My tour group organized one night at this hotel before heading to the Maasai Mara and it was a fantastic start to the trip. The grounds and cottages are quaint and pristinely kept. You can feel yourself distress as soon as you walk on the property. The staff are very friendly and helpful and make sure to address you by name. The rooms are huge and beautiful - very spa-like. Would definitely stay here in the future.

The cottages are located in the midst of one of the oldest formal gardens in Kenya which have huge jacaranda, candelabra, cactus, bottlebrush, and other trees. Over 200 types of flowers bloom through the year and numerous bird feeders attract hundreds of varieties of birds. ... more less
