We won a world travel award!

We were overjoyed to hear that in the last part of 2018 our lodge was recognised as a leader in its field and was awarded a World Travel Award for ‘Africa’s Leading Private Island Resort’. To have been recognised by an international body such as this left us feeling proud of all our hard work over the last couple of years.

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality industries. Today, the World Travel Awards™ brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of industry excellence.

Thank you to everyone who voted!

Manda beach voted best in world!

Another day, another award! Manda beach has been voted the best beach in the world in the ‘wow’ category, after fending off over 3,500 other beaches from across all continents.

The judges, who were known as ‘The Beach Inspectors’, were a couple from Germany who had the impossible task ('poor them!’) of visiting beaches worldwide and rating their qualities in order to find the best beaches for their loyal fanbase.

The Beach Inspectors are the world’s first comprehensive information platform for beaches and offers you a unique search for travel and hotel offers in combination with beach characteristics.

Of Manda beach they said ‘Manda Bay is perfect for snorkelling and if you are lucky you might even spot whale sharks. Nearby is the old town of Lamu which is effectively an outdoor museum for those wanting to know more about the commercial history of the eastern African coast.’
