I take it i went there on a bad week. There were many organizations having conferences there, which meant the whole hotel was fully booked, translated in the slowest WIFI, slow service at the restaurant and the last to arrive were put in temporary structures for the night, ended up staying there the entire trip. That being said, the rooms... More

the reception was good but slow, they carried our luggage and gave us a welcome drink. (box juice in a glass :) ) I loved the room decor: loads of wrought iron furniture and huge windows letting in light from dawn to dusk. I also loved the size of the bathroom and I had 2 towels and sandals that were... More

Went on a business trip but enjoyed the stay. A wonderful place for a business trip or leisure. Its away from all the Nairobi traffic. Good food and good staff. The rooms are clean. The hotel does not have a bar! You just come out of the hotel, and its a paradise of wild life

I spent the Easter weekend with my family. Lukenya has a very serene and homely environment. It is difficult to believe such a place exists 40 minutes away from the City! Staff were generally kind, friendly and generally helpful. Accommodation is varied ranging from basic suites to modern rooms. Meals (local cuisine )were fresh and quite tasty. The staff appeared...

I was only at Lukenya Getaway for a one-day conference. So I cannot comment on their rooms. They have great conferencing facilities and spacious grounds for team retreats. They have a large pool to cool off from the Athi River heat. Wifi is free and good. They have ample parking. One thing I would suggest is that the hotel needs... More

As its name suggests, this place is a real getaway. Located in a serene environment three kilometers off Nairobi-Mombasa Highway and around 40 kilometers from Nairobi, you really feel off the hustles and bustles of the city. If you are lucky, you may view zebras, gazelles and giraffes as you drive to the hotel from the Highway. I ahve stayed... More

I think I've stayed at Lukenya more than 6 times. Every time I go I know I'll be back. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious. Here are a few things you should know: 1. They have mosquito nets, so you don't need to bring one. 2. They have a pool with a kids pool... More

Located 4.7Km off of Nairobi Mombasa road on the same road to Daystar University. Excellent environment for retreats, personal or corporate. You can also bring the family out here for a day trip away from the city. The place has grounds for team building activities, meeting halls that can take up large numbers. A swimming pool which is ideal for... More
