This was our second trip to Lamu and Peponi, but our first with the children. It is a wonderful place and a true gem made by the owners, management and great staff and location.
Owner properties are hard to find these days and should be treasured. The hotel is quirky and full of character.
Some of the old negative reviews are very extreme and were written by people who never stayed at the hotel but popped in for a meal or drink. The hotel really protects and pampers its resident guests so you have your own bar, a private restaurant and gardens. This keep you away from the busy local bar. Those visitors probably felt shut out, I guess they should have paid to stay.
It was 10 years from our first visit, to our second and if anything it was even better the second time. How many hotels and restaurant can be that consistent?
If you want uniform rooms, with numbers on the door and a chain hotel, that gives you mileage points and bland food and ambiance, this is not the place for you.
It you like unique, different, exclusive, adventure and remote unspoilt locations and fantastic fun and a friendly hotel then you have come to the right place.
We cannot wait to go back and we rarely go back to the same place.
