Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort
Overview
Set in 150 acres of grassland studded with Acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to our resident giraffe, waterbuck and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos when they leave the lake every night to come and trim the grass on our expansive lawns.
These amazing resort has two swimming pools with a children's section and a pool complex with its bar, snack kitchen, pizzeria and health spa; tennis court; two conference halls with their four differently sized meeting areas.

Accommodation
21 cottages built in a crescent shape, and each has 4 rooms, 2 on the ground and 2 at the top, which totals to 84 rooms.
2 of these rooms are suitable for the physically challenged.
6 of the 21 cottages have inter-connecting rooms on the ground floor.
Our 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.
Ground floor rooms have 2 queen size beds and a sunken living room at the front which opens out on to the beautifully manicured lawns. They also have sunken bath tubs and bidets.
Top floor rooms have 1 king size bed and in front of it a balcony which has a beautifully designed wrought iron railing and furniture to match. This faces the lawns as well. The bathrooms have shower cubicles and bidets.
All rooms have large frontal windows; televisions; mini-bars; telephones; electronic safes; tea and coffee making facilities; and spacious, open air verandas.
Dining & Bars
A section of the circular lounge roof gently curves away to shelter the dining room with its huge chandeliers and a large, centrally located fireplace. The buffet area is located to one side of this in a large annex with a spectacular, red granito-topped live cooking area, and the excellent food ranges between Continental, Swahili (Kenya Coast), and Mediterranean cuisines, often with a deliciously subtle fusion of all three disciplines. These are accompanied by a selection of home baked breads, and garden fresh fruits and vegetables.
The dining room also has a large, outdoor patio with umbrella-shaded tables for those who wish to enjoy an open air meal during the day, or during our often warm and balmy evenings.
Bars: The lounge area in the main public area building is split into upper and lower levels and the main bar is located between these. With its entire dark timber panel finish, cozy ambience, romantically subtle concealed lighting and high, upholstered bar stools, it would have once been the perfect setting for a scene from one of Dirk Bogarde's movies.
By way of a total contrast, the pool bar is located in the roofed but open sided area between the swimming pool and the tennis court.
Swimming Pool: The swimming pool is always a favourite spot for kids because of its open sided snack restaurant which fills them up with pizzas, burgers, hot dogs, toasted sandwiches and, of course, French fries. However we also have an a la carte menu here, and we use this area for private dinner parties.
