    My partner and I came here twice, to eat, during our holiday in June 2015. Staying at a nearby, self-catered, residence we decided to go with the trip-advisor-flow and go for dinner at what is rated Lamu's number one culinary experience: we were not disappointed. Our small appetites were easily placated by the fantastic crab, calamari and hummus - dishes... More

    Enjoyed an evening with colleagues at this hotel. We relaxed in the balcony overlooking the Indian Ocean as we enjoyed fantastic fresh samosas with great wine. My colleagues enjoyed nice masala tea. I recommend this hotel.

    I never thought you could have a romantic and family holiday in one but Peponi's team made it all possible... Despite the travel advise we booked our 2 week to stay a Peponi. It was simply the perfect holiday from start to finish - we were welcomed with open arms by the team on arrival answering all our questions and... More

    Went in Februari for 5 days to Peponi hotel with my husband. We got an upgrade to room nr.17 / 71. We loved it!! We felt very welcome and looked after by Carol and Andrew. The room was beautifull with a huge private deck with chairs, hammock and sunbed with a few straight over the Indian Ocean and Manda Island.... More

    Peponi Hotel is a beautiful family run hotel, situated in Shela on Lamu Island. I had a wonderful time and can recommend this hotel as the ultimate getaway from a busy urban lifestyle to come and relax and experience the unique culture and life style that Lamu island has to offer. The cuisine at Peponi is outstanding and I had... More

    Yet again Peponi hotel shows how stunning the Kenyan welcome is, despite all negative press received in UK. The staff are amazingly kind and friendly - helping with our Swahili pronunciation and teaching new word of the day ..... Tikitimaji is my new favourite and so much nicer than water melon! Asante Sana to all

    All is stunning here, the location, the food, the people, the atmosphere... magic really !!! There's not many places like this on earth... ask for one room in the garden area or the new ones just near the pool... and don't miss the feta camembert samosas, could sound bizarre but it's soooo good ;-)

    I have just come back from the most spoiling few days at Peponis. It is a family run hotel ...Carol and Andrew have created a lovely intimate and relaxed atmosphere.

    Flying to Lamu (1 hour direct from Nairobi) is the easiest way to enjoy the Kenya coast and, despite current troubles in other parts of Kenya, the island is a peaceful haven as Kenya locals know. We have been to Peponi several times and the accommodation, food and service are as good as ever. The hotel is family run and... More

    I made the trip out to Lamu at then end of a Kenyan safari and it was a great way to end my trip to Kenya. What a great spot. The hotel is in a great spot right on an inlet to the harbor on the water. We used the Hobie cat a couple of days out on the water... More
