A warm welcome to Hemingways Nairobi. A luxury 5* boutique hotel, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional guest experiences and service, ensuring the utmost comfort and luxury.

This 45-suite boutique hotel elevates the standard of luxury for travellers in the region. Beautiful in its symmetry and flooded with natural light, this plantation-style property is airy and spacious. Each of our 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.

Our 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.

Climate
& weather

High on a hilltop near the equator, Nairobi and its surroundings enjoy a temperate climate most of the year. At an altitude of 1700m or 5500ft. humidity is very low and nights are cool.

The summer months are sunny and hot but not unbearably sweltering whilst the winters are mild but never shivering cold. There are two monsoons and rainfall is moderate; the wettest months of the year are April and May, when days are typically cloudy with downpours. There are four seasons but these are not always distinct with the rains sometimes early and often late.

Destination

Nairobi

Just 40 minutes’ drive from Nairobi’s international airport and set between Nairobi National Park and the foot of the Ngong Hills, Hemingways Nairobi is located to the South West of the city in the peaceful suburb of Karen. It is generally believed that the suburb was named after Karen Blixen, the Danish author of Out of Africa; her farm was located just 2 minutes’ drive from the hotel.

Major tourist attractions are within close proximity to the hotel including the Nairobi National Park, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, famous for rehabilitating orphaned elephants, and the Giraffe Sanctuary. Hemingways Nairobi is also well positioned for business travellers visiting Kenya with excellent transport links to Jomo Kenyatta and Wilson Airports and easy access to the CBD.
