    Just 40 minutes’ drive from Nairobi’s international airport and set between Nairobi National Park and the foot of the Ngong Hills, Hemingways Nairobi Hotel is located to the South West of the city in the peaceful suburb of Karen just 15 km from central Business District.

    Hemingway’s Nairobi is ideally located to several of Nairobi’s major tourist attractions so before you fly off to the Maasai Mara or to the Indian Ocean’s ivory sands, spare a few moments to enjoy Nairobi’s sights and scenes. Stop for a trip down memory lane with a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum made famous from the award winning film Out of Africa. Enjoy a close up view of the endangered giraffes at the Giraffe Centre, whilst nearby the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust hand rears orphaned elephant and rhinos and rehabilitate them so that they can re-enter the wild. Enjoy a safari in the city as you touchdown in Kenya or for a final gamedrive before you depart and shop for those magical Kenyan souvenirs for friends and family back home. All this is possible just a short distance from Hemingways Nairobi.

    Our Suites

    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?

    Dinning

    With a Hollywood themed décor and serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Brasserie offers a wide choice of international dishes with modern European and South Asian flavours.

    Savour dishes for every appetite at Hemingways Nairobi – hearty breakfasts with pastries and bread, freshly baked in our bakery every day, traditional English afternoon teas with delicious scones and classic finger sandwiches, our special In-House made pasta and our signature Josper oven – an indoor barbeque to produce the finest steaks. We offer light bites to be enjoyed in the bar, on the terrace or at the pool and our 24 hour in room dining service offers guests the chance to relax in their suite in complete privacy.

    Hemingway’s Executive Chef focuses on simply cooked free-range products using the freshest ingredients sourced directly from Kenyan farms. Throughout your stay at Hemingways Nairobi, our chefs are at your service so if you can’t find what you are looking for on any of our menus nothing is too much trouble to prepare.

    Breakfast

    Hemingway’s chefs have spent years researching breakfast to make sure you get what you need to start your day. They work on the premise that breakfast is the last meal that you eat when you leave a hotel and want that final memory to conjure up the wonderful taste of that departure.

    Seasonal fresh fruits, healthy cereals, freshly squeezed juices, homemade pastries and elaborate Viennoisseries, and cold cuts are served buffet style whilst the ‘a la Carte’ hot breakfast menu offers eggs galore, smoked salmon bagels and a stacked bacon sandwich to stop all conversation.

    Lunch

    Hemingway’s Brasserie menu caters to all lunchtime tastes and appetites with a wide selection of soups and appetizers, healthy salads, hearty sandwiches and juicy burgers. For those guests wanting something a little more extensive, the Josper oven is always burning so a sumptuous char grilled fillet steak can be a welcome temptation. Sit back, relax and enjoy our world class service while taking in the famous views of the Ngong Hills.

    Dinner

    Refined food with a relaxed feel, the Brasserie terrace is the perfect place for a relaxing dinner among friends and family. Weekly seasonal specials, such as the Watamu prawn masala and ginger crab, supplement our Brasserie menu and offer our guests a memorable dining experience. Our extensive wine list, featuring old and new world wines, delivers the perfect accompaniment to signature steaks grilled under the Josper oven whilst the in house made pastas provide warming fare during the rare chilly nights in Nairobi. Refreshing appetizers like the exotic Hemingways sushi plate and the more traditional butternut soup offer a lovely entrée to dining in the Brasserie whilst delicious desserts and a sumptuous selection of local cheeses provide the perfect ending.

    Afternoon Tea

    The terrace is the place to be between 3 o’clock and 5 o’clock everyday, as we serve a traditional English afternoon tea. Out comes the cake stand, burgeoning with handcrafted miniature cakes, gateaux opera, fruit delice, mini-éclairs and fruit tartlets. Lavish your freshly baked scones, warm from the oven, with clotted cream, homemade strawberry jam and lemon curd. The finger sandwiches offer classic fillings on white and brown bread. There is an exotic selection of teas and infusions to compliment your tasty treats; and why not add some fizz to your afternoon tea with a glass of sparkling Prosecco.

    Hemingways Bar

    The décor is intimate yet upmarket with a feel of the private gent’s club; leather Chesterfield sofas on fine Italian marble in front of the fireplace all under the eye of the master barmen. As if that wasn’t enough one can sit back and relax on the bar terrace and take in the views of the Ngong Hills while savoring that Single Malt and a cigar. Lighter, modern flavors characterize our fashionable cocktail menu as we pair fresh exotic flavors with soaring spirits and our wine cellar offers a selection of 50 bins from across the globe.

    The Wine Cellar

    The glass enclosed Wine Cellar seats up to 8 and stocks a selection of Old and New World wines to be discovered in the tastings organised in the cellar’s comfortable setting. For that special occasion and the ultimate private dining experience, unique tasting menus expertly created by our Executive Chef, can be enjoyed at the Chef’s Table.

    Special Occassions

    Enjoy custom made menus from Hemingway’s Executive Chef specially tailored for your special occasion.

    From themed buffets, cocktails and canapes to set menus, we take great pride in tailoring the menu to suit your individual preferences and dietary requirements.

    Local Produce

    Wherever possible Hemingway ensures that we source locally and support producers of high quality ingredients for use in our menus.

    All Hemingway’s fruit and vegetable suppliers are scrutinized intensively to ensure they deliver the freshest, healthiest and most flavorful products.

The Spa menu combines both French and custom designed treatments crafted from locally sourced ingredients and is the perfect place to rediscover your senses after a long flight or a dusty safari.

    Hemingway’s range of treatments include an aromatic, intensive and mineral rich body wrap formulated  to detox and relax you, exfoliating rituals using coconut, cinnamon and coffee which leave your skin feeling revitalized and silky smooth and a selection of traditional massage techniques offering holistic therapy for the body, mind and spirit.

    Treatments

    The Spa at Hemingways Nairobi offers a collection of unique facial and body treatments that are linked with the beneficial effects of aromatic products aimed at both women and men. These bespoke treatments help nurture and maintain the youthfulness of the face and body and ensure wellbeing, relaxation, balance and results.

    We have an exclusive selection of Hemingways Spa packages that will take you into a world where time is left outside the door and you journey through our face and body therapies of pure indulgence “tailor made to suit you”.

    All our Facial and Body treatments begin with a hot towel foot cleanse and “Initial Touch Ritual” and we encourage you to spend half an hour in our relaxation areas post treatment with herbal tea and a fresh fruit platter.
