To my knowledge, an Android app must be implemented, at some level, in
Java and specifically linked to Android Java libraries. That's a hard
limitation of the Android platform.
That implies that any Python program will need to be written at least
with partial awareness that it is not going to run in a native Python
VM, but instead get compiled to somehow run in a Java Android environment.

Yes, Kivy is one way to have a Python program that gets converted to an
Android native app.

Easier than Kivy? Probably not.
You might want to investigate the BeeWare suite as an alternative
<URL:https://pybee.org/>. Bonus: a single Python program can be compiled
to an app for multiple different platforms.
