This unexpectedly chic hotel in the upscale residential and embassy district of Oyster Bay is ideal for a single-night stopover during a complex East African itinerary. Eight ocean-facing guest accommodations feature a contemporary African style with indigenous textiles, dark wood furnishings, louvered shutters, a neutral color palette and tribal artifacts. Additionally, all lodgings have high ceilings, writing desks and balconies. We recommend requesting top-floor rooms for prime views of the Indian Ocean. A 50-foot lap swimming pool is flanked by a deck with daybeds in a lush and tranquil garden. Common areas include a spacious lounge-library ideal for predinner drinks and a dining room serving made-to-order dishes (meals can be taken outdoors on a covered patio or poolside, weather permitting).
