The property is wonderful, gives you an experience to remember for a long time. The rooms are excellent, the cottages magnificent, the scenery a site to behold. The service was good and the food was yummy.Definitely the best hotel in Naivasha.

The property and location is awesome...huge, which brings its own challenge. Rooms are far with poor transportation...Rooms design doesn't give you much of privacy. What also inconvenienced us was that entry of the rooms is not from road side but from behind and noise proofing not good. resort itself is nice with staff courteous.

We were greeted at reception and offered orange juice and warm towels. Room was very nice with a balcony. Dinner was ok and extremely slow. It took over two hours to eat. We ended up leaving before desert. We had a long drive and were only there for one night and the last thing we wanted was to be at... More

This place is terrible!!! Just got back today after spending 2 nights with a group of 30 people. Upon arrivals our house was not ready! Had to run around asking for room keys. Checked into the house and rooms and bathrooms were not cleaned. We asked the staff to clean but was a disappointment. Staff are not bothered! Kitchen fridge,... More

Dear Guest, We have taken note of the above comment. It is unfortunate that being in a group occupying several chalets, the keys to one whose cleaning was not complete was still on course was included, hence the predicament. Our mode of operation is for the chalet to be declared clean and ready before access is given. We apologize for... More

I was there for one night, the last night of our 5 day safari. When we got there there was no one to welcome us or take our bags. When they finally did acknowledge us we were checked in and introduced to the person who would accompany us to the room. This person proceed to say he was "busy". After... More

I was among a large group when we visited, and we had a lot of fun! First and foremost the Lodge is on very beautiful grounds, in the bushes, where they strive to maintain the wilderness feel. Even though you will have to endure about 11KM of a dusty rough road from the main road to the destination, it will... More

My stay was great. It definitely took away all the fatigue and pressure and I feel rested. If you are looking to take time off from your busy schedule and give your mind a rest, this is definitely it. Their rates are also affordable.

This was my second visit in three years! Great place! Absolutely breathtaking scenery, manicured lawns, crisp air, and excellent running 'trails'. The conference facilities were excellent. Staff were helpful, courteous and motivated! We shared a holiday home with two colleagues, near Tausi house. It was too cold to savor the alluring pool. I must learn golf soon, to earn an... More

The Vistas stretch from the sparkling waters of Lake Naivasha to jogged volcanic crater of Mount Longonot and, beyond, the sloping shoulders of the Aberdare Mountains - Kenya's most important watershed. ... more   less
