Our family stayed here for 2 nights in July having booked at the last minute as a stopover on our way to Mombasa, we were so glad we chose this hotel. It was a great place to stay at a very reasonable price for Nairobi. The hotel is much nicer than your typical city hotel and it is located very near Nairobi National park and the attractions near there e.g. Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe centre. The restaurant is a beautiful huge thatched building and the rooms are built around it and there is a small swimming pool. The rooms are simply furnished but have mossie nets and a bathroom. The owners son was our driver for the day and he took us to see see the sights. He was very reasonably priced and a good source of knowledge. We ate at the restaurant in the evening, it is an Indian menu and the food was delicious. The staff are all very friendly and Charles our waiter was lovely. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a typically Kenyan experience.
- 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
