Peponi Hotel - Lamu Island, Kenya

Peponi Hotel, Mombasa

Peering through one teakwood door at Peponi Hotel, one faces the Swahili world. Opening the other, one hears the tide bursting on the coral reef and feels the first flush of trade winds. The Peponi commands the headland between the world of traditional peoples and a lonely sea.

To the southwest, lies an 8 mile stretch of soft sand that the locals call crowded if ten people, in all its length, are visible. To the northwest towers the great sand
dune where the bleached bones of the dead of a battle 175 years ago still
surface when a brisk wind blows.


Two miles due north lies Lamu, a small Arab town still ignorant of cars where streets are just wide enough for one fully laden donkey to pass. The hotel has 25 rooms, with high Lamu style beds, ensuite bathrooms, mosquito nets and ceiling fans.

The rooms are divided into superior and standard rooms. All rooms at Peponi have 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 our rooms are built right on the beach, with private verandah areas overlooking the sea, while the rest have a combination of ocean and garden views. All rooms have overhead fans, mosquito nets, showers, fresh flowers, and personal safes.

Dinner is distinguished by a plethora of new ways of celebrating seafood with ginger, lime and garlic. Mangrove crabs, warm water lobster, squid, giant prawns and fish of all varieties.

For something a little more local, a Swahili menu is also available, which can be eaten in the traditional way, on the floor, around a huge brass platter.
