The colonial-style buildings of this resort house 45 spacious suites. The property offers views of the forested Ngong Hills — of Karen Blixen fame — 18 miles west of Nairobi’s international airport. Handsome and well-appointed rooms, decorated with framed black-and-white photographs, have vaulted ceilings, comfortable sitting areas and personal butlers. The brasserie-style restaurant serving European and South Asian fare uses fresh ingredients from local farms when possible, accompanied by wines from an extensive list. Additional public spaces include a spa, a sundeck, a small oval swimming pool and a contemporary, clubby bar. Overall, this hotel has an idyllic setting, a friendly staff and obliging service.
