The minute you think of Kenya, your imagination takes you to being up close and personal with its wildlife, safaris and panoramic landscapes, but there is another side of Kenya you will enjoy if you stay at Lonno Lodge in Watamu, Kenya.
Watamu is a town which faces the Indian Ocean and boasts of one of the best beaches in Africa. One of the hidden gems of Kenya, this quaint sleepy town is where you can escape the city life and enjoy its natural wonders such as the Watamu Marine National Park, Blue Lagoon, Turtle Bay, and Mida Creek. Its numerous attractions include the Bio-Ken Snake Farm, a small snake farm which features a variety of snakes, shield reptiles, crocodiles, frogs and toads; the Gedes Ruins a vast complex where you will find the ruins of a Swahili palace, tombs and mosques; and enjoy learning more about turtles and be a part of a good cause at the Watamu Turtle Watch. There are two ways you can get to Watamu, you can fly into Malindi airport from Nairobi which is just thirty minutes away from the town, or fly into Mombasa and enjoy an hour and a half scenic drive to Watamu. To complete your Watamu experience, you must stay at the Lonno Lodge, one of the best hotels in Watamu.
Lonno Lodge opened its doors to the public in 2009. It is owned and operated by Aldo and Sylvia, an Italian couple who has been living in Watamu since 2006. Facing the sea, and nestled in a secluded part of Watamu, the lodge provides you the opportunity enjoy numerous water activities without the usual crowd and noise. Although its luxurious rooms are equipped with top-notch amenities, the rooms do not have air-conditioning so you get to enjoy the cool breeze coming from the Ocean. Facilities include a swimming pool, a wellness center, a pool bar, and a restaurant where you can local and native cuisine.
What more can you ask for? Lonno Lodge provides you with the privacy you need, the activities to enjoy, the luxurious accommodations, and delightful dishes to savor. Consult your travel agent for more details.
