We departed Nairobi at 10:00 Am, the plan was to check in the evening.

Accommodation at Lake Nakuru Flamingo Resort & Spa.
The hotel has 60 Spacious single and twin rooms furnished with voguish, newfangled modern amenities and the room ornamentation is simply phenomenal.
They have divided the rooms into three suits, Executive, Deluxe and Twin Suites.
This is the room I was booked in and to be honest I did not want to leave the room.
The views of Lake Nakuru and the surroundings were not only awe-inspiring and imposing stupendous but also gave a new definition of nature.
Back to the room, it has a cabled modern flat-screen television, Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, safe and free room service.
You don’t have to leave your room since attendance is only a call away.
Sleeps two, it has one King Size Bed.
The Executive and deluxe suites rooms are kindred only that the executive is more spacious than all the rooms including the deluxe.
This is simply a deluxe suite room with two beds ideal for a family.
The prices are still the same as the deluxe room suite.

What is unique about Lake Nakuru Flamingo Resort & Spa?
So, why should you book this hotel? What is special about it? What is that I will get from this accommodation am not able to get somewhere else.
These are the questions I always ask myself whenever I want to book any accommodation.
These are my personal opinions on why I would choose Lake Nakuru Flamingo resort & Spa over the nearby hotels.
This was a pull factor for me, I know I can get way cheaper but the facilities and the services you will get in this hotel are beyond what you pay for.
It is even more interesting how they never compromise their services despite their affordable prices. This practice is rare to find in most hotels.
As much as they are in business their drive is to, give you the best experience and they are content and happy to be at your service.
Lake Nakuru Flamingo Resort & Spa is one of the hotels in Nakuru located near Lake Nakuru National Park (100 Meters away from Lanet Gate).
What I liked about this alluring hotel is that they can organize an adventurous game drive at LNNP for a small fee.
You will have an option of a tour Van or Land cruiser with an English-speaking experienced tour guide/driver.
Lake Nakuru National Park is known for the lesser and greater Flamingo not forgetting the Big four, Rhino, Buffalos, Leopard and Lions.
Disabled friendly Hotel:
It is one of the disabled-friendly hotels in Nakuru and this brought a whole new perception of the hotel.
Facilities in Lake Nakuru National Park.
This is one of the main reasons why this hotel is ranked highly by travellers and among the best hotels in Nakuru.
These are the facilities you will get to enjoy when you book this resort as your preferred destination accommodation.
Some are free while others attract a small fee.
No matter what time I check in any hotel I always head up to the pool before a meal. We arrived at around 6:00 PM and before anything I was in the bewitching pool.
This enchanting pool is welcoming especially if you`re in the rooms that face the pool.
It is so welcoming you will not help yourself but soak in the pool.
The swimming pool is free to all residents.
Fitness & Gym.
Am not a gym person pe say (I prefer Morning Run as I enjoy nature) but I visited the facility later on in the day.
What I saw is capped in one word, Incredible.
I regretted why I never visited the gym that early morning.
They have one of the best gyms in Nakuru in terms of equipment and modernization.
It is quite spacious for weight lifting and Cardio.
They also have qualified trainers who will assist you whenever the need arises especially to newbies. It is also free for residents.
Spa and Sauna Experience.
Which one do you prefer? Or rather can you tell the difference between Sauna and Spa?
Well, here is the difference so that once in Lake Nakuru Resort & Spa you can choose whichever suits you.
They both use heat as a method to clean and reinvigorate your body.
So, what is the main difference? Saunas use heat to cleanse the body whereas the Spa will use water to do the same job.
So, I picked the Spa.
Apart from this, there is also a Massage Parlor, executive Saloon and Barbershop.
Team Building at Nakuru.
This is the powerhouse of team building in Nakuru.
Their expansive lush green landscapes will make you want to craft acrobatic gymnastics in the sight of the exquisite landscape.
Same grounds you can have weddings or outdoor parties or Camping.
Are you in African artefacts? I am and I enjoyed shopping for souvenirs that will always remind me of Lake Nakuru Flamingo Resort & Spa.
Your kids will love it here and request even for a repeat.
I reminded myself of having random swings there and there.
I could tell the kids presents were enjoyable, some of the parents joined their kids and it looked like a fun plan for a family.
As I mentioned earlier, Lake Nakuru Flamingo Resort and Spa is centred in a 3-acre land.
You can have a nature walk with your loved one.
As you enjoy the beauty of the hotel and nature at the same time. The nature walk is so healing and soothing.
The food is not only tasty and finger-licking but also, I was impressed by how there was variety and especially if you’re a vegetarian.
They made efforts to consider the vegetarians, I had a vegan friend and she didn’t complain of anything.
All the possible variety was at her disposal.
She lauded them for this, funny how I didn’t even notice since am a hungry carnivore. The meat was in plenty.
