Try googling Garissa and almost everything you’ll see will be negative.Tell someone you are heading to Garissa and see how they look at you that is if they don’t ask you; what’s good in Garissa?,where will you stay? and the obvious that i won’t mention. Today am here to appreciate and write something positive about the town .Something that quite a number of you know nothing about,The answer to where will you stay. Garissa’s hospitality industry which i have to admit given the challenges the town has faced in the past,it is really growing.
I have had the pleasure of visiting the town twice my second time being last week.I’ ll be sharing my experiences in Almond Resort and Lantern Resorts respectively and hope when done you’ll all agree with me that Garissa has a beautiful side.
During my first visit i got to experience Almond Resort.This was early last year and i lost quite a number of my photos from that visit *sob* but from the few i could gather that i had shared on my social media platforms i think you can still get my point from below,Almond is beautiful.I never ideated existence of such a lovely hotel in Garissa, I was blown away from the moment i stepped out of the car.
Last week i visited Lantern Resort (work & pleasure) and i cannot seem to find the right words to define the place so i’ ll just leave the photos here, you tell me what you think.
I have only featured two hotels though i hear Nomad Palace Hotel is great too.I wouldn’t tell for sure for i haven’t been there but next time am visiting the town i sure will stay with them and i’ ll of course share my experience.
My two cents on both hotels
- There are plenty of trees and grass that’s all well taken care of, which is a relief in the blistering heat of Garissa.
- Both hotels are Cosy and Oasis in the desert
- Their landscaping is amazing
- very friendly staff and great services at Lantern Resort
- Great food in both hotels
If you ever find yourself in Garissa town and ain’t sure where to stay,pick either of the two,you can thank me later.I hope this post adds something positive to what you already know about Garissa town.
Love & Love
