Loldia House is an ideal spot to relax, taste the pleasures of Kenyan country life and explore the Great Rift Valley.
Built in WW2 by the Italian Prisoners of War, Loldia House is an original Kenyan home set on an old farm on the shores of Lake Naivasha. Here guests can experience the heritage of Kenya’s early settlers – with its gentle pace of life, one can drive, walk or horse ride among the herds of plains game which live alongside farm animals on the ranch.
Loldia House offers a choice of accommodation either in the old family house or in cottages in the grounds. In the main house, there is one en-suite double room, furnished in the original settler style. Close by are three other guest cottages (each housing two separate rooms, all en-suite), surrounded by pretty gardens and offering incredible views across the lake to the extinct volcano, Mount Longonot. Up on the hill is the specially built Top Cottage, which has three double bedrooms and its own sitting room with an open log fire, making it ideal for families or close friends travelling together. The vista from up here is stupendous!
We have a lovely pool-side spa room offering a range of treatments to include facials, massages, body scrubs, manicures and pedicures. Please view the full treatment list HERE.
Loldia House is only a two hour drive from Nairobi and is within easy reach of Nairobi’s International Airport. It is also conveniently located for day trips to the famous Lake Nakuru National Park. There are daily flights on Governors’ Aviation direct from Nairobi to Loldia House and then on to the Masai Mara, making it the perfect place from which to begin or end your exciting safari holiday around Kenya.
