I was just there to speak at a conference, but my brief exposure left me delighted with the service: Kenya at its best. The lunch buffet was excellent, and from entering the expansive compound one gets the sense of a very well cared for property.

If you are going with family to this place then its a BIG NO! 1. Rooms need to be up-graded especially the bathroom 2. We had a problem with hot water as well 3. For veggie lovers this is not the place for you ! 4. No entertainment what so ever after dinner! 5. Need more food varieties!

I spent the just ended Easter Holiday with my family at Sawela. It turned out to be so much better than I expected. I was a little hesitant about the place after reading some negative reviews but I just thought to give it a try. The room we were originally booked in didn't work for us...Nicole, the Front Office supervisor,...

The rooms where superb and the environment was just perfect. Only short fall is that they do not provide a comfortable stay for people who smoke. so one is forced to go smoke outside in the cold at night
