About The Lodge
The leafy suburb of Karen has long been the city’s most desirable address, making it the natural location for Hemingways Nairobi. This Nairobi hotel is within easy reach of both of the capital city’s airports, and yet a world away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds.
Nairobi is rather like the Rome of East Africa, at least in the sense that all roads – and more importantly – all flights lead there … a fact that makes it an important stopping-off and transit point for safari travellers arriving in Kenya.
But Nairobi is much more than that: it’s a vibrant, modern African city with many stories to tell, and a past populated with fascinating figures, such as the writers Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen.
And what better lodgings from which to explore this city than a luxury boutique hotel? In that, Hemingways Nairobi really delivers. Its location allows guests to either immerse themselves in the rhythms of the city, or take a step back and enjoy a tranquil oasis that’s in keeping with the sense of special seclusion that an East African safari brings.
The hotel’s 45 luxurious suites are equipped with all modern conveniences, but also some treasures that seem delightfully old school, including Egyptian cotton bedlinen and butler service.
Time at Hemingways Nairobi can be spent actively, in the fully equipped gym or outdoor swimming pool; alternatively (and perhaps preferably) opt for a more leisurely experience in the hotel spa, or by trying each of the many dining options, ranging from poolside snacks to the exclusive Chef’s Table.
The thrills of the city are just a short drive away, but the hotel is also a wonderful place in which to recuperate after an international flight and anticipate safari adventures – or relive them over a drink in the bar before returning to the concrete jungle.
