Welcome to Lonno Lodge & Welcome in Watamu.
We will be happy if you decide to stay here at the Lodge Lonno. We would like to tell you that we like to see you all day in the pool or at our restaurant but, in reality, this is not the case. Watamu is a beautiful place, full of things to discover and we think it’s part of our job to help you discover this fishing village, its coast and its sea. There are so many things you can do while in Watamu, that enjoying a relaxing lie- on-the-beach holiday can be difficult! Ask us for more information.
