There’s a distinct touch of colonial splendour about this Fairmont Hotels icon in the city of Nairobi. Built in 1904 it has been regularly updated to underpin the group’s inimitable standards of service and comfort. Guest rooms and suites are replete with every modern amenity including private en-suite marble bathrooms, plasma screen televisions and, in some of the most recently renovated accommodations, multimedia hubs and rainfall showers encased in frameless glass cubicles. The who’s who of Nairobi head for high tea in the elegant Tea Room, while the hip crowd reserve their places at Tatu, the award-winning American-style steak house or the Lord Delamere Terrace, the chic all day dining rendezvous serving classic dishes from continental to Asian, or Cin Cin Bar, a permanent fixture on the Nairobi social scene offering delectable light fare menu and a selection of signature cocktails. There’s a health club with gym, sauna and steam room within the tropical landscaped grounds, along with a heated outdoor swimming pool and pool bar. In additional to its art gallery, the nearby Nairobi National Museum has botanical gardens and a nature trail.
