World's first five-star bird’s nest

Guests at this bizarre suite might have to watch out for eagles swooping in and making themselves comfortable - because it resembles a giant bird's nest.   
The Nay Palad at Segera resort is built alongside a river teeming with wildlife and is in one of Kenya’s most popular safari locations - Laikipia. Perched above the ground overlooking endless  , the suite is billed as 'a new concept of nesting like a bird – above the ground, with literally a 360-degree view of the wilderness'. 


Built and designed from raw materials, it's comprised of farmed wood and tree branches that have been woven together by local community members. Thankfully, it also boasts an interior suite featuring all the amenities of a five-star hotel, such as a fully-equipped bathroom with solar-heated water and a flushing toilet.


Designed to sleep two guests, the space could also potentially host a small family – for example the parents may choose to sleep in the adjoining indoor shelter of the first floor, while the children enjoy the adventure of sleeping outside. 


The Bird Nest is a collaboration between Segera and Carolin Dekeyser, founder of NAY PALAD (creator of artisanal objects and magical destinations), both of whom envisioned a peaceful jewel at the very heart of the natural world. With architect Daniel Pouzet’s imaginative approach to design bringing their idea of a bird nest to life, they have created an inspiring living space unlike anything else in the world.



Fusing absolute luxury with environmentally friendly technology, Segera Retreat is a splash of green in a golden savannah. What once corralled cattle away from predators is now a lush botanical garden with mammoth indigenous euphorbia trees shading flowering pathways that link thatched elevated villas to pools, daybeds, bars and lounge areas. Understated elegance and quiet authenticity create a retreat that is utterly comfortable and effortlessly stylish. The co-existence of new and heritage buildings gives a modern twist to classics; the traditional Kenyan farmhouse has a dialogue with the new wine cellar tower; a zen-like courtyard is linked by natural elements and curved structures. Overall the feel is eclectic. A sense of a collector’s objet trouvé personalizes interiors, while significant artworks punctuate open spaces with drama. There is a sense of monumentality, of horse-worn wood, hand-smoothed stones, rock walls softened by fringes of twisted thatch roofs and light dripping through locally-made recycled glass chandeliers. - Sagera Retreat
