The PERFECT getaway!!!

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Linda K Couples - TripAdvisor review

If you are looking for a romantic getaway with adventure and luxury, this place is IT! We stayed in the deluxe riverfront tent, overlooking hippos and crocodiles! Our fully powered tent also had a comfortable four-poster bed, a bathroom, and both an indoor & outdoor shower! And yes, there's a blow dryer! There's no wifi in the tent which enhances the experience of being off the grid. There is access to wifi in the main lobby/restaurant area. For game drives, there are two options: early morning and late afternoon. Our guide Mike was fun knowledgeable and did a good job finding so many animals (lions, elephants, cheetahs, and much more).. During downtime,  we enjoyed the pool, a soothing massage, and relaxed on our deck. The culinary experience here was nothing short of amazing. We dined at the hippo deck for dinner, had a bush breakfast, and had an interactive lunch where we had a farm-to-table experience with Chef Haziz! Special thanks to the general manager Steve for curating our unforgettable stay, and to our F&B team Dennis and Martin for showing us an incredible culinary experience throughout our stay. They went above and beyond. I would recommend this hotel to luxury travelers, honeymooners, and couples!

Somewhere to go for the holiday of a lifetime, and then repeat every year

Sally G TripAdvisor review

I was fortunate to return here in October for the first time since Covid. Some of the staff have changed, some of the decor has changed, However the welcome from everyone was the same as ever. The days start with waking in the early morning with a cup of tea prior to the first drive, returning for a scrumptious breakfast. Then a few hours to relax, roam the beautiful grounds, rest and snooze beside the swimming pool, enjoy the view from the veranda of my tent, and enjoy another delicious meal. Followed by the afternoon drive, dinner, perhaps a drink or three in the lounge prior to a very comfortable bed. The 14 nights passed too quickly. Every day the same and yet every day was new and so very exciting! I come for the beautiful Maasai Mara, the amazing animals, some so beautiful, some so ugly they are beautiful in their own right, and of course this unique luxorious hotel. I have been coming here for almost 20 years, and I cannot recommend it highly enough and will be definitely returning next year. Thank you Steve (GM) and you team for making this another amazingly memorable stay.

This was the 3rd stay of our 7 day vacation in Kenya. I want to call out Peter, Kendi and Brian for making our stay very comfortable. We were here for 2 nights. The tents overlook the mara river and it is filled with hippos. Its an amazing view for anyone out here on a safari. They always kept hot water bags in the bedroom to ensure we are comfortable in the chilly nights. I wanted to have a bush dinner but couldn't due to the rains. The food was very good as well with a wide range of options. The hotel is a 1.5-2 hour drive from the main Masai mara. But even the journey till there is beautiful and we saw a bunch of wildlife there too. We also went to the rhino conservancy here which is a memory of a lifetime for us. One issue, the road to the hotel from the main road is 35kms of rough road and definitely needs some work.
