It was one of the best places I've ever visited, and I have to tell you guys it was wonderful time. When I saw that fairy-tale path leading to the entrance of the hotel I've just fall in love with the style, nature and calmness of this area. There are 40+ rooms, three floors and really amazing restaurant and bar... More

Nothing but praise, wish I could have stayed longer than just 1 night. First of all, the building is impressive, authentic and has even saved trees by incorporating them in the framework. Though the majority of the lodge is authentic, the bathroom is suddenly modern and very pleasant (hot rain shower). Then the direct surroundings are equally impressive. No matter... More

We had gone for a game drive with my sister and nieces, after the drive we went to the hotel for a drink. The hotel is built within a game reserve and merges with the environment around it. The staff were friendly and welcoming especially Seth who gives services with a smile. The price of drinks was affordable and pocket... More

The reception we received was not great and the hotel doesn't look like a great place from the outside but we were pleasantly surprised once we got in. The Restaurant has a great view of the pond and gives a nice "wild" feel. The food was great and the rooms are comfy and nice. The only downside of the rooms,... More

Went here for some lunch and afternoon rest while safaring the Shimba Hills national park. The wooden complex resembles a giant tree house and is well worth a visit just to experience it and walk around the surroundings. The set lunch menu (consistng of three dishes) was ok but not excellent, the staff is friendly and professional. Warmly recommend to... More
