Lokuti is a village in Saku Parish, Harju County, Estonia, located about 17 km (11 mi) south of the capital Tallinn. It has a population of 95 (as of 1 June 2012).[2]

The Tallinn–Rapla (Tallinn–Viljandi) road (nr. 15) passes through Lokuti. The Vääna River flows through the village on its northern side.

In 1499 a Lokuta farmstead (Locketal) was mentioned on the site for the first time. Later a support manor of Saku Manor was located here (Paulshof).[1] The nowadays settlement developed in the 1950s. In the 1960s a barn for cows with 448 slots was built.[3]

In 2006 there were plans to built 1600 new residential buildings into Lokuti, so the settlement would grow into a small borough with a population of 5000.[4] Since then no building process has taken place.
