Unique Retreat Oasis

Where Luxury Meets Nature, Wellness, and Unique Safari Adventures

Over a decade, architects Alex Michaelis of London-based Michaelis Boyd and Nick Plewman of Johannesburg-based Plewman Architects collaborated to bring Arijiju to life. The location was meticulously chosen, influenced by Michaelis' 'holy trinity': sunrise, sunset, and Mount Kenya views, with an added emphasis on the valley's acoustics for a harmonious bird chorus. Inspired by Ethiopian rock-hewn churches and Le Thoronet Abbey, the building features vaulted archways and stone passageways, creating a unique ambiance.


Arijiju comprises five exquisite suites, three around the central courtyard and two nestled in olive groves, each designed by interior designer Maira Koutoudakis. A sixth 'constellation suite' offers a stargazing experience. Amenities include a dining room, games room, cinema, library, and a dedicated team of 20 staff. Beyond a safari lodge, Arijiju serves as a health and wellness retreat, offering organic cuisine, a spa, gym, yoga deck, tennis and squash courts, with treatments by skilled masseuses and beauty therapists included. Personal trainers, coaches, and unique guided 'running safaris' among the Big 5 are also available for an additional cost.
