    Richard Branson’s Award-Winning Kenyan Retreat

    From open bush BBQ’s and wild game safaris to champagne picnics and pure relaxation – the Mahali Mzuri is officially the best hotel in the world
    12 March, 2022

    At Blend Group we pride ourselves on working with the most luxury partners in the travel industry, in order to ensure we can provide the most exclusive, high-end and bespoke experiences possible for our clients. We therefore make it our aim to stay in-the-loop with regard to the most current, fashionable and world-class accommodations on offer.

    When it comes to luxury accommodations, a favourite of ours is the magnificent Mahali Mzuri – British billionaire Richard Branson’s Kenyan safari retreat. The retreat is located on a private 35,000-acre conservation area that was opened in 2006 and forms part of the Maasai Mara-Serengeti ecosystem and wildlife zone.

    Part of the Virgin Limited Edition collection, the 5-star Mahali Mzuri, which is Swahili for ‘beautiful place’, is a 12-tented luxury safari camp that is perched right among the action in the Kenyan Bush. From here you’re afforded a front-row seat for the annual Great Migration and the abundance of game and wildlife that can be seen year-round. Twice-daily safaris give guests the chance to see lions, wildebeest, elephants, giraffes, cheetahs and more, ensuring that a safari experience that is second-to-none is provided.

    It’s not just the access to wildlife that makes this accommodation so special, however, as guests are also given the chance to immerse themselves in local Maasai culture on community tours. And if it’s relaxation that’s required the hotel also offers rejuvenating spa treatments as well as a 12-meter infinity pool which is perfect for a leisurely dip. Additionally, at the centre of the camp is a large decked area, complete with a communal lounge and open fire place.

    With a maximum of 24 guests at any one time, the Mahali Mzuri is quintessentially exclusive meaning guests are guaranteed serenity, peace and quiet throughout a stay. It’s this element that is part of the reason that the accommodation has recently been ranked as the number one hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure magazine.

    This prestigious award takes into account, among other criteria; facilities, location and service and can be won by luxury accommodations of all kind. Scoring an impeccable 99.73%, Branson’s retreat deservedly came out on top this year.

    If you’d like to experience the best hotel in world during 2022, please get in touch with us here and we will work with you to put together a bespoke trip tailored exactly to your requirements.
