, NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 9 – As the new government takes over leadership, local and international investors continue to gain confidence in Kenya’s hotel and tourism industry with international hotels trooping to invest and cash in on the fast growing hospitality sector.
Hemingways Collection will in the next few weeks launch Hemingways in Nairobi.
Once it opens its doors to the public, Hemingways Karen is poised to be a key attraction for both business travellers and leisure tourists seeking a calm, serene, modern and attractive location to either carry out business or take a well deserved break from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Demand for accommodation from both local and international clients has increased, and created the rising appetite of local and global brands seeking to gain from the sector’s growth.
The multimillion 45 suite property is strategically located within the pristine Karen suburbs, on 10 acres of tastefully manicured gardens with a magnificent view of the Ngong hills.
Hemingways Nairobi becomes the newest addition to Hemingways Collection’s other properties in Watamu at the coast, and the splendid tented lodge Olseki Hemingways Mara in the exclusive Naboisho Conservancy bordering the main Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
Hemingways Nairobi butler service promises to be key selling points for this new lavish boutique hotel, with especially the seamless and personal service that will see a guest booked at the presidential suite enjoy a ‘beck and call’ treatment.
Other new hotels in Nairobi include the five-star Villa Rosa Kempinski launched in June last year, the Boma hotel and which is owned by the Kenya Red Cross launched in August and Sankara among others.
Meanwhile the Belgium-based Rezidor Hotel Group is among the brands to open five-star Radisson Blu in Upper Hill, Nairobi, in early 2014.
