Types of Accommodation:
Nairobi has an excellent choice of Five Class hotels and also smaller boutique style hotel accommodation, furnished apartments and guest houses. Large hotel chains include the Intercontinental , Hilton , Holiday Inn , Serena , Fairmont etc.
These hotels are equal in standard to those found all over the world; expect to have access to all the usual amenities and also real Kenyan warmth and hospitality. The smaller guest houses and cottages are also well worth investigating; some have historical and stylish African charm which will make your stay unique and memorable.
Staying in a Kenyan tented camp is nothing like camping: this is 5 star luxury in the wild! Your tent will have everything that you would expect in a “proper” hotel or lodge including a bathroom with flush toilet, a shower and wash facilities.
Sitting on your veranda looking out to the open savanna, it’s easy to connect with the natural environment all around. Tented camps are perfect for experiencing the African bush in comfort, and the camps tend to be small – with between 4 to 30 tents. You can expect to find a pool, restaurant, bar, attentive service and great food.
Kenyan guesthouses are less common to find than the large glitzy hotels that are popular with many visitors. They are there though, and often provide a cheaper alternative to the larger places that have more amenities. Guesthouses tend to be smaller and less expensive than larger hotels. They also may offer a more personal service because of their size. They usually offer a less expensive alternative for those wanting a quieter time with a more personal touch.
If you don’t feel like staying at a hotel while visiting Kenya, then renting a house might be just what you want. We have a great choice of inland and beachside dwellings to suit all budgets, so you can stay wherever you want for as long as you want.
Perfect for family holidays or for groups of friends to get together on a fun filled holiday in the sun! Please note that if you’re looking for somewhere to rent at the coast for Christmas you need to book WAY ahead (perhaps even a year in some cases) and prices increase tremendously at this time.
Hotels are abundant in Kenya, where you kind find the hotel that is right for you. Look through the pictures, reviews, and locations of our hotel listings and find a place to stay that suits you.
Kenya has some superb safari lodges found in spectacular destinations. Many are built in a traditional African style that fit right in with the environment. There are plenty to choose from in the Aberdares , Maasai Mara , Samburu , Tsavo , Amboseli etc.
The lodges range from rustic style Tree Houses on stilts overlooking salt licks and water holes, to large wooden fortresses overlooking mile upon mile of open plains. Usually they are built in harmony with the local environment and provide great viewing and high levels of comfort.
Spas and Retreats
We all love to be pampered, and let´s face it if someone else can make us look beautiful and feel good about ourselves we should surely jump at the chance!
So whether you’re here on holiday or live here all year round, there are spas, yoga retreats, detox centres and salons in various locations around Kenya which can help you be a better you.
Luxury tented camps are found all over Kenya, but low budget campsites are sometimes a little harder to find. With careful planning; however, it’s quite possible to organise an exciting, affordable holiday in some really beautiful locations.
Even in Kenya’s remote regions, camping facilities can usually be found, and they offer a great way of exploring a very diverse country by car all on a shoe-string budget.
Kenya is a hub for a NGO’s and UN Organisations for the whole of East Africa. It offers some wonderful venues for hosting large scale international delegations down to small friendly business meetings.
Most of the large hotels have excellent facilities either in Nairobi or at the coast. Alternatively, why not try taking your workforce up country to a tented camp in the Bush or perhaps incorporate a team-building weekend away with some fun outdoor activities.
There are some wonderful Country Clubs in Kenya. From the Muthaiga Club with its historical significance to a number of other interesting and well managed clubs, many clubs exude colonial charm, fabulous resources and high standards.
Most Country Clubs have excellent golf courses. Some are private members clubs so you will have to make sure that they are open to non-members if you want to use their facilities. Some of them insist that you belong to another club that has a reciprocal agreement for its members.
Furnished, Serviced Apartments
Perhaps you’re moving to Kenya with a short-term contract, or need somewhere to call home until your shipment and/or family arrive. If this is you, a fully-furnished, serviced apartment might be just what you need.
Companies often like to rent serviced apartments as an alternative to placing visitors in hotels. There is a good range of high class, fully-furnished and serviced apartments in Nairobi and also at the coast. Rentals usually go from 1 month to up to a 1 year.
