Kutazama Lodge is located in the Shimba Hills, 30 mins from Diani Beach, on an escarpment overlooking the Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary and has spectacular views over uninhabited plains and forests, stretching as far as Tanzania and Mount Kilimanjaro. The lodge construction is unique, being built into the side of the escarpment and much of it is open with huge thatch roofs and wonderful views from each room.
Game drives, walks and picnics are organized in the elephant sanctuary or in Shimba Hills and any trip and activities in the Diani area can easily be arranged for guests.
Kutazama is a luxury retreat which offers full use of the main house areas (lounges and dining area), and guest accommodation in private suites with verandahs, decking and huge beds. Undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking features of the property is the huge double-tiered pool, set under a 30ft high cliff, which runs the entire length of the pool area. The Orchid Tree house Villa is a separate entity built on the far side of the pool.
The en-suite bathroom contains luxurious fittings including double vanity units, bidet, toilet and double shower. Steps down from the bedroom and a short pathway between raised flower beds leads to a totally secluded, private sundeck next to the bedroom which includes a beautiful full-moon Jacuzzi set into natural rocks.
Kutazama lodge dedicated team includes a top class head chef, who will discuss your meals each day after breakfast, he will let you know what fresh seafood, meat, cheeses, and fresh vegetables so that you can select something to suit your plate for the day. You will also have your own butler who will ensure that your food, drinks and other needs are met to your satisfaction. There is an additional team of 8 staff who tend the gardens and pool and also look after housekeeping and general maintenance.
There is a BBQ area for ‘alfresco’ dining when the underwater pool lights create a magical night-time atmosphere.
