Blog » Ending your Epic Safari on a High note: the Sirai Beach House Experience Get in touch

At the top of a peaceful cliff, 56 km northeast of Mombasa, where the Goshi River runs into the ocean… an extraordinary experience awaits.

Sirai Beach was built to complement Sirai House in the Borana Conservancy in the Laikipia region of Kenya. And it is an incredible choice for a final safari destination.

Sleep

Why not try turning it off and on again?

We instinctively know that the quality of our rest is intimately connected to the quality of our life. A holiday by itself might not reset you. Incredible sleep on holiday is guaranteed to re-invigorate your creativity, boost your energy levels, and inspire you to find new joy in life.

So.

At Sirai Beach, you will go to sleep between 400-thread Egyptian cotton, sourced directly from the Nile Valley. The sounds of the ocean gently drifting around you, the cleansing sea air filtering your surroundings and the rhythmic flashes of white foam rolling onto the sand like a mantra.

The contemporary Swahili coastal design throughout Sirai House and its garden cottages bathe every interior in soft shades of subtle luxury.

There is a grand staircase winding up from the atrium, sun-dappled verandas, covered terraces, indoor and outside showers… and bespoke products made with essential oils by a community enterprise in Nanyuki.

And everywhere, the ocean is a constant companion.

Feast

The only thing I like better than talking about food is eating.

John Walters

Head Chef Thoya loves creating beautiful food. We can tell from the smile wattage in the kitchen, and around the table. The signature lobster ravioli with saffron butter is a meal that may live forever in the stories people tell of their travels… but this kitchen is happy to prepare exactly what you would like from the locally sourced ingredients and line-caught fish.

Sip the wine and champagne from a collection of exquisite, hand-chosen estates with your meal as you dine in the dining room, or alfresco under the ancient trees, or on the ocean deck under the steady watch of a giant baobab.

Relax

… because it might be the most productive thing you do all year.

And at Sirai House the only decision you have to make is where you will relax.

Put your tunes on the Sonos and chill by the oceanside pool while the team looks after your cocktail glass… and your wet towels.

Play

Because play is the highest form of research.

Albert Einstein

And you may feel free to play at Sirai House…

Askari guards patrol the 10ft electric walls around the property 24/7 and access to the ocean is via a coral-lined staircase that spirals down through the cliff from the pool and is secured by a robust door at its exit.

The Sirai House ocean is yours. Quiet and undisturbed on the surface. A riot of life and color waiting to be discovered as you snorkel the clear tropical waters.

Or remain on the surface and peer at the hidden world through the glass bottom of a kayak or glide along on your paddleboard.

A sunset dhow cruise will take you along the mangroves and islands of Kilifi creek, and in summer the Northern Carmine Bee Eaters will accompany you on your journey.

Scuba, deep-sea fish, sail, kitesurf, wakeboard, water ski, jet ski, and windsurf from a little beach that is very close but across the tip of the headland.

If you can tear yourself away, the PGA Baobab Course at Vipingo Ridge is a 30-minute drive from the house and considered the best course in East Africa. The views are spectacular, and the playing conditions cool on a high ridge.

Horse riding is available at Vipingo.

And, you can always pop into the vibrant market of Kilifi town.

Invigorate

To find happiness… you must move.

The incredible views from the well-equipped gym may tempt you to work out. After dark, guests continue to enjoy the astroturf tennis court.

The team will also arrange for a yoga or Pilates instructor… and the house therapist awaits in the spa that opens onto the gardens.

Communicate

The human connection…

There is no need to disconnect at Sirai House (although you may be tempted to do so it is entirely at your own discretion).

Fast wi-fi can be found throughout the house and pool areas, and there is good phone reception in the house and grounds. Sonos is connected to every room and the pool for music and an air-conditioned library has a large screen TV so you can switch on, and switch off.
