The best part about this hotel was the welcoming staff although all of Kenya is close to the same. This is a great place to launch one's view of Tsavo NP and enjoy the wilderness. Nice for my wife and I to have a double bed for a change.

A lovely quiet and relaxing place within the Tsavo East park at the Aruba Dam / waterholes where animals often stop by to drink. Very courteous and helpful staff; all made my stay good and memorable. Happy to have stopped by. A good destination; no doubt.

Excellent lodge in the middle of the Tsavo with waterholes around the hotel, so the animals come to you. The accomodation and service provided was excellent and the place is very peaceful. it's a good place to visit for everyone

i travelled with african safari destinations as my preferred travel operator. The lodge had very clean rooms with necessary amenities apart from kettle tea/coffee which would be a +++ and I suggest washrooms be equipped with bidet showers. Very courteous and smiling helpful staff starting from the gate, cleaners, waiters, chef Wanga and assistants, reception and manager. it was good... More

The hotel is very comfortable and the food is excellent. I understand there is normally a buffet but because we visited when there were very few guests, we were asked to order off a table d'hôte menu. It was amazing how well the food was cooked and presented. It could have done a Nairobi hotel proud- even if you didn't... More

We stayed at Ashnil Aruba Lodge on our way to coast with Dawn 2 Dusk safaris. Once we left Mombasa road, the road was dusty! Aside from the dust we enjoyed the scenery and spotting animals. We arrived at the lodge just in time for lunch. The food was a la carte and delicious. Some of the best food we... More

We had a great time here. It was warm and we missed air condition in our room. But it made us lay awake and listen to the lions and elephants, and that was also an experience. Service was amazing. Staff treating us like queens. Food was great. Scenery was indescribable. We were amazed, and we will never forget.
