what is going on everyone welcome to the channel  you remember every time we're asking please give   us suggestions of places to visit well this  week because you guys suggested that place over   50 to 100 times very common yeah  we are at Lerruat log resort   so this place is already amazing like our  balcony view and the rooms yeah and just   the fact that like everything is like you know  made of logs like it looks like a what we have   in canada like those ski resort yeah like in  banff or something like that yeah absolutely   except it's very very warm and there's no snow and  no possibility of skiing still like it though so   the room that we have is actually the executive  suite which goes for 34 000 kenyan shillings at   night we're gonna give you guys a tour but first  we're gonna go eat because it's 122. we were stuck   in traffic for a very long time um i'm hungry so  let's go check out the food because if the food's   good this place is going to be like almost a  10 out of 10 like i like it i really like it so we just got back from lunch and since you guys  haven't seen the room let's do a room tour okay   so when you first come in if you come over to  the right you have your beautiful king size bed   and look look what we haven't been in  in a while ropes and then if you were to   come back over on the other side you have your  bathroom in here and it's a really big bathroom you have a shower a jacuzzi but it still  has a shower in it and it looks a little uh   futuristic we're gonna figure this one out  there's buttons and everything we'll see and then   we even have oh sorry those  are a little squished here   come on we even have a little like lounge area  and i guess i can come by in the evening to   light the fire and i don't think we're gonna  need the fire we're pretty hot right now   and look at how big the balcony is with  the beautiful view over the rift valley and we also have a big chair and tonight  i think we're going to be here when we   answer some comments so lunch was really good little buffet  just enough of variety we tested almost   everything for you guys and everything was  actually very good so no problem a food side   and now this resort is actually like really really  big so we're gonna go explore a little bit i saw   a massive pool that we're gonna probably go jump  in because it's about like 33 34 degrees uh so   we are very very hot so we're gonna go check out  that pool and maybe some more things after that   because again there seem to have like so many  activity like it looks like a i don't know some   sort of like camp like we have back in canada  like a summer camp or anyway i'm very excited   tracy are you ready to go to the pool i'm ready we  changed and i only brought like a red t-shirt with   a pink bathing suit 10 points for the the match  matching points you're under arrest yes i do but   but i'm actually cheating because i i took it  up that the thing that they gave us because like   look how big this is doesn't even fit in my  pocket i'm not gonna lose i'm not gonna lose it   i'm gonna lose it because i said i'm  not gonna lose at some point exactly and look at the view behind us so it looks like they're doing some sort of  construction like to expand the resort or   something like that beside the pool  and one of the two pools look close   and it's starting to rain but is it going to  stop us no no we're just going to go jump in   the pool now full review of the pool coming up do  you need her i don't know the pool's really nice   though i'm going to give you a full review after  sure it feels like a canadian pool is it cold yeah   so it's super warm outside like 34 degrees but  the pool is very cold tracey says it's very cold so is it cold i want to say  words i can't stay on youtube   we're gonna get demonetized we can see the shivers yes that's enough of swimming for today plus  the rain is coming like it's really coming as promised pool review it's great but  it's too cold but i think they're not done   so from what you see now like it's gonna be  beautiful when it's done there it's already   really nice um it looks like they're gonna  have basically like two different pools   kind of like connect it but one above  the other with like some hot tubs yeah   and it looks like there's a lounge that's  gonna go in there and hopefully it's a heated   heating system hopefully a heating system  because like too cold and i'm canadian so it   was a canadian pool yeah pretty much i guess  it's probably not gonna rain after all it's   pretty much raining there though but not here  and the sun is back i think i'm gonna now   go take a shower in our spaceship i think there's  like a bee nest real close anyway while   tracey's watching some sort of national geographic  something something learning about animals yeah and then we're gonna go back out and explore a  little bit because there's a lot we didn't see yet okay how does this thing  work power that's not working okay i found the problem this switch now it seems  to be working red light okay so power there's way   too many buttons for a shower this okay oh there's  lights oh okay okay is there really like a radio okay there's music you can even plug your  bluetooth apparently okay i think i'm just gonna   like start the water and then  start playing with the buttons very confused i started it at first i turned  it and it was like for the bath then after that   the the side jet started to spray me and i  don't know how to use this so