I enjoyed several meals here, including a wonderful dinner of beef fillet with Bernaise sauce and wonderful fresh vegetables. Still dreaming about it.

The end of a fortnight's adventure. Looking rather like tidy backpackers - we expected to be refused entry. The staff were an absolute delight and the setting is soooo elegant.

Besides that, the idea of no receptionist but each guest having a butler (who is available 24 hours) is amazing. Besu cuisine/dining area. The greenery is perfect. I am a lover of the free spa complimentary - I visit twice a... More

We visited the Hemingway's with my husband for lunch . The experience was lively with the staff being extra attentive. The food was great with nice portion servings. The one thing that stands out is the ambiance you actually forget for a moment that your still in the busy Nairobi city. I will definetly be visiting again.
