Our romantic straw-bale cottages are the perfect romantic retreat.

Our four enchanting cottages are all in a row, far enough apart to ensure complete privacy – your own personal verandah and 100 mile views of Africa along the Great Rift Valley, looking out at Lake Naivasha, Mt Longonot and even Mt Suswa in the distance, and of course looking up towards the Mau escarpment on the other side of the Great Rift Valley.

Each of these little cottages has its own mini bar, en-suite bathroom with a large iron bath for those relaxing moments. Enjoy a relaxing massage in your room with our in house masseuse.

Every cottage also has; a large natural wood four poster double bed (one of the cottages can be a twin), log fire, large sitting area, big bath, mini bar, shower, private verandah, desk and wireless internet connection for those that must stay in touch.

Sit on your verandah and mull away the time as the horses and dick dicks wander past, gently grazing as you catch a gentle afternoon sun, or evening ‘sundowner’.

Malu Lodge is situated on the Rift Valley escarpment to the east of Lake Naivasha, 11km from the main Nairobi - Nakuru road and 14kms from Naivasha town. The lodge is nestled in an ancient forest with sweeping views over the Great Rift Valley.

Malu is a stunning getaway destination as well as a perfect base for excursions to Lake Nakuru National Park, Lake Naivasha, Crescent Island, Hell's Gate National Park and Kigio Game Reserve.

The lodge has several types of accommodation. There are four romantic cottages and two large family villas, each with a sitting room and two en suite double bedrooms, situated at the main lodge area in the centre of the Malu reserve. The rooms have views over Lake Naivasha and the Rift Valley.

The timber Tree House has a large living, dining, kitchen area and two en suite double bedrooms and a children's room annexe. It is situated at the Malewa river, five minutes' drive from the main lodge, offering unique privacy and stunning views over the Malewa and surrounding riverine forest.

There are also two Mahindu cottages, each having a large en suite double room and are situated within the stunning grounds of Mahindu farm house, beside the Mahindu stream. The tree house and Mahindu cottages can be taken on self-catering basis.

Indulge yourself in the Malu restaurant, with long lunches stretching into the afternoon. In the evening, relax by the blazing fire while Malo Lodge' Italian trained chef uses the finest, freshest ingredients to prepare your delicious meal.

We had a wonderful stay. Directions to the lodge weren't so clear we ended up taking a number of wrong turns before finally getting it right. The service was seamless however and we will definitely go back
Stayed with host at Mahindu Cottage as a small group in June 2014

Our stay was really perfect, we enjoyed it. We forgot something at the Lodge and our hosts were kind enough to make sure that it was sent back to us in Nairobi as quickly as possible. We are definitely going back.

It was an interesting experience but on account of the wet time, could not do much seeing around but the staff were excellent except one waiter who seemed to have an attitude. All others were extremely useful and happy.
