What better way to start and/or end a trip to Kenya than staying here. This lovingly restored period house in the hills near Konza is only an hour from Nairobi but you are transported to a blissful elegant retreat in the hills. Other reviews have said the same - the staff are unequalled in their attention to detail (fires in the bedrooms and hot waterbottles in the beds), their warmth and welcoming attitude, and in their professionalism and dedication to an extremely high level of service. We travelled in a party of three families (11 people, with children aged 11-17). Everyone of us felt special and well taken care of here. The food was outstanding and plentiful. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had the most wonderful time. Their special touches (we wont say here so it wont ruin the surprise!) were things one normally only sees in movies or romantic books. We are already thinking about when we could get back to Kenya and spend more time at this wonderful hotel. Well done Kiki and her whole team!
