I have visited Small World frequently as a child. Not much appeared to change for many years until recently. The new Swahili inspired hotel is a dream to look at and the rooms are unique and tastefully designed. You can hear the distant whirr of traffic going by but there is an overwhelming calmness in the rooms and its not too hard to fall asleep! I particularly loved their breakfast - the Head Chef whipped up a "naughty waffle" for me and my boyfriend and it did not disappoint. Oozing with chocolate, raspberries and homemade jam it was absolutely delicious! I would definitely recommend if you're looking for a quick getaway only a stone throw away from Nairobi. Also, plan your journey well to avoid being caught up in traffic - mid morning start is what I would
recommend!

Have you ever paid for a hotel and feel like you underpaid ? This place is beautiful from the interiors to the staff ..... they even put a hot water bottle in my bed. Customer service is 💯 ... the rooms oh my wooord!! I’m still absorbing the beauty. My seven year old niece literally woke up saying “this place has amazing sleep”

WiFi is good doesn’t go down like most places do

The place is a few minutes drive from the CBD but feels like I’m in the coast with cooler temperatures. I am in love 😍

The place is a perfect sunny Sunday plan for a date or even family lunch.
The drive from town to out town makes it even a better plan; it is close yet not so close (45mins from CBD)
The menu is not soooo elaborate but the food they offer is very fresh. The meat served on various tables looked so tough and dry so did not order that.
The swahili theme; off white; makes it look totally like the coast. White sandy beaches plus the full blown temperatures.
The pool at the middle of the grounds is such a good idea; one enjoyed by kids and grown ups a like.
The rooms are also something to reckon.
Beautiful place on the msa highway

I stayed at Small World over the Valentines Weekend. The rooms are just amazing as every room is different and unique and they made a big effort on the valentines decorations! The food was delicious and the concept ‚farm to table’ is something that really impressed me. I loved the pizza and bread which are made fresh in a pizza oven! They organised a gamedrive and a beautiful hike for us which was great! I would definitely stay again any time it is the perfect getaway from the craziness of Nairobi and it feels like a holiday yet so close! The pool area is beautiful only I found the music to be a little too loud at first but they turned the volume down when i asked which was very nice and the service continued to be great! Definitely worth to go!!!

No welcome drink, poor communication from the receptionist. She lied that there's DSTV in the rooms and constantly lied that she had sent the room mentainance people to come and check it later on to be told there's no connection in the room. they lack basic things like bread and baked beans for breakfast. in the menu very few items are available. no help from the waiters. They take orders, dissaper only for another waiter to come and you start following for your order 1hr later you're told the food you requested is not available. very poor arrangement for the mini bar upselling in the rooms. no prices and that's exposing alcohol to children under 18. the place is just good for taking pictures but the service is very very poor.

Really impressed with the renovations at Small World. Feels like being at the coast on a sunny day.

We pre-ordered a chicken curry for dinner with family, it was a superb curry! The chicken was succulent and so tasty. All compliments to the chef, the really polite waiting on staff and manager who made the arrangements for us. Will definitely be making arrangements to have another!

Pizzas are really nice, freshly made and cooked in front of you in the stone oven. Great value for money and even better on a Thursday with the 2 for 1 deal!

The place is really clean, toilets are spotless and hot hand towels are provided before and after you eat.

Enjoyed our staycation here, however being our 3rd time at this place, we believe they could offer more activities for adults or in general to keep people busy during the day. There’s potential to offer more given the amount of space within the vicinity.

Breakdown review below:
We were on B&B so Breakfast buffet review:
Theres room for improvement on the buffet, the bacon & liver were hard, potatoes were burnt and baked beans were undercooked. The food items should be clearly marked eg the sausages just said sausages without indicating if its pork/beef or chicken. The buffet also did not have a variety after having breakfast for 2 days you’ll be bored of it on the 3rd.

Food from the A la carte menu was nothing short of amazing and fresh. Their pizzas 10/10 would recommend, our favorite the Kuku pizza.
In short ordering from the a la carte menu 💯 amazing, they take the time to make it perfect.

Room- we stayed in their deluxe room. It’s amazing however they need to be keen on the details… check under the beds, - we had a redbull can that was there from the day we arrived till the next day.

Overall stay 6/10 there’s room for improvement in terms of activities during the day and breakfast. We truly enjoyed the food from the a la carte menu.

The name depics it all, a small world with great exprencies for families, the rooms are great, good service and would recommend the whole mbuzi from the menu for a big party. It's 30min drive from nairobi with a perfect hiking trail near Lukenya. Big thanks to Diana & assistant manager for making the experience perfect.

Visited small world on mombasa road after viewing their beautifully laid instagram page .
I arrived and the receptionist was warm and welcoming and proceeded to the pool.Took 30 min to get a table despite their being so many tables that were empty with a reserved card.
Once seated I had to wait another 30min if not more to get a waiter who disappeared only to come back after an eternity with the refreshments.Placed food order at 2pm and after numerous complains food arrived on the table at 5PM!!!! We were hungry and the kids had to be soothed with snacks coz it was unbearable.
Beautiful facility but the service is wanting !
Rate 1/10

Great place for a weekend getaway! On arrival, we were treated to a welcome drink and the check in process was smooth and seamless. We were led to our room which was spacious, clean and spotting a Swahili theme which we loved. The meals and service staff were exceptionally good. Very courteous and helpful. The pool is clean, rooftop lounge area was amazing for sundowners and great photos. The property boasts of beautiful and very well-kept grounds. Shout out to the GM, Priscilla who made our stay memorable. We will definitely be back very soon.
