The Maasai Mara is one of the most renowned safari destinations in Africa, home to the Big Five and stage to the great annual wildebeest migration. Soon, luxury travellers will immerse themselves in this wildlife experience, connecting with ancient forces of nature, from the secluded ultra-luxury Geoffrey Kent Suite at Sanctuary Olonana.
With an abundance of wildlife, and the dramatic Mara River which runs right past its forest setting, this enclave will be an environment that connects guests to this Kenyan landscape in an enriching way. The free-flowing space contains two private bedrooms, each fully en-suite, and it is accessed by a private road.
With its clean lines and sleek modernist silhouette, the suite’s interiors are the ideal setting from which to appreciate the wilderness that frames the view. Floor-to-ceiling windows open up for easy, breezy indoor-outdoor living. Floaty beds and midcentury-modern-feel furniture blend form with function. The rooms open on to wraparound decking, where there's a raised infinity pool with a grandstand look-out.
Freestanding tubs in the en-suites let guests soak in sunshine or view the night stars. The design and amenities are pitched to connect with the habitat, with locally quarried stone, Kenyan cedarwood, and all-natural toiletries. Soft, intelligent lighting evokes the ‘golden hour’, around the clock, with pendant lights gently illuminating the outside terrace.
Meals are prepared by a private chef in the suite’s own kitchen and served in the handsome dining room, with a fully stocked bar at the ready for first-class cocktails mixed exactly how you like them. In the heart of Kenya’s big game country, as a guest of the Geoffrey Kent Suite, you will also have your own dedicated safari guide and vehicle.
