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

Staff was excellent, and the food was fantastic, loved the chef's in the morning cooking eggs for everyone. Service was slow, but was worth the wait. Rooms were lovely, clean and the bathrooms were very nice also

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 long drive from the main road and I already knew it would be worth visiting the GRVL! I have not met such friendly and customer oriented staff; meeting me with a smile and loaded with 'please' and 'sorry' and 'thank you' and 'keep safe' with another smile. I thought i was the only one who noticed the courteous staff... More

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, beautiful, scenic, large villas. Homely and serene definitely going back for longer! Only downside is that the food could use a little of an upgrade(offer more variety and improve quality of breakfast cereal, fruits and yoghurt)

A fabulous resort with a great golf course, excellent accommodation food and service. Close to wildlife sanctuaries, a lake where you can go boating and visit 6 families of hippopotamus and thousands of birds. A Kenyan adventure not to be missed.

The Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort enjoys one of the most spectacular views in all of Africa. The lodge sits at about 7,000 feet, from which elevation it enjoys magnificent views to the west and east. 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
