We had a beautiful stay at this resort once owned by William Holden, the actor. It is located directly on the equator and features spacious, well-lanscaped parks and trails. The rooms were well-appointed, clean and quiet. They came in and built a fire in our room in the evenings.The common area, lounge, restaurant etc. were exquisite and beautiful. They even had a large maze and a little chapel on the property. (the piano really needs tuning and should be keep out of the weather). Entertainment was featured each evening before dinner. There were a number of activities available, horseback riding, nature trails, golf and other games. We had a massage. The food was excellent with lots of food choices. This was a great place to stay, just nice in every way.

Serene, peaceful and brilliant views of Mount. Kenya on clear day/night. The cottages are very elegantly furnished and provides more peace than the main club house. The 9 hole golf course provides a nice walk with a sand wedge and a putter. Good, helpful stuff. It can be very cold at night.

Room Tip: Cottages are better but pricey

Thank you for taking the time to your provide feedback of your recent stay with us at the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.
Our William Holden Cottages are indeed an idyllic place to relax and enjoy the spectacular view of the majestic Mount Kenya. I am so pleased to hear that your experience was matched by our attentive and engaged staff during your stay. I am delighted that you had a chance to play some golf whilst staying with us; did you know that we have Taylor Made clubs available at the hotel for all our Fairmont Presidents Club members? The course is actually quite unique as it is bisected by the equator!
I will share your kind review with all teams involved and I look forward to meeting you and personally welcoming you back on your next stay at the Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.
Regards

I've wanted to stay at this hotel for decades...and finally made it there in September, 2012. It exceeded my high expectations.

Our room was elegant and turn-down service included hot water bottles in the bed and the wood-burning fireplace lit.

The ambiance in the bar is stunning...not to mention the cool factor that the Equator runs through the center of the bar.

My only complaint was that the pool heater was not working when we were there so the water was a bit too chilly for me to swim.
