In the Great Rift Valley lies one of Kenya’s best-kept secrets, “Chui Lodge”. The lodge, set in the privately owned Oserian Wildlife Sanctuary, is an exclusive and exquisite paradise nestled in a grove of Euphorbia trees, overlooking a waterhole with the dramatic Mau Escarpment as a backdrop. This setting epitomises the Masai translation of the word Oserian as being a “place of peace”.
Chui Lodge is crafted from simple bush stone, local Acacia, Leleshwa and Olive woods with a beautiful twisted Marula roof. All the textiles in the Lodge are original batik artworks done on site, whose warm shades enhance the earthy colours of the ochre enriched walls. Magical bark cloth lampshades bathe the African antiques and fascinating carvings on the pillars in subtle light.
The five individual and well-spaced cottages are built in the same fashion as the main building. Each room is uniquely designed with en-suite bathrooms and a delightful veranda with its own view. The marble basin tops, roaring log fires, artistically decorated windows and magnificent four-poster king-sized beds ensure the essential touch of luxury. With only five rooms available, guests can expect to receive excellent service from staff and attention to detail like no other place ever visited in Africa.
A short walk from the main building is the delightful heated swimming pool with great views of the waterhole and the Escarpment. Outstanding professionally trained chefs deliver an exquisite array of cuisine to suit all tastes; the emphasis is on diverse multi-cultural cuisine, which is made possible with an extensive kitchen and a Tapinyaki hot plate.
Chui Lodge is easily accessible from Nairobi by road in about 1-1/2 hours along the Nairobi – Nakuru Highway.
