Spa Room

We have a lovely pool-side spa room offering a range of treatments to include facials, massages, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures. Please check out the full treatment list. Due to Covid-19, unfortunately our massages and spa treatments are not available until further notice.

Toiletries

Please note that we provide a lovely range of ‘Cinnabar Green’ toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, soap and body lotion) in the rooms. These products are refilled into reusable metal canisters so as to reduce on plastic waste. They are also handmade in Kenya with natural ingredients and are therefore in keeping with the sensitive environment in which we operate. We urge you to please use our products rather than your own.

Water bottle

We would strongly encourage you to please pack your own water bottle which can be refilled as often as you like – we have Reverse Osmosis filtered water dispensers throughout our camps and lodges, which is perfectly safe to drink. This would help us immensely by reducing the amount of plastic waste in these precious wildlife environments.

Hells Gate National Park

Deep gorges twist and turn, cutting into rock that witnessed humanity take its first steps. Extinct volcanoes, though still standing tall against the African sky, have been whittled down by the passing of time. The sense of timelessness is heightened by the acrid smell of sulphur piercing the air – hot, bubbling springs finally giving up age-old gases.

As one of Africa’s smallest national parks, Hell’s Gate harks back to the prehistoric. Measuring just 26 square miles, it provides visitors with the opportunity to experience an area of profound geological interest, and immerse themselves in the distant past. Guests are Loldia House can visit Hell’s Gate on a day trip, where they’ll have the option to be accompanied by one of our resident naturalists on a walk, learning not only about the area’s special geological features but also its captivating wildlife.
