Enjoyed our stay in 2007 and have always planned to return - we were not disappointed. Very well looked after by Andrew and the staff. Beautiful rooms and grounds, excellent food and service. Enjoyed walking around Shela and a trip to Lamu town.

Room Tip: Enjoyed a superior room overlooking the beach

Probably the best hotel i have stayed in. Small, family run with beautiful rooms and garden/pool area. Outstanding food and excellent, friendly service. Had a wonderful trip snorkeling organised by the hotel - the guy looking after us managed to catch lobster and fish while we were swimming which he then cooked for us on one of the deserted little Islands in the area.
Looking forward to a return visit as soon as possible!
(stayed in sept 2009 but cant go back that far!)

Upon our arrival by small boat, Andrew the manager joined us on the terrace for a wonderful briefing of the hotel, its amenities and the surroundings in nearby Shella village and Lamu town. Fortified by "Old Pal" beverages a delightful alcoholic cooler, we ventured to our beautiful room for a quick refresher before venturing into the village. (The hotel's map is very basic and will not keep you from wandering aimlessly before a local latches on to you for guidance.) The beach (during low tide) provides a wonderful long walk. A morning journey on the free boat to Lamu Town is a must, but be as fortunately as we were with our guide "Chooey" who was a terrific help as we walked the narrow streets and found great shopping. Also do not miss the evening Dhou journey into the neighboring mangrove "creek." It was a great value and a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: I think the best room in the hotel is #26 which has a lovely terrace and the world's most comfortable hammock. (There's also a large window you can step through to access the pool.)

Another excellent stay at Peponi ! 10 days of being totally spoilt ! Superb food, excellent service and accommodation (we love the Superior Rooms right on the beach), . Carol and Andrew were great hosts and very ably supported by the “team” – nothing was too much trouble. Trip to see the Carmine Bee-eaters was amazing and a half-day deep sea fishing trip well worth doing. Sitting on veranda outside the bar in the evenings with a ‘Dawa’ with the buzz of the bar in the background is “special”.

I haven't actually stayed in the Hotel but know it quite well. My son had his wedding reception there, in their beautiful garden. It was an utterly perfect location. The staff bent over backwards to make it thee most memorable night. They went to great lengths to decorate the garden to make it look like paradise. The food was without a doubt the best food I have had at a wedding, and the glasses were never empty.
Aside from all of that. The rooms are lovely and all very central with sea views. The food is out of this world. It is the perfect place to unwind and just enjoy the beauty and peace of the beach and Shela village.
