Located on the Borana Conservancy in the Laikipia district of the central eastern Rift Valley province of Kenya, Arijiju Retreat is a beautiful private sanctuary with an abundance of wildlife, multiple opportunities for exciting outdoor adventures and world-class wellness facilities.

Inspired by ancient architecture and monastic buildings, the retreat was built by local craftsmen using local stone and timber and is powered by solar energy. Hand-cut Mera stone, grassed roofs and immense, wooden Lamu-style doors all feature, creating a unique and contemporary living space.

The main living and dining area is open plan, light and spacious with floor-to-ceiling arched windows and huge stone fireplaces at either end. There is also a lounge and bar area which is lit by candles in the evening creating an intimate and relaxed ambiance, perfect for enjoying a cocktail or two at the end of the day.

An office or library area is furnished with a large desk, Mac computer and wireless internet whilst a games room equipped with classic board games and table football provides entertainment for the whole family. There is also a cinema room complete with seriously squashy couches where guests can stretch out and relax in front of a movie.

Arijiju Retreat has five stylish suites which accommodate up to ten guests in five-star comfort. Three bedrooms are located in the main residence, each with a king-size bed, leather desk, deep copper bath, indoor/outdoor shower and a fireplace. There are two additional guest cottage suites which are connected to the main house. These are equipped with four-poster beds, elegant stone fireplaces, lounge areas with sofa beds and large bathrooms. All of the bedrooms have been beautifully designed and decorated and exude understated luxury.

Sustainably built, the traditionally-styled thatched Spa House is the ultimate retreat with a wood-burning hot tub, vaulted stone-built hammam, cold plunge pool and rain shower. Below is the tranquil Treatment Room surrounded by acacias and there is also a gym equipped with free weights, treadmill, boxing equipment and bicycle and rowing machines. A yoga studio offers meditative views over the valley as does a 20 metre infinity lap pool which is surrounded by cushioned sun loungers.

Along with the interconnecting Leawa Conservancy, the Borana Conservancy spans over 90,000 acres and is home to a whole host of wildlife from lions and cheetahs to elephants, leopards and endangered black and white rhino. Guests can explore the reserve in a variety of ways – walking safaris, mountain biking, horse riding and game drives are all possibilities.
