Lonno Lodge ..

probably the best lodge on the coast of Kenya

Beach life ..

Can you imagine yourself walking on the white beaches of Watamu?

Safari ..

.. is the Swahili word for “journey”. Combine your stay with a Safari at Tsavo East, the biggest Kenya Park, in a private 4×4 with a professional driver. You’ll not regret you did.

Welcome to Watamu, welcome to Lonno Lodge.

Here at Lonno Lodge we have very little to offer. Heartwarming sun, an ever changing light, astonishing silence, refreshing breeze, breathtaking views, stunning food .. and privacy. Really .. a lot of privacy. You can even rent the whole lodge for yourself, and for your guests too, if you wish so.

Do not take our word for granted ..

.. make a search for “Lonno Lodge Reviews” on your preferred search engine:

“Exceptional”

“All round amazing, beautiful hotel, gorgeous seafront setting, the most wonderful hosts who will go to any lengths to enhance your enjoyment. Strongly recommend. We are a family with three small kids, we travel a lot and can truly say Lonno Lodge was outstanding.” — Nana, UAE
from Booking.com

“Lonno Luxury”

“We wanted to make the most out of the second half of our Kenya vacation. The first week only traveling and game watching, the other half only relaxing. We chose Lonno Lodge for the relaxing-part, and didn’t regret a second! ” — Utepaatur
from Holiday Watchdog

“Very high standards”

“We stayed at Lonno Lodge at the end of August for 2 nights. From the moment we arrived at the lodge, our hosts Silvia and Aldo made us feel at home. We immediately fell in love with our room which was tastefully decorated and had breathtaking views.” — Simult, Spain

A room with a view

The Tower Rooms

From the cozy 42 sqm Executive Room, to the huge 72 sqm Top Tower Room, you’ll never ever miss the ocean view and the sea breeze: they’re just in front of you.

The Historical Suites

One or two bedrooms, up to 133 sqm, independent and with all the room you need to feel at home. A small indulgence for a well deserved holiday.

Dine by the stars

The finest cuisine

With style, charme, flavours and the scents of Africa. A perfect mix of the best local natural ingredients with european cooking and traditional african dishes.

Cocktail, anybody?

Conveniently located beside the restaurant and the swimming pool, the bar is always available for a drink or a snack. Did you ever had a Dawa?
