Lamu Archipelago
Kenya

Run by the Korschen family who happened upon the old building by chance in the 1960’s, Peponi Hotel is a small boutique hotel on the remote island of Lamu, situated in the Indian Ocean off the North Kenyan coast.

Sitting at the beginning of the 14km stretch that is Shella beach, Peponi first opened its doors in 1967. A trip here is a step back in time, and laid back days will be spent enjoying lazy lunches, good books and sunsets.

About Peponi Hotel

Whilst the hotel has grown since its early days as a 4 bedroomed guest house, Peponi is still run by the Korschen family, and the same 'home from home' laid back ethos and atmosphere remains. Over the years Peponi has organically grown into a small boutique hotel with 29 rooms, all of which have an ocean view and each unique in decor and lay out.

Rooms at Peponi Hotel

Guest have a choice of superior or standard rooms; superior rooms are differentiated by their location, size and private outside area with swing bed. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, overhead fans inside the mosquito net and personal safes. In addition there are family rooms, sleeping up to 4, and 3 apartments featuring a spacious open living, kitchen and dining area.

Activities at Peponi Hotel

There are plenty of activities on offer including water sports for all age groups and levels of experience, with competent instructors on hand and a wide range of equipment to hire from windsurfers, body boards, wake boards and water skis. In addition, the archipelago offers some of Kenya’s best snorkelling waters, with favourable conditions between October and April. Or you may just choose to relax by the pool, overlooking the ocean, drink in hand.

Food at Peponi Hotel

Peponi prides itself on its diverse and sustainable cuisine. The restaurant offers a good selection of menus with influences from around the globe but rooted in local culture. From Japanese to Italian and Swahili to South-East Asian cuisine, there's a great variety of dishes to suit all tastes. Produce is locally sourced, and the seafood exceptional.
