Kenya Spa Safaris - Lion in the Sun


Situated on the beautiful Kenyan coast, just a stone’s throw from the Indian Ocean, nestled amidst frangipani, bougainvillea and coconut trees, is the sun resort- once the home of Formula One honcho and Italian jetsetter Flavio Briatore. The intimate 16- bedroom hotel set across three acres is just a short flight from Nairobi and is located some 80 miles north of Mombasa on one of Kenya’s most beautiful stretches of coastline.

Lion in the sun was transformed only two years ago from being Mr. Briatore’s private residence into an exclusive resort of the highest caliber.

The Lion in the Sun’s restaurant offers up first class fare, combining Italian flavours with some local and more exotic ingredients. With coral sand private beach, tennis court and golf and horse-riding available nearby, there is no shortage of things to do here.

Downtown in Malindi the locals are known for their friendliness and the same warm welcome can be expected from the 60 staff at the Lion in the Sun, all whom are devoted to ensuring guests’ happiness during their stay.
With its authentic African interiors, arresting physical location and wonderful local flavour, a visit to Malindi and the Lion in the Sun resort will feel like a true escape from the grind of ordinary life.

One of the highlights of any visit here is the acclaimed Thala Spa Henri Chenot, offering a range of aesthetic and thalassotherapy treatments to soothe tired bodies. In collaboration with Henri Chenot, the Spa utilizes the renowned ‘Henri Chenot Method’ combining advanced clinical and physiological techniques with the principles of ancient Chinese medicine to unblock energy channels and achieve equilibrium in the human body. The spa will also devise for its guests a special ‘bio-light’ diet-made up of local organic products and rich in vitamins and minerals.

Amongst the famous names that have come to detox at the Lion in the sun’s are Naomi Campbell, Fernando Alonso, Robert Cavalli, Bono and John Galliano, to name a few. The spa’s weekly detox package is irresistible; comprising a personalized bio-light diet, six messages and six hydrotherapy treatments, six mud therapy treatments and six hydro-jets.
