Why do We Love Forodhani?
We LOVE Forodhani House because it is beautiful and fun!!! It really is a stunning house, overlooking the sea and with a great pool (with shade for little kids). It is at the centre of Shella’s incredible life and very close to nip to Peponi’s for a delicious lunch or supper. Oh and the staff are amazing!
