Banana House staff is amazing as many guests write in the visitors book: friendly, helpful, aware, always smiling. We value our staff very high and help them with a Banana House Bursary Fund to have the children of the staff been educated.

Our manager Patricia is very efficient and loves to work at Banana House, coming from a big resort, she prefers the personal attention at Banana House.

Saadi, the activity manager, is always around organising for you any trip you like, weather it is for 2 people a dhow trip, or a film crew carrying equipment, or for a wedding organising a dhow race, Saadi knows it all.

Salim, our boat captain, will welcome you at the airport with his big smile and brings you smoothly to the otherside of the canal to Shela on Lamu Island where our staff will carry your luggage to Banana House.
