Beautiful safe luxury hotel

We stayed in Hemingway’s for two nights before heading to the Masai Mara. We were there with a group of 11 ranging from 11 yrs old to 80. The rooms are large and very well appointed with beautiful and spacious bathrooms. The bedding is very nice and the balconies are spacious and include comfy furniture to lounge on. The grounds are very well kept. The pool was very nice though the temperature was cold (i don’t think it’s heated.). The service was great and the breakfast was outstanding and included in the room rate. We had a special Christmas concert performed by a local boys choir which was very special. I definitely recommend this hotel for anyone. The only downside was slow service in the restaurant on Christmas Eve but it wasn’t too bad. Lovely property with strong attention to detail.

Awesome Dinner Night at Hemingways
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Fabulous dining experience. The ambience was calm and serene for an evening out. The lighting and the seating arrangement made it easy for the conversations to flow all round. The food and the service from the staff was fantastic...plenty of selections for the foodie in you. I would recommend it highly for couples or family get-togethers.

This was a delightful visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was good and in general we had a great time. We stayed here for two days prior to going out to the safari camps and again on the return trip prior to going to the airport for the trip home.

Out of Africa Amazing
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

First stop in Kenya was Nairobi and I stayed at the Hemingways. As soon as you go through the doors, you enter a different world. The staircase is beautifull, the views amazing. Very silent. The rooms are named after a person, I was at the Meryl Streep Suite in the Hollywood Wing and it was totally Out of Africa. The design of the room was beautiful, four post bed, bathtub, and an old fashion trunk, when you press a button the Tv Comes out. The view form the balcony is outstanding. The service was impecable, dinning was delicious. An incredible first stop of the trip. I hope to return.
