Peponi hotel

Peponi is a small hotel on the exotic island of Lamu, in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Kenya. Peponi is still run by the Korschen family, who opened the hotel in 1967 and which still retains much of the character and charm that it had then. Small and personal, it is the perfect rest after a safari or a hide away holiday from modern life

Peponi has just 24 rooms, which are divided into superior and standard rooms. All rooms at Peponi have ocean views. Superior rooms are differentiated by their location, size and private outside area with swing bed. All rooms have overhead fans, mosquito nets, showers (no baths), fresh flowers, and personal safes.

The New York Times remembered us for our giant prawns but whether it be for fresh seafood and sushi or traditional Swahili style cooking, our innovative breakfast, lunch and dinner menus and stunning settings offers some of the best dining in East Africa.

Peponi’s legendary bar is a favourite watering hole for guests and Shela village inhabitants alike, with “its nexus of entertainment, its fountain of gossip”. The bar is run by Charles, who will whip up our famous house cocktail “Old Pal” in an instant or pour a fresh juice or cold beer.

Peponi’s gardens have been integral part of the hotel and Shela village for over 40 years and boast one of the largest and most varied collections of tropical palms and exotic plants on the Kenyan coast. Swing hammocks under the shade of coconut trees and a fresh water free form swimming pool under two giant Baobab trees offer.

THE HOTEL IS CLOSED IN MAY AND JUNE
