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 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 29 rooms, which are divided into suites, superior and standard rooms. All rooms at Peponi have ocean views. Suites and Superior rooms are differentiated by their location, size and private outside area with swing bed.
