Live in a Hemingway novel in Africa's Green Hills

Hemingways Nairobi Hotel is everything you would expect from luxurious property built on decades of experience in tailored travel. Enveloped in a sanctuary in Kenya’s capital, intricate symmetry and sophistication are coupled with warm hospitality for a cordial Kenyan welcome. 

This plantation-style boutique hotel is only 40 minutes from Nairobi’s international airport and is the latest addition to the distinguished Hemingways Collection of beach and bush. Although more urban, the sightseeing around the boutique’s surrounding area deserves a few rolls of film. Enjoy a game drive with an unusual cityscape backdrop, discover colonial heritage at the Karen Blixen Museum and visit the Giraffe Centre and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned elephants and rhinos are hand-reared.

Traditional values of discretion and convenience are inherent to East African culture and the hotel’s 45 high-ceilinged, contemporary-chic rooms, two penthouse Presidential Suites and 43 Junior Suites embody this ethos with hand-cut Italian marble, private balcony, walk-in wardrobe and expansive en-suite bathroom. Indulge in the serenity of the spa, or in the contemporary concoctions of the brasserie and patisserie while your butler addresses your every whim with bespoke service.
