As part of its commitment to rejuvenating mind, body and soul, JW Marriot Masai Mara has become more inclusive with the launch of a Kosher kitchen at its Baraka Lodges in Kenya.

According to the safari luxury lodge, the launch of its kitchen comes in response to Kosher dietary practices gaining popularity in the hospitality industry, and an increased demand from Jewish and health-conscious consumers.

The hotel group said that its adherence to kosher standards aligned with ethical and sustainable food sourcing, and appealing to an ever-growing broader customer base.

“We are proud to announce that Baraka Lodges Ltd T/A JW Marriott Masai Mara has associated with Kosher Certified South Africa (KCSA) to introduce ‘Kosher cuisine’ for our special guests whose tradition is of utmost importance even while on safari,“ said the hotel group.

The luxury hotel said that under the leadership of Rabbi Avigdor Bokow and his team, Velvy Bokow and Aharon Bogatie with their extensive experience, provided guidance and introduced a pool of Mashgichim for Kosher clients globally.

“Kosher groups whether they are a group of generational families or friends for celebrations or to experience safaris are welcome to JW Marriott Masai Mara with peace of mind.

“Our special Kosher Kitchen stands as a testament to our dedication to cater to the unique preferences and dietary requirements of our esteemed Kosher guests.

“Rooted in rich traditions and meticulous attention to detail, our Kosher offerings seamlessly integrate with our lodge's renowned commitment to rejuvenating your mind, body and soul,” said JW Marriot Masai Mara.
