J.’s sister came to visit a few weeks ago and for part of her stay, the five of us went up to Malu Cottages in Naivasha. Overall, it was really great.
We stayed in one of the family villas. It had two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Each bedroom was en suite. It also had a sizable common sitting room area, complete with fireplace. It was perfect for us!
The beds were comfortable. Linens were nice. The views were great. We could even see Mt. Longonot in the distance.
The service there was excellent. The food was absolutely amazing. It’s all a la carte and they are great with catering to any food allergies.
We loved it! There was just one problem…and it’s us, not them. Malu is very much a working farm. Horses, cows, donkeys, and other animals roam around grazing. I loved it (expect that it freaked out Oreo and Maddie, but they could adjust). J. however is very, VERY allergic to horses. So, having the horses come right outside our window was a problem for him.
If you have allergies to any animals, you should keep this in mind. Otherwise he loved it and he wished he didn’t have the allergy. But, things being the way they are, he was stuffy and uncomfortable during our stay.
One other thing to keep in mind is the road. It’s a very rough road. We managed, but with some difficulty in our Toyota Fortuner (drives like a tough-as-nails-truck and with a high clearance than a Toyota Prado). Do not attempt that road with anything other than a 4×4 SUV. A sedan or compact car will die on that road.
Because of allergies, we can’t really stay there again. Otherwise, we totally would. It’s like paradise up there. Plus J. really wishes he could take the Landy up that road!
I recommend it for anyone who wants to get out of the city or has a group of visitors coming.
