“A cool getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

The staff were very friendly and the rooms very cozy and spacious. I loved especially the open shower... but you need to take a hot shower, early morning - after, the water is warm. We cant wait to go back again in August.

The best thing about Enashipai is the incredible rooms. Not the biggest of the options in Naivasha (you can't beat the Naivasha Sopa rooms for size) but still spacious and beautifully furnished. My first stay was in one of the rooms with the outdoor showers and I loved the giant showerhead. Have also stayed in a cottage with a separate living room and fully equipped kitchen though we ate every meal in the living room. It is abit of a trek to get to the cottages from the dining room/ pool area but they have motorized buggies to pick you up. The gym is also excellent...small (I think there were 3 treadmills) but with a nice variety of machines and weights. I didn't try the spa so can't comment on that. It is quite pricey and I am not 100 percent convinced that it is worth SO much more than other hotels in the area. But it is wonderful.

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.

Room Tip: Do not take a room near the generator

The hotel is about a one hour drive from Nairobi, the first time we went i wasn't too impressed with the food and service, but they have used customer feedback to turn their image completely around... excellent place to go away for a weekend... there's a beautiful pool that you could use during the day as the young children are taken care of in a nearby entertainment play room. Food was great at all mealtimes and the rooms are beautiful with an outdoor shower.

Spent 2 nights at Enashipai in Jan 2014. I can not say enough about the room. We had the most comfortable bed, the furnishings were very tasteful and the outside bathroom was to die for. They had a buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner. On Sunday, lunch was by the lake which was set up very well... We will definitely be back!
