At the very root of Swahili culture
Reach Peponi by boat and realise there is only one car on the island
Peponi Hotel is a small hotel on a headland of the exotic island of Lamu, situated just off the coast of Kenya, the very root of Swahili culture. The island is a real getaway; there is only one car on the island and the narrow streets of the old town are very much as they always were. Peponi hotel celebrates it’s 50th year and is still run by the original family, giving it personal character and charm.
Peponi Hotel has a total of 24 rooms, which are divided into superior and standard rooms, all with ocean views. The superior rooms are differentiated by their location, size, private outside area, indoor plants, artwork and Swahili furnishings. No two rooms are alike. Five of the rooms are built right on the beach, with private veranda areas overlooking the sea. All rooms have overhead fans, mosquito nets, showers, fresh flowers, and personal safes.
Activities at Peponi Hotel include fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, water-sports including water skiing, knee-boarding, tubing, scuba diving, full moon dhow cruises.
