The larger blue and pink hotel with 100 rooms takes the cleanliness award for Maralal. The design of the building is such that no noise echoes through the rooms.
In all directions the hotel gives majestic scenery of Samburu plains whose grandeur is enhanced by its consort with wildlife and by the calm dignity of the herdsmen and their herds.
The hotel can be accessed through Maralal-Nyahururu highway that leads to the hillside town of Maralal, the headquarters of Samburu County.
