Latest addition to the camp and cottage, located in northern Kenya, in the Laikipia, on the Lewa Conservancy, and an important part of a small group of pioneering eco-lodges, Sirikoi House is a first rate piece of accommodation.
A thatch, wood and stone build, situated away from the main lodge and sold on an exclusive basis, Sirikoi is self-sufficient, comes with its own dedicated staff cohort and consists of a lounge, veranda and three en-suite bedrooms. Characterised by high ceilings and plenty of outdoor access, the shared areas are spacious, airy and extremely comfortable, the style worldly, the seating sumptuous, cream and arranged about an open fire, the neo-upcountry look – like the rest of the lodge – informed by a tasteful and well travelled eye, the rugs, chests, tables and wall chairs sourced from more the one place, the overall look both restrained and luxurious, the off-white canvas complimented by dark woods and cut flower dashes of colour. It really is very beautiful.
And the rooms at Sirikoi House are just as good. Lit by huge, found-wood framed windows, each room comes with a double bed, en-suite bathroom, seating area, writing table and storage. A run of creams, the occasional dark wood splash, open vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and making the most of their views, the bedrooms fall in line with the shared area, their central motifs part – once again – of a design that is all about restraint, subtly and deep comfort.
Activities at Sirikoi House depend very much on guests’ needs and wants. Service includes a private vehicle, driver and guide. Activities include game drives, guided walks, horse riding fly camping, lion tracking, fishing, helicopter trips, homestead visits, camel treks and a bi-plane flight.
