10/10 Exceptional

My friend and I stayed at the Kempinski for two nights midweek...and it was amazing. We were picked up at the airstrip and given a mini game drive for about an hour until we reached the camp. We were greeted with a traditional Maasai welcome (complete with singing and dancing) and a refreshing tree tomato drink. It was so unique! They also had a hand washing station and a temperature check screening. All staff at Olare Mara wear masks and the dining staff wear gloves too. There is hand sanitizer all over the place...it made us feel safe during our stay. Our tent was glorious. We were in Tent #9 along the river. The tent was luxe, clean with lots of extra amenities - rainboots, bathrobes, umbrellas, mosquito nets, surgical masks and a clawfoot bathtub. Meals are usually 3-4 courses and were overseen by the FABULOUS Moses, the restaurant manager. He was DIVINE. He remembered our favorites and anticipated our needs, even making sure we had fresh bread (which they make onsite!) and hot dawa every day. He was extremely attentive and fast. Truly exceptional service. Alcohol was not complimentary but was top shelf. A nice bottle of chardonnay was about $45. Highly recommend this resort.

6/10 Good

I liked the room however we did not have hot water 3 mornings out of the 4 mornings we spent at the hotel. That is unacceptable given how much we paid to stay at this luxury lodge. It was also very cold so taking a cold shower was out of question.

Everything great but food could be improved
We had a great stay and could not fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The food however was not what one would expect from a 5-star camp.
