Those that register for the training first will stay at the spectacular Beach Tower. Once Beach Tower is full, Karuna Yoga Journeys/ Yogauganda offers similar luxurious accommodation across the channel in Shela. It takes a gorgeous 7 minutes to cross the channel and birds, dolphins, and turtles are often spotted. The boat will be provided by Karuna Yoga Journeys.

Beach Tower

The Beach Tower offers peace and seclusion in elegant and uncrowded surroundings. It sits in two acres of beachfront grounds, filled with neem and acacia trees, and enjoys 75 meters of frontage onto the lovely and often deserted beach at Ras Kitau. Sophisticated and uncluttered, it is a lovely place in which to immerse yourself in your practice and study and to kick back and relax.

On the ground floor, there are six double bedrooms, two of which interconnect. All have king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms. All the bedrooms are situated together and separately from the other living areas. All the bedrooms open onto a long sea-facing veranda furnished with built-in baraza seats and safari chairs. In the front, there is a makuti-thatched garden pavilion, which will be one of the yoga shalas, and it is looking onto the beach.

Another building houses a spacious and beautifully-decorated dining room directly linked to the well-equipped kitchen. The rooftop makes a perfect stargazing deck.

La Marelle House - secondary accommodation

La Marelle House, is a colonial inspired home situated in the shade of an 800-year old baobab tree. It features a stunning courtyard with a spacious open air garden and a number of lounging areas excellent for families and romantic getaways. It is facing the village of Shela and a 3-minute walk to Beach Tower. The outside patio is the perfect place to watch the sunrise and the dhow offers the ideal spot for sunset and baobab juice. The rooms are open and breezy. La Marelle House has a tree top yoga shala, which will be used during the training.

Habibti House - secondary accommodation

Habibti House is a stunning three-storey Shela townhouse with five spacious bedrooms, all with bathrooms-en-suite. Located next to Jaha House, Habibti stands in a few footsteps distance to Shela’s remarkably colorful fishermen’s beach in a quiet residential neighborhood.

Its magnificent rooftop, where you stay under shady Makuti shelters, overviews all blooming gardens down to Lamu creek, the sailing dhows and the mangroves of Manda Island. There is always a cool breeze in the house and every floor provides many ritzy spaces as comfortable Swahili beds to daydream under the open sky.
