My husband and I spent two nights at the Olare Mara Kempinski. It was an amazing experience. It could not be better located, right in the heart of the Mara conservancy. Our tent was beautiful and luxurious; it was just a tent in name, better than many 5 star hotel rooms I have stayed in. The staff are incredible, friendly, attentive and taking care of all our needs. The Manager Peter and Chef Santosh made us feel right at home by providing us with food which were not only tastefully prepared but beautifully served. The massages that we got in the privacy of our huge tent was fabulous.
Our guide, Rafael took great care of us, making sure that we got to have the best game drives ever! Although, it is a fairly new Kempinski property (taken over in January 2013), the location, the facilities and the service makes it a true winner. Our only recommendations would be to expand the choices offered for lunch and dinner as the main course was limited to just one choice; increasing the voltage of the lights in the room so that one can read; and installing solar heaters to heat the pool so that one can enjoy the beautiful pool and poolside bar. All in all, it was one of the best vacations we have taken.
