple of families who want the privacy of their own house. Of the 4, the Beach House is the only one that has direct beach access and a pool and, as such, they are really recommended as more of a town stay. Each house has its own staff and professional chef so everything is taken care of throughout your stay. It is also recommended to bring your own alcohol as the island is practically (with the exception of Peponi) dry.
