Combining the stylish elegance of colonial times and the impressive history of Swahili culture, The Red Pepper House is a study in contrasts and a triumph of harmony.

Nestled between a pristine beach and an unspoiled forest, the makuti thatched roof of The Red Pepper House rises and falls with the breeze, resting peacefully in its remote location on Kenya’s Lamu Island.

This is a place where the Swahili culture is showcased, colonial comforts are elegantly arrayed, and a remote location continues to preserve the magic of this sublime destination. There are just five Nyumbas (houses) here, each with a perfect view of the ocean and an aura that echoes the thousand-year-old Swahili culture.

Lounge by the edge of the Indian Ocean, take your time with every detail of your day, or seek adventure and allow your Butler to accompany you beyond The Red Pepper House.

The island of Lamu has been declared a World Heritage site. It is already hundreds of years old, yet thanks to its remote location, it has been immaculately preserved. Here’s to hundreds more years to come.
