Lion in the Sun, set in a beautiful tropical setting on the Kenyan Coast, is both a wellbeing retreat and a luxury boutique hotel. The intimate, peaceful atmosphere envelops visitors upon arrival and the pace of life slows down. Senses are heightened by the natural and tranquil surroundings and guests unwind in the knowledge that every need has been anticipated and all expectations exceeded.

Relax in the beautifully manicured gardens, alive with the fragrance of exotic local plants. Unwind by one of four refreshing seawater pools; retreat to any of 16 uniquely and luxuriously decorated rooms in the four villas nestled in the tropical gardens. The Superior rooms, designed for maximum comfort and privacy, feature views of their intimate villa gardens and private pool, while the suites are supremely spacious.

Using only the purest ingredients, the chefs at Lion in the Sun infuse local flavours with international and contemporary flair. The daily-changing menu attracts food connoisseurs from around the world. With all the ingredients so fresh, natural, local and organic, even those guests not on the detox programme will feel purified during their stay.

The retreat’s private beach is a haven of stylish relaxation, located just 300 metres away in the Malindi Marine Park. The Indian Ocean’s turquoise waves lap gently at guests’ feet — it’s the perfect place to sit back and soak up the atmosphere.

For those who wish to take advantage of their surroundings and get even closer to nature, a private boat is available to cruise along Malindi’s coastline, before stopping to let guests explore the town on foot and haggle with the locals in the markets. If a more disciplined form of exercise suits, the retreat’s personal trainer complements the programme with a variety of activities from yoga and meditation to workouts in the fully equipped, high-tech gym.

The Lion in the Sun Spa offers new and exciting opportunities for health and physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing. Guests will benefit from bespoke programmes that are tailored to their individual needs.
