My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights in mid-January and found it to be a fantastic and unforgettable experience. We were greeted with warm towels and a welcome drink at the airstrip and introduced to our game driver Moses, who had been assigned to us for our stay. The property is only a few minutes drive...

Our luxurious "tent" with private deck overlooked the River Mara oxbow, where dozens of hippos cruised by each evening to graze, and returned following the exact same path each morning. Relaxed, friendly service, the grounds are maintained as a park within. A preserve. Our guide and driver Jeremiah was the best. We saw everything-- total of 26 different mammals, including...

Our game driver John was the best part of our vacation. He stopped when ever my wife wanted a picture A- LOT. He found animals i could not see. The food was great and the free time worked out to rest and not feel rushed. This was one of best vacations we have had. Thanks to all the great staff

Definitely going back for another weekend of a super weekend. We would highly recommend the Fairmont at the Mara. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the hotel owing to the extra attentive staff going the extra mile when you need something but also leaving you in privacy when you need it.

Fairmont may not enjoy the spectacular location that Mara Serena does, but what it lacks it more than adequately makes up for with superior meals and service by the staff. This is my second visit after an almost 10 year abscence and was pleased to once again be extremely impressed by the quality of food and superior service by staff....

Our room was right on the banks of the Mara River. Hippopotamuses were in the water just near our tent. It was just wonderful to be so close to these amazing animals. The facilities were great. There was a spa, pool and guest lounge area. the safaris from the hotel were excellent. The driver guides were very knowledgeable.
