Hopping from one city to another, seeing thousands of people and experiencing different moments can get tiring after some time. Therefore, we understand that you may need to simply disconnect, relax and recharge. That is why we have compiled a list of our favourite escape destinations.
Entim Sidai Wellness Sanctuary
The name alone is enough to convince you to book a whole day in this magical place. Located on Rura Drive off Tree Lane in Karen Nairobi, this place is a literal Eden. Picture constant rustling of leaves in the wind, colourful birds and the occasional monkey leaping from one branch to another as unbothered as it can be. This is what Sidai has in store for you. Aside from the tension easing massages, facials and spa treatments one can get, the Sanctuary’s environment alone is enough to carry your troubles away.
If you happen to be in Malindi, and you have booked the Ocean Beach Resort as your home during your stay, then you are in great luck. The Morjana Spa is part of the Ocean Beach Resort. The Spa is just an added bonus to the beautiful white sand beaches that litter the coastline of this small town. You can enjoy cleansing facials, rejuvenating body massages, well-deserved mani-pedis and most of all, just quiet time away from the noise and chaos of the world.
Sarova Woodlands Spa Nakuru
The Sarova chain of hotels is well known for being different and going all out for its customers. The Sarova Woodlands Hotel in Nakuru is no different. Located just off the Nakuru-Nairobi highway, the spa gives you an easily accessible escape from the city activities. Although there are no forests like Etim Sidai, the facility is still set up in one of the prestigious estates of the city where disturbance is guaranteed to be absent. The best part is that the Spa is part of the Hotel so you can enjoy a chilled drink or a bowl of fruits as the pores on your skin get to breathe and pulls and spasms in your muscles get undone.
Olkaria Geothermal Spa
The Olkaria Spa is nothing short of a gift from heaven and mother Nature herself. Imagine sitting in a swimming pool that is kept constantly warm thanks to the continuous volcanic activities occurring underground. The vapour from the hot springs and geysers are enough to give your skin a fresh feel as the oil and dirt get to be rinsed off. The best part is that you can first start with site seeing and nature trailing around the Hell’s Gate Park before finally resting at this natural miracle spa.
