          Hello, Are you still open? I've been trying to contact you (email via the sanctuaryretreats website, calls to your nearest call center in Kenya), but I receive no answer at all (my phone calls all get directed and then terminated after a few rings, my email only ever got a standard "we'll get back to you soon" answer). I can't find any number to reach you directly either... That sounds weird for a Sanctuary Retreats Lodge. Our friends have already ended up booking another lodge but we were really looking forward to coming to your place!
