Located in a pioneer farmhouse built in 1924, Entim Sidai Sanctuary and Wellness Spa is surrounded by 20 acres (8ha) of mature indigenous forest, vegetation and incredible bird life. Aside from an eclectic mix of treatments named after words and phrases from the Maasai culture, there’s a glass-walled nail studio in the middle of the forest.

The Javanese massage and facial also comes highly recommended for the weary traveller.
