Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge

Accommodation at Lake Naivasha

Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort is only an hour’s drive from Nairobi. It is located on 150 acres of grassland on the southern shore of Lake Naivasha. Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley. Acacia trees and bushes decorate the hotel grounds, adding to the African ambiance.

The Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge was constructed to wind its way through the trees so that none of the trees fell to make way for buildings. This is why the main public building is unusually shaped, making graceful curves around the vegetation. All this greenery attracts nearby animals – you see a few Safari animals like giraffes, hippos, waterbucks and monkeys on the grounds.

As a leading Naivasha Hotel from the Sopa Lodges Hotel-chain, Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort features 21 two-story cottages aligned in a crescent shape. The buildings have colorful stones covered in climbing vines and flowers, the unusual-looking roofs form sweeping violet arcs over the structures.

Each cottage in Sopa Lodge Naivasha has two rooms per floor. Bottom floor rooms have two queen-sized beds and include a lavishly furnished living room which opens onto the gardens. Top floor rooms have a single king-sized bed and a furnished balcony with wrought iron railings. Each room has its own fully-equipped private bathroom.

When you are not enjoying the comforts of your cottage, you are welcome to have a drink or bite to eat in the huge dining annex with an outdoor patio, poolside restaurant or one of the two bars. Or opt for extra relaxation in the in-house health spa; one of the few Spas in Lake Naivasha.

Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge Room Types

The exterior walls of the cottages have stone walls giving it character and creepers and bougainvillea’s add a lot of colour. The same stone work is carried into the rooms, and is the exterior bathroom wall. The banister going up the top floor is wrought iron as well and the same creepers and bougainvillea’s are entwined around them.

Sopa Lodge double storey guest cottages with their ingeniously designed roofs gently sweep away from one side of the main building to form a crescent which leads towards the lake shore. While the upstairs guest rooms have a single king size bed and the downstairs ones have two queen size beds, both have one thing in common and that is an extraordinary amount of space as well as lavishly appointed bathrooms.
