This has to be the most unique places you can ever stay in luxury – a tree house. The Ritz meets Swiss Family Robinson. Well loved everything from the outdoor shower to baboons on our deck.
However, this place might not be for everyone. Remember that you are staying in a tree. There will be spider webs in your room and ants on your floor. At night, you are not allowed to walk to your tree house by yourself, you have a masai warrior escort you.
The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The food was amazing – it’s a set menu so you have to have the mentality of “you get what you get so don’t through a fit.” Don’t get me wrong – it’s all 5-star cuisine.
Each morning your wake-up call is your individual butler waking you up by bringing coffee (or tea or hot chocolate or whatever you like) with biscuits to your tree house. Then you go for breakfast – which is a combination buffet and a cook that will whip something up for you.
Like all &Beyond lodgings, it’s big bucks but it’s also a once in a lifetime experience.
