Located on the outskirts of Nairobi, in the peaceful suburb of Langata, bordering the Giraffe Sanctuary.
The location itself is completely unique with warthog, parrots, peacocks and monkeys freely coming and going through the garden. Often lions and hyenas can be heard from the proximity of the incredible Nairobi National Park - the only major city in the world to share spaces with wildlife.
Once a grand private residence and art studio, the hotel has been cleverly redesigned to offer a choice of accommodation in the main house, or in the separate studio apartments. Surrounding it are huge wooded gardens, where monkeys, warthogs and parrots roam freely. This new oasis is very peaceful, despite being near the action, and is within easy access of a number of historic attractions and wildlife sanctuaries. It's the perfect place to unwind before or after your Kenyan safari.
The main house, with three bedrooms and a loft, is a great sole-use option. The spacious downstairs living area is open plan, with a huge fireplace, original artwork on the walls, solid wooden dining furniture and comfortable couches. It has a retro feel – contemporary splashes of colour blend with natural wooden floors and chunky Kenyan carved artefacts. Outside, the shaded veranda offers an idyllic spot for al fresco dining, or simply enjoying the beautiful gardens.
The original artist's studio has been converted into three light and airy double-storey apartments, and two roomy suites on the first floor. All have en-suite bathrooms, and are elegantly furnished in classic colonial style with soft natural tones and colourful modern touches.Dark woods, artisanal furniture and original artworks abound. Both houses have expansive shared lounge areas, open-plan with fireplaces.
The perfect location for exploring Nairobi. Nairobi National Park brings a plethora of wildlife into unique proximity to a large city; feeding the giraffe is unmissable! Daphe Schldrick Elephant orphanage is also nearby!
