The first impressions are of grandeur. The rooms are spacious and elegantly decorated.The showers even those that are not under the open skies are a pleasant experience.
The hotel however does not capture the spirit of Naivasha which is one of space and a shimmering rift valley lake, at least from the ground floor one cannot see the lake and there are unnecessary man made formations such as rock gardens/ short scenic walls that block the view of the lake. Ground cottages are surrounded by hedges which gives one a sense of claustrophobia rather than privacy and contrary to the spacious rooms.
The early morning view from the veranda was disturbed by the continuous hum of a generator. There is also some construction going on one wonders why the hotel was opened before completion. The food is mediocre and the salads are non existing more like a garnish… However if you are do need a good conference venue then the Enashipai is the location. There are a number of ample rooms for meetings large and small which are will equipped. The staff is not very well trained but are friendly and helpful. It must get busy at weekends because when I finally did take a walk to the lake there I noted gardens that cater for special functions. It would be a nice place to get married and take your own chef along.
