Fatuma's Tower
also known as Gillis Yoga Tower, is located in the village of Shela on the island of Lamu on the northern end of the of Kenya Coast.

Hosted by husband and wife team, Gillis and Fiammetta, this place has the kind of serene atmosphere you might expect of a yoga retreat. Guests are not obliged to join in the yoga activities, but do need to be sympathetic to those around.

The eight rooms can be rented individually and excellent Italian Swahili meals are eaten communally.

This is a remarkably cool, peaceful and fascinating place, which attracts an interesting mix of folks and offers really good value for money.
