A big thanks to the management for helping host a wonderful birthday for our son, the main course food was amazing especially the griled chicken, we were served promptly, quality service, and great cup cakes for our guests as deserts.

The hotel has nice rooms facing the pool but too expensive. If you are planning to visit there then arm yourself with nearly everything starting from soap to pair of slippers. They have one iron box so if you are lucky to get it, mind your neighbor. If you like your dinner in the room, don't think of Osoita. Luckily...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Osoita Lodge is named after the Maasai word 'Soito' meaning 'Stones'. Osoita Lodge was designed and built by the owners themselves and that personalized touch is evident all across the lodge. All raw materials used in construction and furniture were extracted from the very ground where Osoita Lodge stands today. Osoita Lodge is located in Ongata Rongai, (also locally known as Rongai or simply 'Rongaa'). Rongai falls in the Olekassasi township which is a settlement in Kenya's Kajiado County, located between the Kaputiei plains and the Western slopes of the Ngong hills. Osoita is conveniently adjacent to the Nairobi National Park plus close to other major tourist attractions around Nairobi. Osoita's design is based on a traditional setup but with a modern twist. The lodge sports makuti thatching and makes use of traditional building materials and beautiful rustic furniture that brings out an authentic African touch. The lodge is setup within a tranquil, lush green environment with the seasonal River Kandisi running at the very edge of the lodge. A picturesque, rugged typography with a cool, homely feel characterizes the surrounding and ambience at Osoita Lodge. Osoita Lodge has a total of 27 rooms. 8 Balcony rooms on the upper level overlook the swimming pool and 11 standard rooms all built with natural materials bringing out a rough, rustic exterior, whilst the interior finish is cozy and contains all the modern comforts you might need. In August 2014, we also opened our newest wing with 8 new rooms that stay true to the spirit of Osoita by fusing tradition with modernity. All our rooms are equipped with private bathrooms and toilets en-suite, digital safes, reading lamps, mosquito nets and free, strong WiFi Internet. ... more   less
