If you want a quiet holiday away from the crowds, this is the place to go.....lovely too for a romantic getaway. Just like they told us ..."they consider all their guests friends...'', Sylvia and Aldo ensured all... More

You have heard a good many things in previous reviews: about the amazing personal service of Aldo and Sylvia, about the incredible gourmet Italian food, about the romantic and gorgeous rooms, or about the unique location perched on top of a cliff over the Indian Ocean, and they would all be dead on. This place is the real deal and... More

Lonno Lodge is a perfect choice for a relaxing getaway. From the minute, my husband and I arrived, we felt at ease in the beautiful surroundings of this boutique but perfectly formed hotel. Pool is freshwater so instantly cooling and rooms and food are both great! And if you wish for a more energetic pastime, you can hire bikes and... More

This is one of the nicest places I have stayed in and I consider myself a prolific traveler. Besides the standard excellent services, the architectural and deco design oozes of great craftmanship- Roman and Swahili perfectly rolled into one so you do get a cultural kick out of it! I was concerned about the heat with no AC but the... More

The first impression we got was how clean and organised everything was.. The owners are genuinely warm and welcoming, and the staff are very courteous. From the large pool to the canopied swings with fantastic view, everything is so well-thought-out and relaxing. They also provided us with water shoes so we were able to go for a stroll in the...

Everything is perfect at Lonno Lodge, the rooms, the food, the people! They take care of every detail. We stayed at the tower room and if you want, you can also sleep with the stars in the roof top! What could be better?

Sleeping with the stars is an experience that everybody should try, at least once in a life. And doing it safely on the roof of you own room is even more rewarding.
