GRVL was the backdrop to an incredible conference. They made everything easy, were helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty in many instances. Food is INCREDIBLE and was consistently so, for the 4 days we visited. The bush dinner comes highly recommended. The GRVL team made my first trip to Kenya unforgettable. Thank you!

Disappointed that I was allocated room that was occupied and management asked me to look for whoever had taken my room and get right key. No briefing on arrival. Staff aloof. Food fair. Poor response to guest concerns

Only had a little time for something fun and interesting on this business trip. William at the Great Rift Valley helped me plan something that fit into my schedule and served as my guide. He was wonderful.

The environment was very lovely since I am a lover of nature - breathtaking actually. My room was not so appealing, no phone nor directory, no view per se save for the entrance of the house. We hassled in the night with my housemate as we tried to find the directory and tried to call the reception to get the...

If you love golfing, then you are just in the right place. Its large compound offers more than 4 km jogging track that is suitable for...

Came here for the weekend. Amazing, exquisite and elegant. The staff was very friendly not to mention help from Adan Bidu and Chef Micheal Oloo. Adan helped us locate everything on site, where to buy groceries and even helped chef Oloo cook a very tasty ugali mbuzi with kachumbari. The great rift is the place to be and Micheal and...

Stayed for a night at the hotel. Staff were very friendly and willing to help. The rooms are super with breathtaking views! We couldn't get enough of it. The place was also very quiet which allowed us to relax and unwind. Only thing we did not like is that the buffet menu did not have much variety, and the food...
