Went with a group of friends. we were all coupling. the rooms are big but all have a second single bed, but you cannot have an extra guest. this simply wastres space in the room ... it would be easier if you just had a large room and 1 bed. the extra bed made the room feel so crowded. this...

Lake Naivasha Simba Lodge has an amazing location right next to the lake shore. We checked in late in the evening. The check in was quick and efficient. We went for a quick cup of tea before settling in the room. The rooms was great with a double bed and a single bed, a lounge with a tv, tea and... More

It was our first time at this hotel. We were blown away by the looks, the environment, the style and accommodation. Unfortunately, everything nice was spoilt by the way the people at the reception treated us, on checking out. Seems whatever was communicated on checking in, was not shared with the new shift who were at reception. The new shift,... More

Thank you Sammy for all your help during our visit to naivasha. A boat was recommended and actually turned out to be very enjoyable. This was our first time in kenya and naivasha made it very special. Look forward to staying with you real soon!

All in all a simply beautiful hotel, clean, good food, spacious, and well maintained hotel. Its right on the lake, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, plus its also children friendly, with a kids play area and a baby pool.

We visited this hotel for New Years celebration in December 2014. The food in the place is quite good and compared to other places nearby, they offered the best rate for this period and at the quality offered. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The sight of waterbuck outside one's window every morning is very special. They offer a... More

Had a enjoyable stay at this property I liked in-particular the fresh fruit left in the room in the afternoon and the helpful staff. Only issue not sure if it was only my room but the water smelt funny and quite over powering also this area of Kenya had issues with power and its kept going out every few hours... More

You have to be very critical to say anything negative about this place. A bath tub in the bathroom and better lighting would have been nice in this price range. There are waterbucks and zebra right outside your bedroom window but it is a very quiet place. You can walk around the grounds unescorted but watch out for the animal... More

Got bumped from Enashipai and found this a better value resort for business purposes. Without the extensive facilities of its neighbour, it excelled in terms of service, food and beverage and the wildlife outside bedroom window. A worthy back up.
