The house and rooms are beautiful, the staff is friendly and service minded and the food is delicious. We don't eat meat, and the chef prepared wonderful fish dishes for us. The surroundings give peace to a stressed Nairobi soul. Great game drive with sun downer and a super bush walk.

We drove up here from Nairobi one evening recently and I was really intrigued to see what this property had to offer. The latter part of the journey was in the dark and I was pleased that our driver was used to negotiating the bumpy roads with many pot holes, the crazy traffic, sometimes with no lights, especially the cyclists...

I spend quite a lot of time at the rose farms around the Naivasha lake. Kiangazi is my favourite place around the lake. High standard rooms and hosting and the most fantastic view of the lake with wild animals living in the premises. Food is a bit presumptuous (over styled 5 course meal with too much cutlery) but not more...

Kiangazi House is small, quaint and has excellent service. The food was the best of our time in Kenya by a mile. The rooms are comfortable and clean. One thing I didn't quite understand was the pool. It is extremely cold, dirty, and just not an appealing area. I don't expect a hotel of this size to have an expansive...

Very nice hotel with spacious rooms in villas with English colonial style and super comfy beds. Views to the lake, zebras and giraffes from the garden while having breakfast. One of the best things of this hotel is the quality of the food and recipes they offer. The chef Moroco is fantastic and very nice! Moroco. The waiter Sammuel was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With panoramic views across the Great Rift Valley and the shimmering waters of Lake Oloidien and Lake Naivasha is a stunning quintessential country house with excellent facilities. Surrounded by the Oserengoni wildlife sanctuary corridors and overlooking a busy waterhole Kiangazi House offers guests a relaxed and homely atmosphere. The cozy Lounge, bar area and dining room all open up on to the magnificent veranda and the gardens that boast many wild and indigenous plants. The rustic swimming pool is nestled in to the gardens with views of the water hole and Lake Oloidien. Kiangazi has 2 beautifully appointed double ensuite and one twin bedroom within the main house. There are a further 4 double rooms a short walk from the main house. All bedrooms have large beds and furnishings carefully selected for each room so that no two rooms are the same. Some rooms have fireplaces and all boast spacious bathrooms with organic handmade bathroom products from Northern Kenya. Professionally trained chefs managed by Head Chef Richard Langat ensure many ingredients are locally sourced and of the highest quality, many coming from our very own dairy and vegetable garden. Kiangazi House has gained a reputation for having some of the best food in Kenya. We believe in guests being actively involved with what they wish to eat and when. ... more   less