jokes aside   that was a pretty nice shower i like it lots  of possibilities like music and everything   it's too much but it's pretty cool nobody needs to  shower nobody needs that but whatever i'm glad we   have it i tried it i'm good uh now we're gonna go  walk around see see what's around because actually   like it looks like a massive like resort so let's  see i i really don't know i don't know me either   let's go it's crazy the temperature difference  like i'm comfortable in a sweater right now   so we're just kind of walking around  trying to figure out where everything is   these seem to be cottages that you can rent with  like a bigger group i guess we can actually see   those cottages from our balcony in the rear of  the room and they seem to have like a serious view   so behind me is actually the main  reception and if you look over to the right   is where the bar is so when we arrived when we  we drove up to the main lobby i saw people doing   like archery and i was like oh and there's  a place i wanted and i was like i want to do   there's a helicopter i said i want to do  archery there's a helicopter we saw that   helicopter land already yeah earlier and we  were like where did it land so yeah if you   have a helicopter you can actually come here  with your helicopter and you know don't mind traffic so as we're walking around we're  looking for like the archery   station um we found like a garden where  you can eat we found these little like   they're not really huts but kind of where you  can eat and so much bigger than what we thought so yeah we decided to like come in one of those  little hut we discovered that there's a nyamachoma   place there and we saw some food getting out of  the kitchen it looked pretty good like kachumbari   ugali and like the choma as well so it looks good  maybe we're just gonna have a little little bite   and behind me quite a nice view  as well so i mean not a bad spot   so we got some kachumbari and some potatoes and  some nyamachoma is it the good stuff i have to say   like we've only had it one other time before well  i have at least but this is so much better so good this is a good stuff okay so that meal was really good i'm glad we  we found that place by accident just by walking   around really good worth it now it's time to see  if tracey can shoot an arrow me too like i'm not   good i've never tried i just let go of like i have  these hands in it too but i shouldn't right you   just gotta pinch it just pull it back and release  it slowly has to like be a surprise like i would no got it back feel like i have pressure yeah you do holy moly how'd you do that there you go yeah like  i just feel like i'm just put it back oh [ __ ] better than you okay let's  see who can get it like as   as close as possible to the 10. i just like  i don't know whether to do it like this or   like straight in front you know what i mean  how to angle myself do it with your feelings getting better pretty good so we just came back from exploring the resort  like we did archery we're not very good at it then   we saw the chopper leave i want a chopper anyway  it's really good food too it was really good yeah   i have to say i'm glad we found that spot yeah  so you guys all know that i love the sunsets   so we're gonna go watch the sunset a little bit  and then probably go to supper around eight yeah   we're pretty lucky because our room faces the  mountain and the the sun is gonna set like right   beside them so not beside but behind yeah to  be honest i think all of them face like even   the rooms downstairs you might not have as great  a view because we're like there's there's other   buildings looking the other way but they would  have sunrise so i mean pretty good they wanted   the other so we're gonna do that relax and then  supper but not now because i'm full of nyamachoma so we just left the bar where we had the two  strongest margarita margarita with sangria   like ever but the vibe in there i'm sorry but i  love that yeah like kenyan music there's a fire   it's like wooden all around it's very very  nice but now it's 15 after eight so it's   time for supper so we're gonna go back to the  same restaurant as earlier and and have supper so the restaurant that we ate at for  lunch was a little bit crowded so   the service showed us a different spot  and i've got a nice little fire outside it's a pretty nice spot and we are back from supper that's  good nothing wrong with that   everything was there variety happy with it no  complaint so our plan was to come back here   and just relax and then some people were like do  you know about the bonfire and we're like bonfire   so apparently there's a bonfire so tracey now is  a little cold so she's gonna change she's gonna   put some long jeans on and then since you never  know we're gonna see what uh what this is all about so two hours later and one bottle of wine later  we said we were just going for a drink well yeah   it was really nice with the fire music  people dancing lots of nice people   i said it earlier but it's true like it has a good  vibe like it's a really nice spot like overall i   really like this place to do here and that's what  we have an experience at like usually we just go   like safari or beach yeah but like there's just  so much to do i love it okay but now it's bedtime time to brush our teeth and go to  bed night night no night night night good morning guys i would love  to explain to you how how well   we slept and how great everything  