My parents, my 90 year old grandmother and I travelled to Lonno Lodge the past week to celebrate her 90th birthday. We couldn't have asked to stay anywhere else better than Lonno Lodge for the occasion! The serenity of the property, the beautiful views and the nature and the friendliest guard dogs along with Aldo and Silvia's upmost hospitality made... More

We have visited Lonno Lodge in March 2015 and we were really suprised. The hotel was very quiet. The cuisine was wonderful, very delicious. They also set a special dishes for me and my family /vegetarian/. Owners were very friendly and pleasant. Also staff was professional and nice. We really enjoyed holidays here. I really recommend this hotel:)

My friend and I stayed at Lonno in January. We had a very peaceful and relaxing three days. We were very well looked after and I would thoroughly recommend staying there. 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

Thank you for your review, Kate F, and for appreciating Lonno Lodge. Biking freely is surely an advantage, particulary for the brave ones not caring fot the sun :-). But between the Lodge and the centre of Watamu the road is comlpetely flat, and at bike speed it's a real pleasure to enjoy the view, the places and the smiling... 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
