SHOMPOLE- Great Rift Valley, Kenya
There are a few ways to tackle Kenya and we recommend integrating all of them for the ideal experience. Traditional Tribal via a visit with the Maasai, Rustic Rural in the form of an amazing safari expedition, and then Contemporary Conceptual (yes indeed) and the finest example of this unique new wave of Kenyan-chic is known as Shompole.

One of the most acclaimed lodges in Kenya, this unusually unique property sits discreetly in a private conservancy, and has been designed to harness the colors, textures and emotions of its natural surroundings. An understated yet overwhelmingly beautiful blend of white quartz, polished wood, pale thatch, smooth stone and a touch of African bush feel peacefully surround guests who wish to let the land lead them while on such a mystifying holiday.

Here, breakfast is most beautifully enjoyed on the plains or under the shade of a fig tree, dinner is taken by candlelight under the stars, and your most challenging choices each day revolve around whether to embark on a heart-stopping game drive, lazily drift down the river in a canoe, or indulge in a holistic “African Body Works” day of wellness designed to unravel the soul, de-stress, and enhance the full richness of life. Can you Kenya? Yeah, we think you can. www.shompole.com

TRIBE- VILLAGE MARKET HOTEL- Nairobi, Kenya
When you think Kenya, you think Maasai, you think Serengeti...but modern luxury? Well, we'd like you to think again. In a land where the contrasts are plenty, the Village Market Hotel is one of Nairobi's true standouts. Chic, sleek design, fusion cuisine, entirely diametrically opposed to anything you'll see anywhere else in this beautiful land. It's the perfect antidote for dusty treks through the bush, and since you've got to stop in Nairobi either before or after a safari, why not mix it up a bit and see something else that's completely unexpected. The hotel sits right in the heart of eclectic sophisticated yet rustic village-style surroindings - steps from shopping, museums, and everything else that you wouldn't expect in this intriguing city. It's beautiful proof that completely different scenarios can actually peacefully coexist. It's an one of the best example of  Exclusive Hotels
