“Pink flamingos and Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

We (a group of 4 ) loved Chui Lodge.The food was the best I have ever eaten from entree through to wonderful desserts.My husband organized a bush breakfast for my birthday including champagne and a great cake AND we had the breakfast down by Lake Navisha surounded by hundreds of pink flamingos. It was a magical setting and a birthday I will always remember.
I loved the wood carvings in the dinning area,the fireplace lit at night in our room,the big bed with a perfect rose on the pillow and a hot water bottle,the big bathroom and good lighting in the bathroom,the beautiful vase of flowers in the room and in the dinning area bathroom.
We did a trip to Lake Nakaru Park -2 hours each way-and we did see plenty of animals and beautiful scenery but the pink flamingos were back at Chui Lodge on Lake Navisha.There is also a waterhole in front of the dinning area(outside a fence) which has numerous animals come to drink.We really enjoyed sitiing outside with a glass of wine watching the animals come to drink. It was a real holiday.For those who need to use Wi fi there was good reception at and near the dinning area.
The staff were friendly and efficient- Chris our guide, Stanley the assistant manager who also did an excellent job serving our meals and Anthony the best chef ever
We all loved our stay and would return again if we got back to Kenya

My wife and I went for special celebration.
Everybody, from safari guide -Bernard - to David - Head FB- pampered us as unexpected.
Great food service, good quality, great accommodation, and amazing breakfast next to thousands of flamingo and birds , facing giraffe .
All was so good that it will be difficult for us to recommend somebody specifically but strongly recommend this property.

Room Tip: Suite next to swimming pool is just one time life...

A brilliant experience at chui lodge it was slovenly and quit also drinks in the mini bar were free so we could have anything we wanted. The swimming pool was great and the food was fantastic. Also the facilities are very good such as the toilet and bath-tub. In my opinion it was a very nice quiet peaceful hotel. If its relaxation your after go to chui lodge. Also try Leopard Beach Hotel on Diani Beach its the best in the county in my opinion go there then tell me yours.
Well summarise my stay it was relaxing fun calm and amazing.

5 star

Room Tip: Chose a room near your friend so your near each other or it may get a bit lonely.

This luxury lodge is a real recommendation. The rooms are luxurious, in a quite garden, and the food -no buffet here but real service- is the best we have had in 3 weeks. The chef prepares an excellent cuisine ! Personnel is extremely friendly. The lake and Hell's Gate Park are easy to visit. The private park is nice but I would recommend it for less experienced people, those doing a safari for the first time or when you just arrived in Kenia after a long travel.

this is an amazing romantic getaway for couples... we went for a birthday celebration and couldn't have hoped for more.. the food is outstanding, the service 5 star.
I requested a sun-downer with a surprise cake! The kind lady manager (i forget her name unfortunately) arranged for us to have a separate car just for the two of us, we had an amazing game drive in their private reserve where you will see buffalos, hippos, giraffes, zebra, wildebeest, ostrich and even rhino's! .... followed by a sundowner, brought out the cake just before the sun began to set, and the whole experience was dreamlike.. what a perfect birthday!

My wife and I left our work in Nairobi for a two night stay at Chui Lodge in a Superior Room. This place was recommended by many friends as the best high-end stay around and they were correct.
Accommodation; We booked a superior which turned out to be the size of a small house. Everything was the best quality construction. The cottage was amazing with a porch view of animals not far from the deck where we could enjoy our fresh French-pressed coffee. There was a Jacuzzi tub complete with rose pedals around it courtesy of the lodge. The bed was HUGE an ultra comfortable. A nice fireplace kept us warm. I was a bit surprised by no bar-fridge especially since we paid $500 a night for all-inclusive.
Food. I used to think I knew was good food was until we were treated by Chui Lodge. Each meal was an event with the tastiest food I have ever experience in my 29 years of travelling. Great service was also provided in an amazing ambiance. Perfectly prepared, nice portions, and mouth watering good is how I would describe the food as Chui. It is worth going there just for this. The Lodge made us a Black Forest anniversary cake too!
Activities. Got treated to an amazing walking tour around Lake Navaisha where giraffes and zebra munch on grass meters away from where you are walking. The driver dropped us off at a good spot and then just followed a distance behind as we strolled along a beautiful trail. An afternoon game drive was superb and capped off with a sundowner complete with a glass of wine and a fire overlooking the valley. We could have stayed there all night.
Both my wife and I agree that this was the perfect way to spend our 25th anniversary - thanks Chui Lodge for the wonderful memories.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed great. The superior was amazing.

We visited Chui Lodge sometime in August Last year for a weekend from Nairobi.
We arrived after lunch and were received very warmly. We had missed the afternoon game drive, but went for the sundowner. The setup for the sundowner was great, with a bonfire lit, wine,soft drinks and some snacks provided. We left here around 7.30pm and had a night game drive enroute to the lodge. Very lucky to see a leopard, which was the highlight of the day. Had an excellent meal and catered very well for my wife who is a vegetarian. The next day we went for an early morning game drive, saw plenty of birds, including a hawk which had killed a small bird. The drivers are well conversed with the area.

On returning had an excellent breakfast. The lodge has a very romantic ambiance, the cottages are well equipped and very luxurious.

We checked out after lunch after a very satisfied and relaxing weekend.

Plus point: You don't need a four wheel drive vehicle to get there.
