We stayed at Lonno Lodge one week. It was really a quiet lodge with a beautiful sea view. Perfect to relax! The room was really pretty and big and the swimming pool had a lot of space.The landlords and employees were lovely. They took care of us really well! For people who care of the nature, Lonno Lodge makes an... More

Lonno is a jewel owned by a couple of Italians. It is very exclusive with only 8 suites in a large estate. The Husband, Aldo, is an Italian architect. He dedicated 3 years thinking and implementing each detail of the Lodge. We were there with my wife who is an architect and she can confirm that the level of details... More

We stayed at Lonno Lodge at the end of August for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived at the lodge, our hosts Silvia and Aldo made us feel at home. We immediately fell in love with our room which was tastefully decorated and had breathtaking views. In fact, the whole lodge has been decorated with great attention to detail,... More

We returned to Lonna Lodge late last year and needless to say it was wonderful as always. Everything from the food, service, lodging and location is as good as it gets. Safety is recently spoken of in Kenya, however do not let any such chatter deter you from a visit to Lonno Lodge. The area of Malindi is very safe,... More

First of all. Silvia and Aldo are like your parents. They take care of you and their beautiful lodge. Aldo takes you out for a walk if you ask him to, he takes lovely pictures and sends them by email. They book and recommend restaurants in the neighborhood. They eat next to you and enjoy exactly the same food and... More

we planned our quite retreat for 3 months. We had been to so many other resorts in Malindi before but we finally settled for Lonno. First, the booking process is personalized. Aldo will make you feel at ease and indeed make you feel worth your every penny. We finally arrived in Lonno and were welcomed by Silvia and Aldo and... More

If by a Lodge you mean charming homes nestled in nature, then that is Lonno Lodge: it has only 4 rooms and 4 suites that directly face Watamu's marine park. The term Lodge might be deterrent because it recalls the image of accommodations without services, while there is an array of exclusive services available to you at Lonno Lodge, such... More

I've stayed at beach resorts in Bali, Key West, Australia and Thailand and yet none has been as beautiful as my experience at Lonno. Aldo and Silvia are an amazing couple and hosted us for a short 2 day stay. The drive from Mombasa was about 4 hours and cost 7000 shilling. The drivers at the airport will charge 12000... More

After a tiring week of safaris in the Kenyan parks we felt for a few days to relax and enjoy the beautiful Indian Ocean and its marine underwater treasures. Arriving at Lonno lodge in the evening we were welcomed by Aldo and Sylvia and their 5 dogs. The place is decorated with a lot of taste (Aldo was an architect)... More
