We had a night there as part of a safari to the Serengeti etc. The place was fantastic, and the staff really went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

Ignore the approach road - once you get inside the gate you will have an experience equal to anything you might find in a top class hotel in Nairobi.

Room Tip: Only one level, and a high external wall means there is no external noise.

We spent the first and last nights of our safari at Zawadi House. The rooms were clean and very well appointed, the equal of any nice business class hotel in the US, including air conditioning that felt pretty good when it was very hot out, and a nice shower. The staff could not have been more friendly or attentive, they even let us use their computer when our charger was missing. Meals were tasty and served in a very nice second-story dining room with windows on two sides to enjoy the lovely grounds and fresh air. Not an ideal place if you want to walk to town, because it is located a little off the main roads; but for a night or two when you just want to be pampered, it was terrific.

This was a great relaxing experience. The services were prompt and very respectful. The place was sparkling clean from bedsheets to floors. I did not expect it but the big screen plasma prevented the disconnect I would have had in my 1 week stay. The food, oh my my, the steak, the lush gardens, and Wifi made it complete. I recommend this experience to all.
