Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge is located on the southern shore of Lake Naivasha. The lodge is part of Sopa Lodges. It is set on 150 acres characterized by acacia bushes and trees. Animals such as giraffes, waterbucks, Vervet and Colobus monkeys, and hippos roam the lodge making for an authentic wilderness experience whilst enjoying all the comforts a modern lodge has to offer.
The lodge was designed with the preservation of nature in mind. Most buildings were built around the trees and bushes instead of clearing such flora. This led to unique designs for the buildings as well as various amenities being spread out in patches across the 55 acres.
Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge has 21 cottages with each having 2 ground floor rooms and 2 upper floor rooms adding up to 84 rooms. 6 of the 21 cottages have interconnecting rooms which makes them ideal for families. 2 of the rooms are wheelchair accessible. The rooms have either king-size or queen-size beds. Stone walls with creepers and bougainvilleas are quintessential to the design of the cottages.
All rooms have large frontal windows, TVs, mini-bars, hairdryers, telephones, electronic safes, tea and coffee making facilities, and spacious, open-air verandas. Some rooms have sunken bathtubs.
The Main Lounge Area
This area is like the centerpiece in a chic room. The lounge area is a circular split-layered structure and has a garden that is open to the sky in the middle. One end has a 50s-style wood-paneled bar.
A section of the circular roof curves out to shelter the main dining area which is adorned with chandeliers that complement the central fireplace. The red granito-topped live cooking area signals the buffet area where Continental, Swahili, and Mediterranean cuisines are served. Baked breads serve as accompaniments. There is also an outdoor patio with shaded tables for an open-air dining experience.
The Swimming Pool
The swimming pool area is especially fun for kids who can splash about in the water and replenish those lost calories in the open-sided snack restaurant serving everything from pizzas, to burgers and hotdogs. The snack restaurant also has an a la carte menu. There is a main swimming pool and a kids’ pool as well. A few other amenities, services, and activities at Lake Naivasha Sopa Lodge include:
