The room was beautifully decorated and very quiet. Having a sun downer on the day bed over looking the Indian Ocean was a real treat. It was also great... More

The owners alternately live in one of the hotel rooms in order to make sure, that everything is perfect. We have been travelling a lot, but never met such a strong commitment. The building is in wonderful Lamu style; the rooms are spacious, perfectly clean, furnished and decorated very tastefully. Friendly staff, excellent service, delicious food - there is just... More

My wife and I just spent six glorious days with Sylvia & Aldo at their super boutique hotel. We can only agree with the other reviewers; it's a beautiful hotel with delicious and highly imaginative food, and well trained, friendly and attentive staff - it's the perfect retreat and place to unwind. The hosts pitch their hospitality perfectly, too; they... More

Lonno Lodge has just 8 rooms each one tastefully decorated and quite unique. All rooms look out over the extensively landscaped gardens to the sea,... More
