Beautiful Natural Landscaping, peaceful environment which seemed very spiritual in many ways that generated a feeling of real calmness. Great food, ambience , beautifully decorated tents and ever so friendly staff. Stunning sun downer! A must go back!

We have stayed for the Christmas holiday with my wife and a daughter.
Also a friend from Japan.
The house is located in a very quiet environment. Waking up with beautiful twitter for the small birds. The interior is made of natural material, it's a nice feeling. I hear the roar of leopard at night.
It was an amazing night. I cannot forget for ever.

Room Tip: All rooms have a nice view and a fireplace.

Outrageously spoiling, incredibly relaxing, with a view to die for - the Mukutan will steal your soul, and give it back to you enriched with the beauty of this place. We spent our days fishing on the dam - elephant and buffalo drinking from the shore, stunning walking safaris, picnics, then back in the evening to a hot bath in front of a roaring fire, the perfect gin and tonic, the moon rising over the gorge. Delicious suppers. Impeccable service. Unbeatable location. This place is heaven.

We spent 2 nights at Makena's Hills followed by 1 at the Mukutan Retreat, with Sveva Gallmann, the owner's daughter.

The two lodges make an excellent pair. Makena has a majestic view over the bush and the Rift Valley; Mukutan is more intimate, nestled at the end of a steep and heavily wooded valley.

The quality of the food and service was outstanding. The menu is based on Italian cuisine, to match Kuki Gallmann's background.

The accommodation is beautiful: large, separate huts each with an open fire that crackles as you go to sleep.

There is no pool (although there is a plan for plunge pools for each room) but there is a natural hot spring in the valley below. It takes around 15 minutes via an amazing jungle walk.

Room Tip: As others have written, it is best to book for several nights and to combine staying here with a stay at Makena's Hills. The nature reserve is very large and takes time to traverse. You will need time to enjoy it.

Prince Bernhard (of the Netherlands) was there many times but kept it a secret. These " royally" equiped Mukutan lodges are paradise on earth, not in the least because of the remarkable story of the life of mrs Gallmann who wrote the famous book " I dreamed of Africa", but also because of the fabulous nature, the spectacular views AND the absolutely delicious food. The great care of the personal, with managers Kyle and Lara made this magical experience complete. So don't tell anyone about this hidden paradise....
