This is a near-perfect conference location. Green beautiful surroundings, well away from the city - we even saw antilopes next to the garden! It is quiet and peaceful, and really facilitates for concentration and rest well away from everyday stress. Delicious food. Good service. Very spacious rooms, and clean. I would think it is great for private trips as well,... More

Brilliant venue for our work conference. Lovely surroundings, very quiet and peaceful. The rooms were spacious, clean and with hot water and mosquito nets. The price was very reasonable and the food each day good quality and plenty. My only critique would be the internet isn't great.

My non-profit organisation has used this hotel many times for conferences over the years, for several reasons: i) it feels like Kenya. the hotel campus is beautiful, including the swimming pool area and all the other lovely shaded areas where small groups can breakout for discussion. In addition it is safe to walk around the neighbouring area where you can... More

I take it i went there on a bad week. There were many organizations having conferences there, which meant the whole hotel was fully booked, translated in the slowest WIFI, slow service at the restaurant and the last to arrive were put in temporary structures for the night, ended up staying there the entire trip. That being said, the rooms... More

the reception was good but slow, they carried our luggage and gave us a welcome drink. (box juice in a glass :) ) I loved the room decor: loads of wrought iron furniture and huge windows letting in light from dawn to dusk. I also loved the size of the bathroom and I had 2 towels and sandals that were... More

Went on a business trip but enjoyed the stay. A wonderful place for a business trip or leisure. Its away from all the Nairobi traffic. Good food and good staff. The rooms are clean. The hotel does not have a bar! You just come out of the hotel, and its a paradise of wild life

I spent the Easter weekend with my family. Lukenya has a very serene and homely environment. It is difficult to believe such a place exists 40 minutes away from the City! Staff were generally kind, friendly and generally helpful. Accommodation is varied ranging from basic suites to modern rooms. Meals (local cuisine )were fresh and quite tasty. The staff appeared...

I was only at Lukenya Getaway for a one-day conference. So I cannot comment on their rooms. They have great conferencing facilities and spacious grounds for team retreats. They have a large pool to cool off from the Athi River heat. Wifi is free and good. They have ample parking. One thing I would suggest is that the hotel needs... More

“All the rooms are great. If for honeymoon- choose the one with a jacuzzi. If with kids, ask for adjoining rooms . If a big family, they even have a separate house which has four bedrooms etc and is ideal for family since it even has its own swimming pool and area.”
