Beautiful gardens and pool in a lovely spot on the edge of the lake, you can walk down there through the gardens to take a lake safari, amazing. Really well set up for young families with pool toys, a sandpit etc.... More

We stayed here just for one night on a tour with Mara Explorers. The room was lovely (although the mattress on the single bed was a bit hard and it got a bit cold in the night), the grounds are stunning and very tranquil. Dinner was lovely, the food was beautifully cooked and all the guests sit and eat together... More

Beautiful garden surrounding and inside the property,there is a trampoline and sand pit for young kids to enjoy. The food is basic, but extremely good. The only problem with this hotel is that there is no wifi for iphones and all electronic devices.

Dea is a Tanzanian lady whose late husband moved to Africa from Switzerland in his youth. He set up a seed business and over the years they built this stunning property on the shores of Lake Naivasha. Now she runs the place as a guesthouse, with one main building and two further cottages in the gardens. We were treated like... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Dea's Gardens in Naivasha after a safari trip with our family; we had 3 rooms, including the 2 very quaint cottages on the grounds. It was a lovely spot and the wonderful hostess, Dea, and her staff (Joseph in particular) made our stay perfect. We enjoyed the gardens, complete with hot tea and cake... More

I spent only one night at Dea's but it was a pleasant as it can get. Very homy, beautiful settings, kind staff and very good food! I find Dea's garden as a perfect alternative to overrated hotels and resorts within the area. I find Dea's garden a very good place/base for exploring the southern part of Lake Naivasha.

We were 2 families of 4 and everyone thought this was an incredible find. The kids enjoyed the pool, adults the gracious staff and everyone raved about the food. We did a boat tour nearby which was good if you like birding but just sitting in the gorgeous garden was great bird watching for the average person. Don't miss this... More

We stayed for two nights with my sisters family and my family. Right from the moment we stepped out of the car we were catered for in the best possible way. Dea and her staff were attentive and professional at all times. Dea herself dined with us every evening which was delightful, and they arranged for a babysitter for my... More
