The rooms have panoramic views of the environs and the lake and are lavishly appointed, their ingeniously designed roofs gently sweep away from one side of the main building to form a crescent which leads towards the lake shore,  the exterior walls of the cottages have creepers and bougainvilleas,  excellent stone work is showcased in the rooms, wrought iron is used on banister going up to the first floor with creepers and bougainvilleas entwined around.

Food & Beverage

The Main Restaurant serves excellent food ranges between Continental, Swahili (Kenya Coast), and Mediterranean cuisines, often with a deliciously subtle fusion of all three disciplines and all prepared using fresh produce and accompanied by a selection of home baked breads, and garden fresh fruits and vegetables. Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style. For a lighter snack during the day, there is a poolside bar, located between the swimming pool and the tennis court and serves a la carte menu and has a pizzeria. The dining room also has a large, outdoor patio with umbrella-shaded tables for those who wish to enjoy an open air meal during the day.

The  main bar near the lounge, with its dark timber panel finish, cozy ambience, romantically subtle concealed lighting and high, upholstered bar stools, would have once been the perfect setting for a scene from one of Dirk Bogarde’s movies.
