The Staggering Olarro in Kenya
Summer comes for regular, conventional people, as well as for nighties. If you’re part of the second group, you might choose the Olarro instead of the regular destinations like the Caribbean, Thailand or Malaysia. Well, those boast with their own, individual charm, but maybe sometimes you want to get closer to nature, you just want to feel closer to Gaia. In this case, Olarro proves to be a staggering destination, deep in the heart of the Black Continent.
Situated in southwestern Kenya, in the Rift Valley, upon the greenery of the Masai Mara Reserve, the resort is as peaceful as it is gorgeous to admire. It is reachable from Nairobi via a 3-hour drive or from the Siana airstrip, one hour and a half away. Presented with the Best New Hotels in 2011 and the World’s Most Romantic Hotel in 2011 awards by Travel + Leisure, the Olarro provides an unforgettably gorgeous African experience and bespoke tranquility.
Wake up early and embark on a journey through the local surroundings, just to admire the beautiful flora and fauna, or opt for a game drive at night, just to enjoy that deep silence. Wining, dining, cultural tours and balloon rides are also available at any time, alongside truly enjoyable strolls and visits to the local spa.
There’s so much to see here, so many places to visit and so many things to enjoy that I’m sure everyone who comes here once will want to get here again. The staff members are superb as well, they add to the beauty and charm of this place in a very significant amount.
You don’t even have to bring your mountain bike with you – you can hop on one courtesy of the resort and head out into the bush. But don’t forget your binoculars at your room, as there are hundreds of species of animals and birds to watch, which you’ll only be able to see here. Dining-wise, the Olarro is as exquisite as any European citadin hotel. In terms of accommodation, there are 7 cottages ready to offer you hostage, in Main Olarro, while Little Olarro is famous for the level of privacy it provides. Nightly rates at the Olarro start at $930.
