PHOTO TOUR OF A REFURBED STUDIO AT KIDANI VILLAGE
Kidani Village has four room types–Studios, One Bedroom Villas, Two Bedroom Villas, and Grand Villas.
In some two Bedroom Villas, the Studio is the second bedroom. These are called “lock-offs.” In others, built from the start as Two Bedroom Villas, and called “dedicated,” the second bedroom is a little different than a Studio. In these,
- The kitchenette is replaced with a second closet, and the wardrobe is replaced with a storage bench
- There’s no entry to the outside hall from the second bedroom
- Instead of a queen and a fold out couch, you get two queens
All Kidani rooms are seeing a minor refurb–this is expected to be completed in early 2017. I stayed in refurbed Studios twice in later 2016, and the images of this photo tour are from those visits.
You enter a Studio from the hall or, if in a lock-off, either from the hall or from a door near the connecting One Bedroom Villa’s kitchen.
The entry from the hall.
One side of the entry has a mini-kitchen and a small closet.
The mini kitchen has a coffee maker, toaster, microwave and mini-fridge.
The supplies that come with it.
The mini fridge.
The small closet–there’s another clothes storage space in a wardrobe in the main part of the room.
Across the hall you’ll find the divided bath, with the sink…
…and tub/shower on one side…
…and a toilet in its own space on the other. I think a better way to have divided this bath would have been to have put the tub and the toilet into their own private space, keeping only the sink in the other space.
Deeper in the room you’ll find on one side a queen and a fold-out sofa.

This side from the back.
Between the bed and sofa is this small bedside table, with a bit of storage and also added power points.
The sofa folds out into a bed which I measured as 60 inches wide by 79 inches long. The cushion is only around three inches deep, so I would not plan to sleep adults or larger kids on it.
The coffee table is split, making its parts easier to move when you need to unfold the bed, and I suppose also more flexible.
The other side of the room has a wardrobe, TV/dresser combo, and table and chairs.
This side from the back.
The wardrobe, when combined with the small entry closet, creates plenty of hanging room.
A closer look at the dresser/TV combo.
The dresser has plenty of storage for the four people this space fits…
…and also has two sets of added power points, left and right.
The last furnishing on this side is a table and chairs.
Each bay at Kidani Village has access to a balcony–given how much fun it is to watch the animals in the savannas from the balconies, this is a great feature.
