Above the shores of Lake Naivasha set in a private 18,000 acre wildlife sanctuary Chui Lodge is a veritable oasis in the dry escarpment country of the Rift Valley.
The inspiration for the lodge’s creation emanated from the Zwager family and also involved the local community and skilled craftsmen. Chui Lodge is built from simple bush stone, local Acacia, Olive and Leleshwa woods with a twisted marula roof.
There are 8 en suite individual and well-spaced luxurious cottages each with its own veranda and views of the Rift Valley escarpment and the sanctuary. All 8 bedrooms have magnificent four poster king size olive wood beds, roaring log fires, artistically decorated artwork and hand crafted furniture made in our onsite workshop. Three of these rooms: Oserian, Oloidien and Shemeji are deluxe and have more privacy, large cozy sitting rooms and a mini bar.
The dining room, lounge and bar area feature pillars and murals with intricate African carvings, African antiques and ochre colored each walls creating the feel of an artist’s gallery.
A short walk from the main building and cottages is a swimming pool with views across the waterhole and the wildlife sanctuary beyond.
Catering is headed by our Chef Richard Langat and features an array of 5 star and much talked about international cuisine with many ingredients sourced locally including vegetables, fruits and dairy products from our own farm. A tepinyaki hot plate caters for those who would like something different.
In our continuing quest for sustainable conservation and sensible environmental management all electricity used at Chui Lodge comes from the geothermal power station at Oserian Flowers.
