As a mother of 3 young kids, lie-ins are a long distant memory to me. Hence my surprise and delight when I looked at the clock and it was 9.30!! The last 2 days of travelling had evidently left me more tired than I realized…either that or the incredibly comfy beds & lovely dark, peaceful room sent me into a sleepy coma!
After a healthy breakfast of Bircher muesli & fresh fruit, Markus gave me a proper site inspection of the property.
I was delighted to see how much the vegetation had grown up since my last visit, 14 months ago. The gardens were looking amazing and offer real privacy between the villas.
The two bedroom villas are exactly the same design as the one bedroom villas but with an identical bedroom on the first floor instead of a sun deck which the one bedroom villas have.
The resort herb and vegie garden provides the kitchen with an endless source of delicious produce. Each morning the chef comes into the garden and choose what he is going to include in the day’s meals.
After a lunch of prawn Caesar salad, I had my first ever attempt at Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) ….it was fab!My instructor was Daudi, the coolest Masai I have met. I mastered the art of going with the current but against it proved slightly more problematic!
I then had to smarten myself up for the Manager’s cocktail drinks reception, which are held twice a week at 7pm. As the villas at ZWS are so spacious, the resort often feels empty even when its full so these drinks receptions are a nice way of getting the guests to meet one another. (if they wish)
After a delicious dinner of tuna carpaccio & seafood thermador, it was time to retire and get some rest before another morning of activities.
