Fairmont The Norfolk

Fairmont The Norfolk

An Iconic Retreat in the Heart of the City - A beloved landmark dating back to 1904, Fairmont The Norfolk has played a pivotal role in Kenya’s historical legacy, notably as the town and later the modern city of Nairobi grew around the property. A hidden gem with alluring old-world charm and elegant contemporary design, Fairmont The Norfolk offers guests a sophisticated retreat in the city with easy access to key business districts of Gigiri, Westlands, and Upper Hill in addition to leisure hubs and the burgeoning Nairobi art scene.

The hotel boasts 27 luxurious suites and 143 rooms set around tranquil tropical gardens, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and a health club with a fitness center and indulgent spa facilities. The rooms combine classic elegance and modern design with discreet technology. Many rooms offer breathtaking elevated views of the landscaped courtyard. Simultaneously, the signature suites are an excellent choice for guests seeking to experience luxury intertwined with the city's rich history.

For over a century, business has been discussed, and deals struck on this iconic heritage hotel's verandah. The tradition continues as The Norfolk remains the ideal meetings and events venue, now with 8 distinctive spaces able to accommodate 200 delegates. The venue is ideal for an executive board meeting, large convention, corporate dinner, or casual business breakfast and lunch in the restaurant. Elegant spaces are also available for intimate celebrations and lavish soirees.

Fairmont The Norfolk offers superb dining options with local produce, authentic flavors, and varied menu choices, including organically sourced beef, fresh seafood, and vegan dishes. The award-winning Tatu restaurant offers warm and attentive service in a contemporary African themed setting. At the same time, The Lord Delamere Terrace, once Nairobi’s most famous meeting place, retains all its classic charm as an all-day dining restaurant serving one of the city's best breakfast buffets. An elegant lounge bar overlooking the garden; Cin Cin welcomes guests to sip on signature cocktails and discover the extensive array of wines, whiskies, and premium alcoholic beverages alongside the exquisite tapas menu T Lounge offers the perfect spot for afternoon tea accompanied by traditional delights.

Whether at the start or end of a Kenyan safari adventure or passing through on business, Fairmont The Norfolk, an 18 km drive from the Jomo Kenyatta international airport, is a peaceful haven for all guests.
