Fig House is the epitome of luxurious living on the Indian Ocean.
It is situated on a low coral cliff, at the confluence of Takaungu creek and the Indian ocean.
Low tide reveals acres of sand, studded with tide pools - each an aquarium in miniature. As the tide turns, the creek is transformed into turquoise shallows, on which fishing dhows sail home.
The house speaks of warm casual elegance - soft curves and muted tones. It is spacious and hand crafted from coral and dhow-wood - suited to idle days and moon-lit nights.
