“Beautiful retreat from Nairobi”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent a lovely weekend at the cottages with our three kids. Well maintained cottages and gorgeous property with a private tennis court and heated pool. The only issue we had was that the cook who I understood was not the regular chef was not very well versed with basics like bbqing chicken, baking fish or even setting the table and accordingly we spent more time than we would have liked cooking and overseeing the kitchen. Nevertheless the staff were helpful and pleasant. Mosquito nets would be a good addition as there were lots of mosquitoes, possibly due to the rain. All in all it was a nice relaxing weekend for adults and kids and we would return again.

“Would definitely go back”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Two cute A-frame cottages and a main house set in large grounds. Although the cottages and main house are in the same compound, they are very private; the owner and his family were in the main house on the same weekend and we couldn't tell at all! Cottages have a fully-equipped kitchen plus handy kitchenette as well as an outdoor grill. The pool was a little cool but my two year old could swim in it with no problem. We also had a TV/DVD player in the living room as well as access to the tennis courts but we didn't think to bring DVDs or Tennis rackets! Mary, the cook, was super! Polite, friendly and could cook everything we asked with little to no instruction. The owner was friendly and quick to respond and we spent a lovely few days swimming, eating and barbequing. We ended up extending our stay and will definitely be going back. The road is a tiny bit rough getting there so, although our saloon made it ok, I recommend a car with higher clearance until the road works are complete (maybe 2015).

Liked best: Everything really but the Main Bedroom was gorgeous, with a lovely bathroom with tub, fantastic view from the balcony and a bed you could sleep in all day.
Liked least: Living room could probably have cosier furniture and the pool is set a little way off from the house, which may be a consideration for older or less mobile visitors

“If you need to get away from the rat race, go there”
Reviewed 3 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Tranquil environment, Cabin furnished tastefully, clean and friendly. massive help by the staff Peter, Moses and my wife was particularly impressed by Jane, the cook. She was versatile and cordial. Clean pool, serene gardens and impressive Tennis Court. The road to the place had just been fixed so no need for a 4 x 4. The place would do with TV in the living room and/or a sound system for the evenings. Stop considering it. Just go!

“The children, our friends and we all loved this place. We'll be back.”
Reviewed 5 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Lovely accomodation in two cottages attached by a terrace that so suited our two families. Spacious bedrooms all with en suite bathroms and wonderful outlooks onto the gardens or lake and Rift Valley. The heated outdoor pool and tennis court were very spoiling and the golf course was moments away. Local attractions of lakes and parks were all within a 1-2 hours of the lodge and the animal viewing was very good without being touristy. Some days though we spent just enjoying the lodge and its facilities and its 25 acres of wild gardens and its home cooked foods. The staff were cheerful, helpful and great at their jobs.

“Lahai - cute, but no fireplace”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Stayed at Lahai cottages a couple of weeks ago, super friendly (dancing!) staff who were very helpful!

Two super nice bedrooms with fabulous views on the 1st floor, nice bedroom on ground floor as well. Nice sitting area, but really lacks a fireplace! There´s not even a fireplace outside!

Heated pool! Big plus! And a turtoise garden! :)

Easy access to golf course!
