Beautiful in its symmetry and flooded with natural light, this plantation-style property is airy and spacious. Each of the Hemingway’s Nairobi 80m² suites have a private balcony overlooking the iconic silhouette of the Ngong Hills, a magical view which can also be enjoyed over sundowners at the Bar.The Hemingway’s Nairobi 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.


Lofty, expansive rooms with vast, bright en-suite bathrooms and large private terraces are characteristic of the hotel’s wonderful sense of space and use of natural light. 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 of our Suites is named after a famous person or place associated with Kenya, travel, writing and exploring – will you be staying in the Robert Redford Suite, the Kenyatta Suite or the Mara Suite?
