Peponi Hotel is a boutique hotel in Lamu that is Kenya's ultimate beach hideout. It's the perfect way to end a safari journey, where the pace of life slows to mimic a dhow sailing peacefully on calm ocean waters.

Family-owned since 1967, the hotel retains its original charm, a step back into an era of bygone elegance, where even the coffee is still poured from brass pots. The swimming pool lies under two baobab trees and overlooks the ocean. This is the spot for a good book and a delicious lunch.

The bar is a favourite watering hole where fresh rock oysters or coconuts are served, drinks can be enjoyed, and you can get acquainted with the locals of Lamu and their fascinating Swahili culture.

When you aren't whiling away leisure hours poolside with a spectacular view of the ocean, you can revel in lively conversation at the bar, stop in for a delicious meal at the restaurant, or request a massage to ease into island life and its rejuvenating atmosphere.


Peponi Hotel has a restaurant that offers a fabulous selection of menu items that take influences from all over the world, but are rooted in local culture. Japanese, Italian, Swahili and South-East Asian cuisine is an art form here. All the salad greens are grown at the hotel and there is a vegan and a vegetarian menu.
