Jannat House

Paradise House

Jannat House is Arabic for Paradise House. It is an old merchant’s house bought by the Swede Hans Frejd in 1986. It was meant to be a private paradise for Hans with a guest house for his family and friends. Over time, Hans and his family became more and more engaged with the people of Lamu and their culture. His visits became more frequent, and his family and friends followed suit. Jannat House became a bustling guest house offering employment to a number of people.

Consequently, Hans decided in the year 2000 to upgrade the house to a fully fledged hotel. Today, this private piece of paradise is open to all.

Our promise to you, our guest

The upgrade of Jannat to a complete hotel did not change the vision of beeing as invited to a family home for the visitor, rather it was reinforced with a clear mission for our business: We shall offer you, our guest, a welcoming and genuine meeting-place which leaves you with memories for life.

At Jannat House there is room for quiet conversations as well as energetic conferences. Our dedicated staff combine the highest industry standards with easy-going manners, professional service with warm personal engagement. At this hotel with a difference, the guest is in the centre.
