Arijiju’s architecture borrows from the Kenyan tradition of grouping rooms to house multi-generations, with three suites in the main house and two generous cottages along a stone pathway. All have indulgent copper bathtubs, outdoor showers and vast arched windows, while open fireplaces and slouchy, crumpled linens nod to old-world safari. A constellation suite on the roof offers unbridled views of the expansive night sky.
Spa therapists and yoga instructors, Frida and Eunice, blend established techniques with Samburu and Masai medicinal traditions to create delicious, effective treatments. Their sumptuous scrubs, deep tissue massages, rejuvenating facials and soothing body wraps use foraged and local ingredients like wild honey, Kericho green tea, brown sugar, lime and avocado. Up to six treatments per day are included with the house.
