You’ll arrive by boat to Peponi Hotel, which is perched neatly on the northern tip of Lamu island, at the point where the estuary opens out to the sea and winding paths through ancient villages turn into a panoramic 14km beach. The hotel was built in the 1960s by the Korschen family and what started as a simple four-bedroom guesthouse has transformed, across the generations, into an elegant 29 room hotel.
You’ll find a range of different room types at Peponi, from standard doubles to private villas, all with wonderful views across the water, ensuring there is something for everyone no matter your budget or preferred style of accommodation. The rooms are all uniquely decorated in coastal Swahili style and have quiet patios from which you’re heartily embraced by a refreshing ocean breeze.
Based in Shela village, most visitors to Peponi Hotel love to spend a morning strolling the pretty streets and browsing quaint shops full of locally crafted designs and trinkets. You can also take a tour of near-by Lamu Old Town, go deep sea fishing, snorkelling or enjoy a sunset sail with a cocktail in a traditional Lamu dhow.
No matter how you choose to spend your time at this much-loved, landmark hotel, you’re sure to find yourself quickly swept up in the friendly and inviting atmosphere and wishing you could stay just a little longer.
