Amazing view across the lake from the pool. Cold beer, fantastic samosas. Think the place is having a bit of a refurb . Also good to see the old ox cart pulled out into public view , it would be amazing to see it put back into service taking clients for sundowner safari's,maybe down to coles monument. We use this...

Do you need quiet time, with only birds and whistling breeze? This is the place to be. Thanks Mwai and team. We had a fabulous time. Now to the ratings. Plus - great staff, clean rooms, comfy beds, peace and quiet. Food OK Budget friendly. Swimming pool - can be quite hot. Minuses- relatively few activities especially for kids. Thanks.

Spent a relaxing weekend here to get away from the bustle from Nairobi. The hotel is very well-located, beautiful views of the lake and a close proximity - you can walk right down to the shore and see awesome birds and flamingos. We also did a great 4 hour hike up the Ugali Hills with Joseph, who was a great...

We were glad to choose Jacaranda Hotels-Lake Elementaita Lodge for Our Christmas Holidays. The rooms are nice and comfortable, the staff were very polite and courteous especially Timothy and Mr Bean who went out of his way to make sure the kids were entertained

It would have been 5 stars if the place was better looked after. Food is average. The best most friendly staff you can find anywhere. Very cosy comfortable rooms. Ill back definitely because of the environment, serenity and overall relaxing experience. There is a swimming pool too with deck chairs. No wifi except in the lounge dining areas.

Dear Kitwa M, Thank you for sharing your review.

This is a beautiful place; the accommodation is set in its own gardens and there is a view of the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are very kind and welcoming.
