I had the good fortune to stay at Lantana for three weeks, about a year and a half ago. Those three weeks will always be among the most memorable, and cherished memories of my life.
From the tastefully appointed rooms of our penthouse, the sweeping views of the Indian Ocean, and the exquisitely manicured grounds, Lantana ranks among the most breathtaking properties one could ever hope to visit. Additionally, I cannot say enough about the courteous, helpful and efficient staff. From check in to check out, I was made to feel welcome, and cared for.
I have already written a separate review of Le Café at Lantana, and how much I enjoyed every meal I ate there, so I will only say that I look forward to some day returning to dine there again.
Thank you Jillian, and all of your wonderful staff for all of the fond memories. My boyfriend and I will see you again, the next time we are in beautiful Kenya.
