Kutazama is a luxury retreat which offers full use of the main house areas (lounges and dining area), and guest accommodation in private suites with verandahs, decking and huge beds. Undoubtedly one of the most breathtaking features of the property is the huge double-tiered pool, set under a 30ft high cliff, which runs the entire length of the pool area. The Orchid Tree house Villa is a separate entity built on the far side of the pool. 

It has its own Jacuzzi, dinning area, dedicated butler and chef A small feature waterfall cascades from the cliff top into the upper pool and from there escapes into the lower pool. The lower pool has been designed as a recreational pool with 4 underwater seats facing the dramatic sunsets plus an infinity edge overlooking the sanctuary. There is a BBQ area for ‘alfresco’ dining when the underwater pool lights create a magical night-time atmosphere. Game drives, walks and picnics are organized in the elephant sanctuary or in Shimba Hills and any trip and activities in the Diani area can easily be arranged for guests.
