This is the second time I have stayed at Lukenya Getaway. Our organization brought a team of 23 people and worked in the Nairobi slums during the day. Lukenya was so refreshing to come back to. They have a wonderful pool and excellent staff. Someone on our team got sick (from the hot weather) and they moved her to a... More

It's a long way from Nairobi and anything else so be sure you are happy just staying on site! Good place for a work retreat or workshop where you want to spend the whole time together. I have been here 3 times for international work conferences and it's a lovely location, nice rooms spread across the grounds - lots of... More

This facility is located away from all the noisy inconveniences like traffic and crowds. Natural environment and perfect for a quiet weekend away. Truly a "gateaway" Worth visiting again! And again!

Have been here twice in as many years for workshops. The rooms are basic but check most boxes. Everything is quite clean. There seems to be recurring issues with the shower heads, but it was manageable. There are lots of mosquitoes - but the rooms have mosquito nets and repellents plugged into the wall (two per room would be better).... More

I stayed in the hotel for a few days for a workshop. The hotel is located rather isolated. The conference facilites are good, though internet was rather slow (but it worked). There is no alcohol served in this place and for that you need to walk to a nice bar, some 10 mins away from the hotel. I wouldn't recommend... More

I was excited about my first trip to Africa. I had planned it months in advance. But upon arriving at this hotel, I was horrified. The rooms looked liked a scene from " Dracula ", and with all the mosquitoes there, it may as well have been. This hotel advertises having airconditioning, and a bar, and its supposed to be... More

I was in Kenya attending a business conference at this resort about 30 minutes drive from Kenyatta Airport, on the way to Mombasa. Nestled at the foot of Lukenya Hills, right at the Athi River plain.. The hotel has a large estate with a few blocks and some cottages in the shape of Maasai tent. Check in was swift. The... More
