There's a good range of accommodation for all budgets in Watamu, Malindi and Kilifi, from glitzy beach resorts and boutique hotels to budget guesthouses. In the Lamu Archipelago, choose between beautiful, traditional Swahili houses converted into lodgings, humble village homestays for experiencing traditional life, and some wonderfully luxurious, remote beach resorts and banda (thatched-roof lodgings) camps.
