Saruni is a new, deluxe and intimate lodge set in a remote valley in a private conservation area outside the Masai Mara National Reserve. With accommodation for only 12 guests in six spectacular cottages, it is at the heart of the most exciting wilderness of Kenya. The rooms are furnished with colonial antiques, Persian carpets and African art. Each cottage has hot and cold running water, electricity, polished wooden floors, and large bathrooms where the canvas front can be totally open to offer you an amazing “shower with a view”. Décor is unique for each cottage and from the large verandahs o¬ne enjoys a unique view of the Mara plains and the nearby waterhole. Kuro House is the common dining area and is a mixture of old-fashioned Africa and modern design. Its huge fireplace is the focal point of life at Saruni and it is here that our guests exchange memories of the day’s safaris. While reminiscing they can start to savor the exceptional cuisine that is served using fresh, locally grown and organic produce in inventive ways. In collaboration with Grand Hotel des Iles Borromees (Stresa, Italy) and its world-famous spa – Centro Benessere Stresa, Saruni runs the Masai Wellbeing Space. It is a unique feature in the Masai Mara: in the most serene and relaxing environment, guests enjoy massage and wellness treatments under the supervision of highly trained staff. Game drive are in fully-open Land Rovers and one can also explore the plains and the mountains on foot led by a professional guide and by a tracker.
