I was looking for a place that was not as commercialized as our coast is and also where I was not going to meet many people. Lonno is ideal; with personalized service from the husband and wife team or owners. The food was fresh and made only for the few of us who were there. (it takes only 24 people)....

My son, my two daughters and I had the most wonderful time during our stay at Lonno. The hosts Silvia and Aldo are wonderful human beings. We felt so at home. The workers, the food, and the lodge itself were fabulous. I am certain to do it once again and want my friends to taste this great experience. Thank you,...

The décor, combining local materials and artistic designs both in the common areas and rooms, created a delightful ambience....

We loved our safari experiences but absolutely loved wrapping up our visit to Kenya with a 7-night stay at Lonno Lodge. The hosts, Silvia and Aldo, were incredibly attentive to us and provided a really thoughtful experience, from the detail of the meals, the amazing rooms, the massage services and their suggestions on how to enjoy the activities of Watamu...

Lonnie Lodge offers a full board rate for solo women travellers without a single supplement. This was a tempting offer so I booked a 3 night stay. It was perfect, I had a beautiful tower room with balcony view of the sea, great bathroom and the little touches like a water dispenser in the room, fridge and tea and coffee,...
