We were on a business trip- team building. I almost gave up coz of the distance but alas! only to find a beautiful place up the hill. It was worth the distance anyway. .. I liked the rooms, well kept and furnished. I definitely enjoyed the breeze! However I didn't get to enjoy the meals especially dinner. For a big... More

We were two service providers that were booked in at the lodge and had a great experience. The food selection was really good and the service we received in the time spent was very attentive and friendly. The views are just spectacular.

Situated on the Great Rift Valley, the club not only has superb views, but also offers great hospitality from staff, which made our stay unbeatable! We stayed in one of the comfortable chalets, tucked away between Acacias and birdsong, which made "coming home" an experience we looked forward to at the end of a long business day. I was also...

We were 15 guys that stayed here. After a very bumpy and dusty drive to the Lodge (this is an understatement!!!), we arrived at about 8 pm. The friendly staff showed us our rooms. I was lucky enough to get a room with the most unreal view of the valley below. We enjoyed the swimming pool, the lovely and clean... More

I am not sure how many readers of my review would have seen the film ' a night at the museum' where the stuffed animals in the museum come to life at nighttime and pose a dangerous threat!

Dear Guest, We acknowledge the TripAdvisor posting above. The underlying problem with the solar water tank was resolved and a new system has been put in place. We have also taken the opportunity to re-evaluate the security guard patrol. As much as there was a guard on patrol, he was not in the vicinity of the room, hence the delayed... More

After a very bumpy and long ride along an extremely dusty road, I was slightly skeptical as we turned into the GRVL. Noting it's location away from the lake, I thought to myself, 'this place better be good.' Alas, as it turned out, I was not disappointed... As my visit was work-related, I cannot comment on the golf. However, the... More

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Great Rift Valley Lodge several time. This time though was special - I got a complementary nature walk (am a bird watcher) and branded tee shirt! The staff as usual were very friendly and helpful.

Nice place, local look, great services. Good place for a visitors of Naivashi lake, a golfers as well. Excelent kitchen, recommendation of a local red wine (Leleshva) from vineyards not far away from a hotel complex.

As I write this, I hope the road construction to the lodge is complete. However, once you get there, you wish to stay some more. The green sceneries are well kept and breathtaking views is what welcomes you. The staff are so warm and the cottages are awesome though the network is poor. You probably need to check on internet...
