Gemma Pic

With a Kenyan father, Indian grandparents, and a Portuguese surname, travel is in my blood. I am enthralled by East Africa and would happily talk about Africa’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

Hemingways Nairobi Overview

Named after the novelist Ernest Hemingway, this is the most luxurious 5-star hotel in Nairobi and is the perfect place to start your Kenya safari from. The hotel is only a 45-minute drive from Nairobi’s international airport (Jomo Kenyatta) in the quieter and welcoming suburb name Karen, and as son as you arrive into Hemingways, you will be greeted with a welcome drink, friendly service and of course, huge smiles from all of the staff. The hotel has 45 suites which include several room and villa types to suit all types of travelers. They all have a private balcony, boasting views over the iconic Ngong Hills. Hemingways has every facility you could want – a spa, swimming pool, beautifully-kept tropical gardens, multiple lounge, dining and bar areas, and even your own personal butler. This suburb offers many excursions such as the Karen Blixen museum, the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage and the giraffe sanctuary. So whether you are looking to explore Nairobi, or just relax after your long-haul flight, Hemingways is the perfect base.
