Sarova Woodlands, located in Nakuru 159km from Nairobi and a five minute drive from Nakuru town, is a luxurious retreat in the posh suburbs of Milimani. I was there for our second anniversary with my boyfriend. The location is everything. Mowed lawns and canopies of jacaranda trees meters before reaching the hotel. A cab costs 200/= We got to the entrance and the design of the hotel and the huge SAROVA WOODLANDS golden sign gives you a glimpse of the luxury I was about to experience. It was on a Wednesday evening and I could see a few cars on the lot. Don’t let that fool you, if you come here on Saturday of Sunday, you will find a tonne of people. Families at the pool areas that charges 500=/ per head, guys at the bar, tourists booking rooms that vary between 14,000/= to 25,000/= per night and couples having dates at the restaurant. We walked to the restaurant. They call it the Cinnamon restaurant. It is beautifully lit. Cream walls, brown tables and brown and turquoise seats. As soon as we were seated, a waiter approached us with a smile and offered us the menu. What to eat for an anniversary? I had the grilled spring chicken which goes for 1750/=. I am yet to taste a more delicious grilled chicken. My boyfriend had the pork chops which go for 1950/= The service was delightful. The moved with such grace. After dinner, we strolled through the swimming pool and had a night cap at the bar. I felt special. That was an anniversary to remember.
