The Charming Lonno Lodge Watamu 4 stars

Hotel in Watamu Beach, Watamu

Lonno Lodge features a salt-water pool lined with thatched parasols and a private beach area. Located 4 km from Watamu centre, it provides luxury accommodation decorated with local artefacts. Everything was perfect - one of the best hotel we have been in our life. The atmosphere is very special. The design of the hotel is better than a 5 stars hotel. The owners and staff take care of every details. We appreciate also a lot the bedroom and swimming pool with sea view. Amazing food there as well.
