and spacious suites further invite you to relax and unwind with soothing rainfall showers and generous bathtub, a private outside terrace with log fire, a 32” flat screen TV with satellite service and attractive décor reflecting the omnipresent theme of coffee. 

The Grill Room restaurant and The Bistro boast menus to satisfy the most discerning of palates, successfully fusing international culinary prowess with locally-sourced ingredients. The Bistro also has a wood-fired pizza oven. Other culinary delights are the garden lunches - a 4-course alfresco buffet hosted daily in the garden, or the traditional Swahili food offerings at Jikoni in the Trader’s Walk. 

Located within the grounds of an operational coffee plantation, you can partake in a coffee tour, showing the process that brings a coffee bean from ‘tree to cup’ - from cultivation, to harvesting, drying and roasting. The tour culminates in an all-important tasting of the farm’s coffee blends.
