Manda Bay is on one of the many unspoilt, idyllic islands within the Lamu archipelago, situated on the northwestern tip of Manda Island. The lodge lies in the calm inshore waters on a long sandy protected beach. Surrounded by miles of palm fringed silky sandy beaches and intriguing creeks, Manda Bay is the perfect getaway retreat.

There are 22 cottages (11 beach front, 5 sea view and 6 garden view) flawlessly-designed and in keeping with local landscape. Each cottage has a large ceiling fan and refreshing showers inside the en-suite bathrooms. They also have their own verandahs.

The cuisine at Manda Bay naturally features a marine flavour, freshly-caught tuna, mangrove crab and prawns are a Manda Bay delicacy! There is a large dining room but on most nights dinners are taken outside under the stars.

Manda Bay offers guests a chance to relax and unwind from the pressures of the real world, but for the more adventurous the variety of activities is abundant. Guests can choose from deep sea fishing, windsurfing, laser sailing, mangrove trips, cultural visits, kayaking, water skiing and scuba diving to name a few. With regular sightings of dolphins, turtles and the occasional Humpback whale the marine life excels. Guests can enjoy safe snorkelling in the warm, gentle and clear waters. Spa treatments and massages are also offered, and there is a gorgeous swimming pool. Game drives and scenic flights are also offered and the lodge has its own airstrip. There is a network of tracks and roads through the acacia woodland and sightings have included bushbuck, buffalo, mongoose, porcupine and dik dik. Bushbabies and genets are often seen around the lodge at night.
