Stayed here and enjoyed every minute of it. Beautiful views, exceptional service by beautiful people. I ate so much food and drinking dava's were priceless. I was surprised to see Roti and Indian lentils all over Kenya. This is one place I can't wait to return with my family and share experience with beautiful little ladies. I have nothing, but... More

Stayed here twice so far. The rooms were good, clean, spacious and well maintained. The best thing about the lodge is the views, the serenity and calm. It is truly a good place for one to disappear in, if you are looking for peace and quiet. Quite spectacular. The one thing i take exception with is the food. It was... More

We visited a couple of years ago. Lovely rooms on stilted building built over the escarpment. Lovely food with several options served in a semi open building. Rooms are lovely and comfortable. Gardens well tended with lots of birds. The golf course includes Zebras!

I traveled with a large group for a conference and although the trip up the hill was harrowing, we were met with wonderful staff, great food and service, and a glimpse of wonderful Kenyan hospitality. We took a wonderful boat trip on Lake Naivasha with our guide William. Simon at the front desk was very helpful.

We recently stayed at this resort for 3 nights. Getting to the resort was a challenge as the road is under construction and much bumpier than other dirt roads in Kenya (most roads are dirt except for the main highways). This drive reminds you of the definition of dusty travel. The grounds are beautifully kept and the birds are wonderful.... More

The rooms have no windows or aircon system stuffing and no hot water no internet and nonchalant staff! The place has no back up generator and no phone in room to call reception either. Never saw or met a single manger and no bothered with you!

I recently had the privilege to stay at the Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort and what a treat it was! The road from the main Nairobi-Nakuru highway was rather harrowing in sections- although it was being graded at the time- hope they go the whole hog and pave it as well!- but that was soon forgotten when we...

The road to the resort is really bumpy but since we were prepared for it from the trip advisor reviews we took it in our stride. The road is however under construction and I presume in a few months time it will be a great ride. On arrival the team was expecting us and we were quickly ushered to our... More
