My wife and I stayed at Sosa cottages for 4 nights during the month of April. The setting was good: clean and well kept lawns, professional staff, and good service. The rooms were clean but could do with some updates. For example, a curtain around the shower would be useful to prevent water from spilling all over the place. Also,... More

I had an opportunity to to spend three months at sosa cottages and I must say the experience was simply wonderful. From the friendly staff, to the wonderful accommodation and excellent meals. I would recommend the place to anyone whether for a a short or long stay as their rates are also the best in town Christine

The Sosa Cottages place is in a 5star environmental setting. The place is highly regarded due to its facilities, location and natural settings. Lake Victoria is viewed at the horizon with its spectacular views at sunset. Highly recommended to travel from Kisumu and spend the night. The environment is totaly natural with lots of bird watching , close to Kisumu... More

This is a worthy place to visit. Very serene and flesh air. The paths well maintained, the staff are very polite, welcoming and concerned. If you want to swim no swimming pool hope the management will work on that.

I had the pleasure of visiting Sosa with some friends and found it a truly wonderful place. Firstly, it is an incredibly beautiful place. You feel from the moment you arrive that you are in a relaxing and tranquil place. The plants and pathways are elegant and the cottages are private. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. They are... More

First of all the driveway up to... More

The Sosa Cottages are truly an oasis of tranquilly in Western Province, Kenya. Driving in Western Kenya can be tough and dusty. Once you step off the parking lot of the Sosa, which is clearly under construction, you are immediately charmed by a lush compound of unexpected calm and order. The grass is cut and the hedges are trimmed. Here... More

I've been to Sosa many times, each time what strikes me is the beauty of the place. First thing that appealed to me was the colors. From the minute you enter you're affronted by the kaleidoscope of colors from the multitude of flowers lining the paths in gregarious bunches, the architecture with its maroon, cream, and charcoal stature; the perennial...

Stayed here in August 2011. Left after one night, were booked, prepaid for two nights. Three cottages. The dinner we were served was completely inedible. The manager agreed. We had no water in any of our rooms the night we were there. We could not shower, wash our hands, or flush the toilets. We had employees going in and out... More
