We held our daughter’s birthday party at Ulwazi Place on the 7th of August and it was just perfect!! They gave us excellent service, delicious food in plenty including the kiddies menu. As we waited for our guests to arrive they gave us play items that kept the kids engaged, not to mention the beautiful vast grounds where we thoroughly enjoyed having our games. Thank you so much Ulwazi staff for such a wonderful time that we all had, especially the birthday girl!! Definitely looking forward to coming back 🙏🏻

Beautiful hotel and restaurant but the staff, from the lady manager just roaming around at the bar area and happens to be super loud and gossiping with her team... I ordered breakfast which took over an hr to get ready apparently they forgot I was sitting here waiting for my meal. The chef even decides to prepare a meal that I had not ordered, reason being, the pancakes will take long to prepare (as if I was having a free meal smh) . The management should invest in customer service and hire competent staff and not a team just chilling at the bar area just gossiping and laughing as if its a market place.

I stayed here 2 nights on a cross country trek in Kenya 🇰🇪 and the entire staff was so welcoming that I immediately felt like family. We had an early safari so they accommodated us for breakfast and also helped our host set up a private dinner for my group. The room was so naturally cozy and the African art everywhere is amazing. Asante sana to my Kenyan fam 🖤

Very clean, friendly staff and great for weddings too. Some rooms showers and screens were not functional but no cause of alarm. They will sort you out! Rooms face different sides: some face countryside backyard others face the frontal side which is what I preferred

When you receive directions to Ulwazi, at some point you begin to believe that you are lost. And then, right there, it's magnificence hits you. It is an amazing place tucked far back on Peponi Road. Quiet, secluded and excellent suited for private events/functions. Loved the staff's attentiveness to detail and their versatility w.r.t. product offering. Will certainly be back.

Ulwazi felt like home! The studio is spacious. It comes with a full kitchen and balcony. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city which is great if you are looking for a clean, safe, quiet place to stay.
