A haven of elegance, culture, and sustainability on Manda Island.

Originally built as a private retreat, this exquisite oasis seamlessly blends luxury and sustainability, providing guests with a unique opportunity to unwind in an environment that celebrates both nature and culture.

Featuring beautifully designed villas constructed from local coral blocks, handcrafted furniture, luscious rugs, and an eclectic collection of art, a stay at The Majlis will be one to remember. Relax on the rooftop bar, savor a meal in the open-air restaurant, and enjoy moments on this remote and beautiful island where time feels as though it stands still.

Sustainability at the Core:
From the moment you step on the sun-drenched shores, you’re enveloped in an atmosphere of purposeful elegance, where every moment is infused with a commitment to community and environmental stewardship. With a bold vision to reduce its carbon footprint, the resort invests in renewable energy sources and energy-efficient technologies. Through eco-friendly initiatives such as water recycling and sourcing local materials, The Majlis not only minimizes its environmental impact but fosters a deep connection to the land and its people.

With mentorship programs and skill-building initiatives, The Majlis empowers its more than 145 Kenyan staff members to become agents of change within their own communities, fostering a ripple effect of positive transformation that extends far beyond the resort’s shores.
