We stayed here on our way to and from Kenya on safari. We were pleasantly surprised by the decor and feel of the beautiful room. The only thing we weren't happy about were the amount of mosquitos present in our room, which we spent over an hour killing with bug spray or splatting them on walls or between hands. The other concern was the temperature of the room when we went to bed - we turned on the air con after we both woke up 2 hours after we went to bed soaked and sweating - the air con did not cool down the room enough so we did not sleep well before our early morning flight.
After our 7 day safari we stayed once again and both enjoyed swedish massages and LONG hot showers after not having them for a week!! Then dinner was great with a repeat of my short rib order which was not a disappointment.
Our room air con was better this time thanks to the butler service fixing it and the mozzies a bit less frequent in our room. Breakfast was very pleasant and the staff of the gift shop arranged to have the correct size of sandal for me before we left for our flight home. We were disappointed that we could not go to the elephant orphanage or visit the Karen Blixen home as we did not have time before our flight left for Abu Dhabi.
Beautiful decor - so much so that we took lots of pics to use to choose our furniture at home!
Very pleasant experience and would recommend and stay again if we had the chance.
