One of the best hotels in Kenya I guess. Everything was excellent. Good service / Delicious meals / Good surrounding... everything perfect. There is no better place to see the Great Rift Valley than this. Rooms are very comfortable!!!

We organised a conference that brought people from all over the world to beautiful Kenya and to this quiet, scenic venue in Naivasha. The staff were warm, always willing to help and they handled our large group with ease.

The Lodge is home to a beautiful golf course where you can play and watch zebra and antelope on the fairways or greens. The accommodation offers breathtaking views of the lake. If you're into running, the lodge offers paved path ways that border the lodge allowing you to run 5 or more kilometers. The food is also prepared fresh with...

We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights in a wooden cabin with great views of the Rift Valley. A good place to retreat and relax. Very over priced about 300$ for what you get. But it's the experience and closeness to nature that makes this place special. Good food, I loved the balsamic dressing, really one of the best...

My partner and I recently spent 4 nights in the beautiful and tranquil Rift Valley, Kenya staying at the Great Rift Valley Golf and Country Club Hotel. Whilst the property has a wonderful location overlooking lake Naivasha, with excellent golf and tennis facilities, sadly it is looking a little frayed around the edges and in need of a little TLC....

Rip off by the front office who demanded full payment of the flamingo boat trip x 8 passengers while we were two. Never seen such rampant blantant frauds. Killed my interest to visit any other local places of interest. Facilities were good but the service level and quality of food was poor.

Dear Guest, We have noted with regret the above review. Please note that excursions pricing is not done with an intent of defrauding the client, but at the same time needs to be economically viable for the resort to undertake. The pricing structure is therefore based on this principal and we regret hence why we could not undertake it for...

Stayed here for one night and yes, this place is heaven on earth. Playing golf was an experience here with the Zebras around you. The lodges were beautiful, peaceful with log fires. There is a lovely bar and a restaurant. Five stars relaxation with fantastic weather over looking Lake Naivasha.

This weekend I stayed here for two nights. I found it amazing! The staff was helpful and very friendly. Although we had to wait quite a while for our lunch because of technical problems, we got compensated by not having to pay for the food. The pool is nice, fresh and the beds at the pool comfortable.
