The Sopa Naivasha Resort is a fantastic place. The staff are friendly, the food is good but the rooms are a little tired and could do with some sprucing up. Our favourite was watching the wildlife grazing on the lawn in the evenings! There is free wifi although it may not get to your room - we were in 42... More

The lodge seems to be losing its charm. The rooms are very sub standard. Lighting is very poor and so is the beddings. For the rate it demands the expectations were slightly more. The shower is not so great. On the positive note. The location is amazing, very quiet and peaceful, breakfast was great and the chef is ready to... More

We stayed one night at the Sopa Resort on the advise of our safari guide. We were pleasantly surprised. Not only did they have spacious accommodations, the view was amazing. At night they have lights on and you can watch the animals grazing. We saw water buck, zebras and a hippo. During the day we saw an incredible array of... More

In October 2014, myself, three colleagues from the UK and 3 kenyan colleagues stayed at the hotel for 6 weeks. This was a particularly long stay as most guests only stay one or two nights as part of a safari stop over. We were there as we were working in a town nearby and not staying for pleasure. On our...

During our trip to Kenya, this lodge by far had the nicest rooms. They were very modern and absolutely enormous. The entire resort looks tropical, and the pool is gorgeous. The restaurant is also beautiful and had great food. At night many animals including giraffes, zebras, and hippos come out to graze on the lawn - you can see them... More

I must admit when my booking agent recommended the lake Naivasha Sopa Resort, I was a bit skeptical but she insisted. The resort turned out to a great selection by my agent and I will be going back soon. From the entrance, we were welcomed by wildlife grazing on the Hotel grounds. The welcome by the staff was great and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, and it. The large rooms are located in houses in the parc, with 4 rooms in each house. On the way to the main Building don't be surprised to se girafs crossing you way, buffalloes and antilopes near by, and at night the hippos come to eat on the lawn in front of the... More

My favorite spot in Naivasha. Huge rooms, nice bathrooms. The grounds are amazing, and what could be better than seeing giraffes strolling by in the morning, or hearing hippos graze at night? Food is great, and the service is excellent. Nice pool. Drinks are somewhat overpriced.
