Hemingways is the ultimate luxurious hotel. On arrival, guests are appointed a personal and attentive butler to make a stay a truly memorable one. The expansive and delicate suites with enormous en-suite bathrooms are a luxurious haven, aside from the busyness of Nairobi’s city centre. Although it’s on the higher end of the price range, the experience at Hemingways will be an unforgettable one and guests absolutely adore it.


Situated in the chic suburb of Karen, Hemingways is less than an hour’s drive from Nairobi’s international airport. This exclusive community offers a range of things to do such as the Giraffe Centre, the Daphne Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for orphan elephants, and the Karen Blixen Museum. There are also a number of craft workshops, handmade jewellery shops and beautiful boutiques for a day of shopping if needs be.


The entrance to Hemingways immediately shows off its degree of elegance it is famous for, as two marbled staircases mirror each other, shaping the huge, delicately designed reception. The hotel has an array of amenities, including an outdoor pool, a spa, brassiere, a stylish bar and lounge area and a restaurant with exquisite food and dining. The stunning rooms and suites are set away from the main area in a three-storey modern building. Guests are escorted by their butler to the entrance of their room, in a white leather golf buggy, of course.


Hemingways has 45 spacious and high-ceilinged rooms, of which two are penthouse and presidential suites. The rooms are contemporary, with subtle tones of brass and leather, referring back to the class elegance of vintage East African safaris. The bathrooms are very spacious, lined with marble and glass, giving the room a bright and airy feeling. Additionally, the free-standing bath is the ultimate sophisticated centerpiece.
