I love Malu, we've been to stay there twice now and it is a wonderful escape from Nairobi, and attracts plenty of Nairobi families looking for a break. It is peaceful, quiet and the children love being able to walk around, feed the animals, milk the cows and swim in the hot spring pool.
My only complaint is that the prices seem to be creeping up fast, and what used to be an affordable weekend away is now becoming less so. I worry that Malu will start to lose business as it prices itself out of its market.
