"Charming Lonno Lodge - a stunning retreat"
The food is sumptuous, especially if you like seafood and Italian cuisine and there's a good wine list. There is a well maintained (saltwater) pool and beautiful gardens with shady lounging areas and swing divans dotted about for relaxing in the warm breeze.
The lodge is built on coral cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean with its reef and offshore islets and local fishing craft sail past at high tide. At low tide you can walk/wade out to the reef and on from there to visit Watamu town which is very unspoilt with a few cafes and restaurants in amongst ethnic shops and stalls.
Nearby attractions include the Bio-Ken snake farm, The Arabuke Sokoke forest (home to endemic birds such as the Sokoke Scops Owl) and the fascinating Gedi Ruins. All well worth a visit and easily accessible by tuk-tuk or taxi but Lonno will send you out in their smart vehicle at a modest cost.
Altogether a very relaxing end to a brilliant safari - barefoot luxury sums it up!" See all these reviews: 13n in Kenya
