Our whole Family (2 adults and two kids aged 2 and 5) stayed 4 days at Olarro. This was our first African experience and Olarro had been strongly recommended by friends. We stayed at Little Olarro and it is absolutely stunning: tasteful design and decoration, beautiful layout and full privacy from the other rooms. The level of service was second to none, food was above anything we had expected in such a remote place - our kids eat like never! From arriving at the airstrip nearby to our drop-off at the airport in Nairobi, the level of service, professionalism and above everything the kindness of the staff made us feel welcomed and respected. Within minutes of driving out of the lodge one can spot a wide range of animals and if you feel like a lazy night on the sofa near the fire looking at the sunset while enjoying a double "blue label" on the rocks, there is no better place to do so! A trip I would recommend to anyone looking for "that special place" in Kenya, very child friendly and very respectful of the environment.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the Loita Hills, perched on a 2,000m high vantage point and designed by renowned architect and artist Anthony Russell, Olarro is an eco-lodge of the highest order. A unique, artistically styled retreat built with undulating curves that mimic the rolling hillside on which the lodge is set; blending in effortlessly into its surrounds. The interior is a cool white, accented by earth-toned accessories and enhanced by modern décor chosen for its quality and the integrity of its design.Lying within its own 7,000 acres private conservancy, Olarro is surrounded by 150,000 acres of Maji Moto Group Ranch, which is owned by the local Maasai people. The Lodge offers a private wilderness, with rolling hills of bush-land, savannah valleys and spreading acacias trees. It is a unique environment, where the Maasai pastoralists for centuries have co-existed peacefully with wild animals. The Conservancy sits along the corridor of the annual wildebeest migration and plays a significant role in the Greater Nguruman, Loita, Mara, and Serengeti ecosystems. Olarro is 99% powered by renewable energy. Olarro has a sophisticated installation of solar and wind energy-generation systems. These renewable energy systems include wind turbines and solar panels that charge deep-cycle batteries, solar water heaters to supply all the hot water needs and solar pumps to provide all the water requirements for the lodge as well as filter the swimming pool. ... more less
