You only live once and so you need to choose what in life is your priority?
We know that a return to Lonno Lodge is a must; Silvia, Aldo, and ALL the staff are customer focused to the highest level and attention to detail
The passion and detail Aldo has put into the lodge is unparalleled and a total complement to the surrounding area and Swahili architecture
Again we were lucky enough to have the top tower room and the aura and and atmosphere you benefit from is breathtaking
So need we say more other than Thank you ‘The Charming Lonno Lodge for our time again with you and even more friends to know around our small Big World

The Owners, Silva and Aldo, are by far, two of the most gracious hosts i have meet on the 9 years of my "Bucket List" travels. They taught their chief how to cook incredible food, taste 3 course meals, good wine list, full bar. The total staff, and i mean every person on the property, always had a smile, they are gracious, helpful and always there if you need them, and not like a lot of places that push their services on you just when you want relax.
The property has a great pool, excise to a beach at low tide, that offers you hours of walking. Lastly,The Lonno Loge is just far away from the town for total quietness, but close enough to town if you need to explore or shop.
I will return , next time with my family. Thanks again Silvia and Aldo

Room tip: Room #2 in the tower, balcony, great view of Indian ocean and landscape

My wife & I stayed at the Lonno Lodge based on a friends recommendation & it did not disappoint.

The Italian owners, Sylvia & Aldo can’t do enough for you. The food was excellent, the view amazing and the pool refreshing. They also make a great revitalising G&T.

The rooms are fantastic & everything you need is provided. Whether you’re in the tower or the rooms below, a nice view of the sea & greenery is there for all.

At low tide you can walk to some nearby islands or explore the coral next to the hotel and see hundreds of crabs and fish - we even saw small sea snakes and an eel.

We will definitely be back.

I had a great time at Lonno Lodge for a quick weekend getaway. Lonno is located on the outskirts of Watamu making it ideal for a quiet, relaxing stay. The service is friendly, professional, and genuine. The grounds and hotel itself are clean and beautiful. The authentic Italian cuisine inspired by the coastal surroundings is fresh and every meal is delicious. Plus, the bartender makes great cocktails.

Aldo and Silvia are hands on and kind to assist wherever necessary. It was a pleasure to meet and get to know them.

Highly recommend doing the 2 hour walk at low tide to Watamu town via the water/reef. Get to see some fish, birds and marine life.

Would highly recommend staying here for a luxurious and comfortable stay. Only wish I could’ve stayed longer!
