6 Days 5 Nights Kenya Fly-in Holiday Peponi Hotel Lamu

6 Days 5 Nights Kenya Fly-in Holiday Peponi Hotel Lamu: This is a 5-night fly-in luxury holiday package to Peponi Hotel – a small boutique lodge on the remote island of Lamu, situated in the Indian Ocean off the North Kenyan coast.

Our Lamu Island holiday begins with a flight from Nairobi to Lamu Island. The flight takes approximately one hour and 30 minutes from Wilson airport. Upon arrival at Manda Island airstrip, you will be met by a representative from Peponi Hotel followed by a 15 minutes boat ride transfer to Shela beach located on the south eastern corner of Lamu Island.

Spend the next 6 days at Peponi Hotel based in Shela village. Peponi is a fabulous and very reasonably priced boutique hotel run by Lars and Carol Korschen, whose family house it has been since the 1960s.

A house that grew into a hotel, its iconic main building is synonymous with the beachfront of Shella village, situated at the start of a 14 km stretch of beach. Small and personal, it is the perfect rest after a safari or a hide away holiday from modern life.

Peponi has 28 rooms and all our rooms have an ocean view and each are unique in decor and lay out. Guest have a choice of superior, family rooms or standard rooms; superior are differentiated by their location, size and private outside area with a swing bed, they also have a hairdryer and mini fridge for use during your stay.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, overhead fans inside the mosquito net and personal safes. We focus on being as eco-friendly as possible from the amenities in the room to making our water through reverse osmosis to reduce the use of plastic.

Peponi’s gardens 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 perfect places to relax.

Although primarily a hotel, the restaurant has gained a named for itself as one of the best in East Africa, and there are multiple, spectacular settings to enjoy these delicious meals. Peponi’s legendary bar is a favorite watering hole for guests and Shella village inhabitants alike, so much so that demand required an extension.

The Jahazi Bar, opened in 2019, an area that can also be used as a private event space for drinks parties and dinners. 

Activities include exploring the archipelago under sail or motor, visit the ruins at Takwa at the high tide, raise a glass at sunset or sail under a full moon. Guided tours of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lamu Old Town are arranged every morning. Snorkeling and swimming with dolphins is possible between October and March, also deep-sea sports fishing or hand line fishing on local dhows can be arranged.

Private trainer and yoga classes by arrangement as well as massage treatments.