is but we actually went to bed   late we woke up late and breakfast ends  in eight minutes let's go see you there and we made it just in time actually i said just  in time but like you know i was like 15 to 10 and   it was still like packed there's still people  walking in yeah so very basic breakfast like   sausages bacon omelet instant coffee yeah instead  of making a pot of coffee they just have hot water   and instant coffee packets whatever i had an  omelet it was good it was an average omelette   sausages chicken sausages average chicken sausages  fruits average fruits everything was there though   yeah that's good so lerruat log resort it's a very  cool concept because basically this resort is   integrated within a mountain like on top of the  mountain spread it all around so i really like   the concept no matter where you are the view is  really really nice yeah and there's so much stuff   to do like you've seen like we did some archery we  had a really good uh nomochoma yeah that was good   um the bonfire in the evening was super cool like  if there's a really good vibe with the drinks and   everything like seriously there's just there's a  lot to do and the pool which is about to get even   better it's already great but it's about to get  better than that yeah the concepts like you can   see the bar the bar was really nice too like the  decor inside like the tree the lights and stuff   really like that yeah and overall like the food is  good it's you know i wouldn't say like it out it's   out of this world but it's it's good there's  a there's variety it's it's fresh i mean no   complaints there yeah so i think too like this  place would be great like it's it really does   have something for everyone but it also would be  great for those who want it to party as well yes   and on the negative side um basically like the  bonfire and the bar both have like pretty loud   music and i want you to understand that like we  are very we are as far as possible from those   two places there's actually cottages that are much  much closer and yesterday we left the bonfire just   past 11 and the music was still blasting and  we were able to hear it in our room but like   at some point i personally woke up at 2 30 a.m  to go to the bathroom and it was still blasting  

so i think they need to find maybe like you  know some middle ground because yes there's   people that want to stay up all night and you  know what there's nothing wrong with that but   there's also people here like with families  kids and everything that you don't want to sleep   so i feel like you know the music could be a  little bit lower and everyone would be happy   the funny part is remember when we first  walked in and there's a sign that says no   loud music yeah that is very weird it says like  that you're not allowed to have loud music in   your room but like they're going against that  rule basically so not the end of the world i mean   it wasn't crazy loud but like you know we were in  bed trying to sleep and it could have been because it's   a weekend i don't know but i just feel like they  should figure something out around that so that   they can like fully include everyone yeah and  tracey is also very mad about the instant coffee   i like my coffee in the morning and i'm  not a fan of instant coffee that's just not   my thing but overall it's still a very nice place   like i would still come back oh yeah like i would  recommend it to other people absolutely especially   i think especially people with family like because  there's so many activities and everything and like   yeah place to go and they have a spa that we never  even checked out so like for couples i think there   it could be you can also like rent bikes go on on  hikes there's different things to do around here   as well yeah well those mountains are pretty  yeah yeah pretty high that would be quite a hike   so now it's time for us to pack up and you know  start driving back to nairobi but before before   we say bye um one thing one one small thing big  thing high thing steep thing but you need it to   get the views so when you first arrived uh at the  bottom of this hill mountain or whatever you want   to call it and there's actually a warning on their  website saying like you know there's a steep hill   that is next level steep hill i was in first  gear the entire way up and the truck was working   hard like at some point yeah i  thought i wasn't gonna make it like   it is a very very steep hill so make sure you  have like a good you know four by four i'd say um   but it the plus side well if there's plus side but  like it's not it's not off-road steep though which   is good because if it was off-road it's 50-50  some some parts are paved and some parts are   like semi-off-road yeah but at least it wasn't  like the super steep parts so anyway we'll try   to show it to you because we didn't film it on  our way up we'll film it on your way on our way   down and i'm gonna overlay it right now okay  so we're leaving uh we just left the the front   gate and i'm about to test my brakes to another  level like you guys need to look ahead like you   you can't see the road this is how steep it is  there we go so yeah just something to keep in mind   so don't forget to like this video subscribe  to the channel and see you guys in the next one okay okay action action action one two three room tour i've been ready for like a long time  for 37 seconds okay you're not helping me me me so let's try this
