There’s nothing more fulfilling than discovering beautiful, elegant, luxurious gems in your own country. Absolutely nothing! So you can imagine my excitement a few weeks back when I had the pleasure of visiting one of such gems that I had no idea existed. I’m talking about The SHAZA Club.
A beautiful place, authentic experience, luxurious accommodation coupled with state of the art amenities on the shores of the beautiful ocean…Yes Please!
We all know that Mombasa is one of Kenya’s beloved cities. The city of white sandy beaches, palm trees, clear blue skies and waters where spectacular sunrises and colorful sunsets are sights to behold and where any chance to visit is never passed up. Which better place to have your tastefully built membership only club located?
The Shaza club which is situated along Shanzu beach in the Northern Coast of Mombasa recently launched as an exclusive membership only club. I was lucky to get an invite to attend the dinner launch which saw me spend a weekend at the beautiful private property.
Membership of the club offers you the privilege of discretionary access to a place that you can go to whenever you like.
The Shaza club tries to redefine what it is to be at the forefront of hospitality. Truly stunning both by day and by night. While your days at the Shaza could be spent outdoors swimming or hanging out by the pool or even indoors opting to stay away from the sun, the nights could be spent at any one of the various hang out joints within the property. The night air both warm and breezy will help you wind down your day with the therapeutic yet peaceful sound of the ocean. Since Shaza sits on a private property without lights distracting the night sky, your thoughts can easily disappear into the beauty of nature with stars carpeting the sky.
What on earth could beat waking up to those beautiful sunrises and the clearest and bluest of skies? The strategically built executive suites at the Shaza have the most magical views of the grand, endless ocean.
From the Arabic Swahili architecture (synonymous with authentic Kenyan Coastal towns) to lovely, spacious interiors full of light and stunning views courtesy of the floor to ceiling windows, to spacious balconies with views of the stunning ocean which helps clear and refresh your mind naturally, nothing has been left to chance when it comes to the Shaza architecture.
The Shaza Club has quite a range of amenities starting with a variety of suites which include Penthouses, 2-bedroom units and executive 3-bedroom Suites which can accommodate up to 6 guests and are tastefully fitted and lavishly furnished with a large sea-facing balcony to choose from.
The deluxe suites are complimented by restaurants, lounges, conference rooms and business centre, wellness centre (Gym), 3 resort-style pools, a pool deck and pool bar and a private cinema which all contribute in giving members an authentic experience. Also, whether you are looking for that elegant space to hold your event or just to consume spacious outdoor facilities to cater for your private functions, the club offers tailor made packages complete with dedicated staff at hand.
Simply put, the Shaza will offer you an escape where your entire family can enjoy together or independently.
Corporate members are catered to as well. There is a level of flexibility for this category of members. The Club’s membership designees may be changed or added to, so your company’s new directors, clients or staff can use the Club.
How Shaza club membership works
If accessible luxury is the name of your game then The Shaza club will revolutionize your experience.
Individual and Corporate memberships are available and membership is exclusive to a limited number of people at a one-off consideration for life.
Once you become a member at the Shaza, you get your own keys to the Club to do as you please. The Club is ideal for entertaining as well as a place to escape for weekends and to stay on business while in Mombasa.
How to become a member
For those with a taste of the finer things in life and once in a while need those quick getaways or need to find somewhere fitting to enjoy with the family on those long weekends, the Shaza membership is for you.
You may request for your invitation to join the club and upon acceptance you will be required to pay a one-time fee to own a transferable membership at the Shaza Club.
Membership to the club simply means that you get a coastal address unmatched in stature. Membership at the club will offer you an escape and a place to entertain your guests. The keys are limited and are therefore held and traded between select individual and corporate members for the life of the club. Talk about being in good hands!
