Setting a new benchmark for hotels in Nairobi, Hemingway Nairobi offers the full facilities expected in a modern luxury boutique hotel. Located in Nairobi's Karen residential area and away from the hustle and bustle of the city, the hotel has magnificent views of the nearby Ngong hills and is surrounded by other tourist hot spots such as the National Museum of Kenya, Daphne Sheldrick's Animal Orphanage, craft shops, markets, restaurants, Nairobi National Park.
This 45-suite boutique hotel elevates the standard of luxury for travelers in the region. Beautiful in its symmetry and flooded with natural light, this plantation-style property is airy and spacious. Each of the 80m² suites has a private balcony overlooking the iconic silhouette of the Ngong Hills, a magical view that can also be enjoyed over sundowners at the Bar.
The service is personal and sincere, offering a luxury experience from the moment you touchdown in Kenya. Your dedicated butler will know that you prefer Earl Grey to Assam with your scones and will remember which trousers you like pressed flat and which ones need a central crease.
So while you are indulging in the spa, relaxing beside the pool, or meandering through the gardens, back in your suite, your butler will have dimmed the lights, adjusted your personalized pillows, set out your nightcap, and arranged the morning's outing down to the finest detail.
The Suites - Lofty, expansive rooms with vast, bright en-suite bathrooms and large private terraces are characteristic of the hotel's wonderful sense of space and natural light use. There are 45 high-ceilinged suites, two of which are penthouse style Presidential Suites and 43 Junior Suites culminating in vaulted beams. Muted colors and textured fabrics in ecru and taupe create an ambiance of contemporary chic while subtle touches of brass, mahogany, and leather bear reference to the classic elegance of vintage East African safaris. Beyond the balustrade of your private balcony, we've chosen for you a view of The Green Hills of Africa, as described in Hemingway's novel. Each suite is named after a famous person or places associated with Kenya, travel, writing, and exploring – will you stay in the Robert Redford Suite, the Kenyatta Suite, or the Mara Suite?
