Peponi Hotel is a small boutique hotel on the remote island of Lamu, situated in the Indian Ocean off the North Kenyan coast. Run by the Korschen family who happened upon the old building by chance in the 1960’s. The story begins on the families final holiday in Malindi; Aage 'Lemmy' and Wera Korschen had been farmers in upcountry Kenya until their land was acquired during independence. As Kenya had become home for them and their three children; Lars, Hanne and Nils, they tried to find a suitable replacement career. However after a few years and not much luck they solemnly come to the conclusion it was time to leave Kenya for Argentina and continue their life there. During these last days Aage decided that, before leaving, he must visit a part of the coast he had always been drawn to; the Lamu Archipelago.

- All our rooms face the ocean but each is unique. From some there is a lush garden leading to the ocean view, from some you have a higher vantage point and can look over the channel from your veranda, and others have you right on the water where you can hear the lapping water as the tide changes.
