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

I like the location, away from hussle and bussle of city life, well maintained lawns, vast piece of land, i remember riding my bike all round for a whole hour. Incredible. My only concern is the phones in the rooms not working, considering the distance from the rooms to the reception, its good to have them working incase of emergencies.... More

I never thought there was a good place like that in Naivasha! The access road from Nairobi-Nakuru road is very rough....but i understood why....to give you a 'wild' countryside feeling before you get in the hotel. I noticed one can play golf or access your cottages as wild animals (zebras, antelops, dik-diks, peacocks,...) roamed close. Wonderful place...

This place is just great. This being my second time there, I would not hesitate to more than again get back! two reasons stand out for me really. One, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, they really do make one feel comfortable. Two, the way the entire architecture blends in, even complementing the nature (the natural environment) makes it... More

The room was great with an excellent balcony view of the valley. It has a sunken living room area, really nice bed and I liked everything there. The food was top notch as were the staff. this location was part of a great 11 day Kenya Gate 1 tour.

The access road to the lodge needs work. Once you get there it is an amazing experience with fabulous views, a world class golf course and friendly helpful staff. The food was excellent. Maybe a little variety could be added. With a live band at dinner providing fabulous entertainment. You can experience the wildlife with a game drive and occasionally... More

The place is amazingly beautiful but the staff need some lessons in customer service, especially the front desk staff. They may have been overwhelmed because of the huge numbers, though we would expect that the management would have planned for this, way in advance, considering the booking had been done over a month before. There was a huge mix up... 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
