Lodging options

Sandai offers different rooming options for your stay. From a single or double room in a large cottage to guestrooms offering more privacy — all rooms are as unique and special as we are. Due to these conditions, and each room being unique in design, lay out, and view there is specific pricing for each room. 

Please see below for photos and pricing. 

Option A: Punda Milia

The large cottage, Punda Milia, is a stand-alone self-catering cottage away from the main farmhouse. It’s a short walk across the farm that you can safely do at night. Punda Milia has 24 hours electricity due to solar panels.

Punda Milia offers four rooms and will host five people. It has a large open-plan living space with a fantastic open fireplace and a beautiful verandah from which you can watch the sunrise over Mt. Kenya. This cottage will also be one of our places for group sharing, talking and just enjoying each other’s company.

Below is a selection of Punda Milia images to give you a feel for this cozy cottage and its rooms.

If you want to come earlier or stay later for some extra exploring — let me know! I am happy to help you plan something fabulous:

A beach getaway at the palm-fringed beaches of the Kenyan coast? Perhaps a safari adventure in the famous Masai Mara? Or how about some beach time on the mystical spice island Zanzibar just off the Tanzanian coast?

Having lived and worked in East Africa and being a registered tour operator, I’ve all the on-the-ground knowledge and connections to help you organise your dream trip!

Cancellation Policy

  • Any cancellation made 60 or more days before the start date of the retreat (24th June 2023) will result in a loss of 50% of the trip price.
  • Any cancellations made 31-59 days before the start date of the retreat (24th June 2023) will result in a loss of 75% of the trip price.
  • Any cancellations made 30 days or less before the start date of the retreat (24th June 2023) or no-shows will result in a loss of 100% of the trip price.

 

I reserve the right to cancel the retreat if it is not meeting the minimum of 5 participants. You will be notified up to four weeks before the scheduled start time of the retreat. You will receive a FULL REFUND of your paid deposit. I also reserve the right to cancel the retreat due to the trip leader’s illness or unforeseen circumstances beyond my control. In such situations, you will be notified up to 48 hours before the scheduled start time of the retreat. If the retreat is cancelled, registered attendees will get a FULL REFUND of the amount paid. 

I reserve the right to determine if you are not a good fit for this trip after we had our chemistry check. If I do so, your deposit will be refunded in full).

It is strongly recommended to purchase comprehensive travel cancellation insurance and health insurance, including repatriation in case of accident, illness or death. Please ensure to protect yourself in case your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather or should an emergency occur, making you unable to travel. Credits will not be issued due to incoming flight delays and/or cancellations.

Should the exchange rate vary, the price is subject to change. You can cancel free of charge if the price increase is more than 10%. Any increases in park fees will be passed on to retreat participants.

COVID-19 Policy

In the event that Covid-19 protocols interfere (for example destination is under lockdown), the retreat will be rescheduled for a later date when travel is possible again. If this occurs, you’ll have the option to transfer all of your funds towards the future retreat dates or receive a full refund.

No refund is given if the participant contracted the virus and can’t attend the retreat, in which case, travel insurance would most likely cover any losses depending on the travel insurer’s policy. It is important to confirm with the travel insurance provider that Covid-19 related issues are covered and to what extent.

All COVID-19 entry requirements at time of travel are to be adhered to and will be communicated prior to start of retreat.
