The lodge is located in a marvelous view to the rift valley lake near by. The garden and the the Tukuls are very attractive. Many bird species flight over the lodge's compound. The marabou...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

After a horrible night in Mora Heights Hotel, we moved to Paradise Lodge. What a relief!! Rooms were nice, clean and well equipped - with its specific traditional touches. The view was great, staff service good (although they did lost my Agoda voucher that then was a bit of a problem) and food great. And they have a pool where...

You would never know that you are in town - the lodge looks out over the valley to the lakes - we even had a family of warthogs come up over the ridge to visit. The individual rooms are rustic but very nice - ours had been recently renovated - mosquito nets but saw no mosquitos or any bugs -...

Stayed here for one night only, the customer that I was visiting booked it for me. I would have enjoyed a longer stay with more appropriate relaxed clothing. The accomodation "hut" was excellent with stunning views from the veranda to the mountains and lakes beyond. All of the staff were amazingly friendly and eager to help in any way. I...

After spending a night at Zebib Hotel, we decided to move to this place. From my room (104), I could see amazing views of the two lakes. The design of the rooms was very quaint and I loved it. The hotel offers complimentary laundry, there is a gym, swimming pool and massage. My only recommendation is putting Wi-Fi in rooms....

The beginning of our stay was really rough. The stuff could not find our reservation and let us chose between a room with no toilet and a room in a construction site. You could imagine how angry we were. To our luck, the whole hotel crew were on a two week intense "service seminar" by a lovely and talented Dutch...
