    Set in the exclusive Nairobi residential suburb of Karen, between Nairobi National Park and the foot of the Ngong Hills, Hemingways Nairobi is an exclusive boutique hotel far from the bustle of central Nairobi. An all-suite property providing full butler service, gourmet restaurant, a brasserie and a bar, it is perfectly placed for trips to Nairobi National Park and the capital.

    The architectural theme is that of a Southern States – Plantation Style Luxury Residence, and in keeping with the residential nature of the suburb in which is situated, the buildings have consciously been kept to 2 stories.

    The central public areas and Porte Cochere are reminiscent of a Plantation Style Manor house, with the bedroom suites located on the North-West boundary maximising each units view over the manicured gardens, to the Ngong Hills in the distance.

    Materials used have been carefully selected with imported Italian marble, as well as hardwoods sourced from sustainable forests. Both the public areas as well as the suites, have a spacious feeling of generous space which is enhanced by using generous vertical volumes.

    Hemingways Nairobi has a sophisticated and tranquil ambiance. Each of the 45 suites ranging in size from 80 m² to 160 m², all with walk-in dressing rooms and a terrace with magnificent views of the Ngong Hills.

    The Conference facilities offer the coveted combination of privacy and proximity to the city. They are equipped with the latest communication and presentation technology, the meeting rooms are a stylish venue for board meetings and away-days. The total seclusion of the  private dining room is an inspiring arena for business networking or in-house discussions. The highest level of functionality for instant global communication and the support of the efficient concierge facilitates work away from the office. Global corporate travellers will find the hotel’s high-tech amenities make this a productive and professional place from which to conduct business.

    The State-Of-The-Art Spa and Wellness Centre features a Gymnasium, Hairdresser with Pedicure & Manicure Facilities, as well as four Specialist Spa Treatment Rooms, Relaxation Areas, as well as Saunas and Steam rooms for men and women.
