The Lion in the Sun was the famous Malindi dwelling of Flavio Briatore, where he was usual to accommodate friends, sport champions and known western personalities, now he has preferred to turn it into an exclusive Relais of relaxing and well-being.  The resort is made up of 16 large and luxurious suites distributed in 4 splendid villas dipped in a beautiful tropical garden overlooking the sea, interrupted with four swimming pools, where the hosts can enjoy the principle privacy and more than 60 staff in order to satisfy every wishes and personal desires.  The rooms are furnished in various traditional styles and each with its own personality in order to transmit emotions and feelings.


In collaboration with Henri Chenot he has created a SPA where the hosts can daily have the pleasure to receive aesthetic or thalassic therapy treatments.  The Thala SPA modern scientific acquaintances of the western medicine with the millenarian’s traditions of the Chinese medicine based on the energetic channels and the equilibriums of man conceived like unit between body, psyche and emotional sphere. The bad habits of life, wrong feeding, stress, generate one lack of equilibrium between mind, unconscious and physical body. And it is just on this equilibrium that the philosophy of Lion in the Sun Resort is based.  They have imported modern equipments for thalassotherapy and selected highly specialized staff to offer very efficacious and unforgettable treatments plunge into an oasis of peace near the Indian Ocean and to the borders of the infinite African extensions.

There is no better way to enjoy the African beauty and the splendor Kenya has to offer ether than to indulge ‘a little’ after that awesome wild safari experience. So don’t forget to ask your local therapist whether you could purchase a bottle or two of that wonder African therapy herb to try it elsewhere or everywhere.
