We spent 3 nights at Lonno and had the most lovely time. The lodge itself is beautifully decorated, the rooms are spacious and the pool is exceptionally peaceful with day beds all around the gardens and pool to relax, have a drink and read. I was most surprised by the food which was italian influenced, excellent quality and very varied... More

We have stayed in Watamu on a number of occasions and this small niche hotel has to be the best. It's just out of the centre of the village and away from the bigger hotels. 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

Thank you for defining Lonno Lodge as “a unique boutique hotel which has it all”, your review surely was a unique one! Our staff too say thank you, for appreciating their effort in keeping the lodge hotel spotlessly clean. With the breeze blowing from the sea or from the interior, according to the season, it's not an easy task but... More

Thank you deeputitchyitchyfeet you review was entirely accurate, and not only in the compliments part :-). We definetely are inside the Watamu Marine Park, and KWS (the Kenya Wildlife Service) enforces strict rules for all the properties facing or being inside any conservation area. We love that, because we think that what we get in exchange for not being on... More

The food is great, excellent care and support for daily excursions with recommended knowledgeable local guides and drivers. Also great just to relax by the pool and enjoy the view, listen to waves break. Very clean and quiet. Spacious. Full-board option was perfect. We also used bicycles to get to town, free and good fun. Great low tide walks just... 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
