Welcome to The Charming Lonno Lodge Watamu

Here at The Charming Lonno Lodge Watamu 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.

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?

A room with a view

The Tower Rooms

From the cozy 42 sqm Deluxe 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.
