Owned by Oserian one of the major flower exporters, this lodge provides quiet comfort in the bush. The evening meal was the best we had in Kenya, just perfect. We were keen to see the rose-growing operation, so were shown the demonstration greenhouse. It's an intriguing business both in scale and complexity, exporting fresh flowers around the world.

Chui lodge is a gorgeous small lodge nestled in the parks in Naivasha. It is very intimate very exceptional customer service. The decor is beautiful and unique with African artifacts. The food is unbelievably good and gourmet. Michellin star quality! Great game drives in the park with wonderful and knowledgable guides. Chui lodge is definately worth the visit!

The accommodation is just amazing, very spacious cottages with private fireplace, huge bed, fantastic bathroom. And the food...heavenly, the best I had in Kenya. The... More

Brilliant weekend away. Fantastic location, food and hospitality. Chef Richard's food is 5 star. The safari's are great and our guide, Albert, was very knowledgeable. We even got a personal performance from George the lonesome lion. We'll definitely be back.

I stayed at Chui last weekend with three female friends. We came away for a relaxing break after a busy work period and we certainly were not disappointed! We were checked in smoothly and were very pleased with the two rooms: nice and spacious, plenty of hot water, lovely bath products and comfy beds. In the evening they come and... More

We had an excellent visit at chui lodge and Kiangazi house. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially our guide Chris and the operations manager Ms. Florence. The accommodations were fantastic and we enjoyed seeing a leopard and a thousand wildbeests , warthogs.We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and I can't recommend this property enough.

This hotel stands inside a private reserve, so you can expect the experience of getting to see animals from the close. The hotel is really nice and cozy. The service is excellent. But for me... the biggest highlight is the food! Wow... from breakfast to dinner, really superb! Tips: a) If you are resident you can get a special rate... More

As part of a three stop "safari" we stayed at Chui Lodge. From our arrival, met by the chef to select our lunch fare to our departure after an excellent champagne lunch by a flock of flamingos, all went well. The lodge provided a guide, James, who replaced our safari guide. We went on a boat ride past fabulous flamingo... More
