The standards and service were just as high as in 2012, quality of food exceptional, and cleanliness and maintenance of grounds perfect ................. and the weather could not be... More

All areas were kept very clean and the rooms are welcoming and personal. There's always plenty to do (if you want) from the hotel be it safari trips out or snorkelling, scuba diving... More

After visiting the Rift Valley and Masai Mara we spent 5 glorious days at Pinewood. What bliss. The setting is magical. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious... More
