From July 18th onwards, travellers have another option for their stay in Nairobi, Kenya. Tune Hotel Nairobi is the latest kid on the block, costing an estimated US$29million for the 280-room facility. This establishment is strategically located in the suburb of Westlands with easy access to local business parks, city central business and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. With strong international hospitality experience acquired, the hotel aims to promote a refreshing and rejuvenating stay within its fresh and stylish rooms. The accommodation takes up 11 floors, each offering something unique for various visitors.
Rooms come in the form of double, twin, triple and family type so that there is something suitable for everyone. Each guest room is equipped with an en-suite thermostatic power shower, in-room thermostatically controlled comfort cooling and most important, quality bed and linen for a good night’s rest. These are essentials in achieving an undisturbed sleep and, when paired with fixed elements such as a high quality of service, security and design, the hotel aims to provide the best it can within an affordable range. The rate savvy customers are the bulk spenders in the region, and hence, form up the main market potential.
On the ground floor, expect to find the 164-seater Utamu Casual Dining Restaurant, serving up a wide spread of continental cuisine. Grab a quick bite within the Grab & Go Coffee Shop which offers sandwiches, salads, paninis and drinks – all available for dining in or taking out. Crowning the building are two rooftop bars that offer fantastic views over the city and countryside. Although both Kilele Rooftop Lounge and Tusker Lite Sky Bar offer drinks all day, the latter also provides live sporting telecast from around the world. The hotel is also strategically located within the hot spots in town, some of which are a mere 5km away.
Electric Avenue is a quiet city street in Woodvale Grove by day, but transforms into a party haven at night with more than 30 international and local bars coming to life. Shopaholics will be pleased to pay a visit to Sarit Centre Shopping Mall, a local shopping town placed under one roof or if you have a thing for designer goods and cafes, drop by Westgate Shopping Mall for the best retail experience within East Africa. Heritage buffs will love exploring the National Museums of Kenya and MICE planners should have their eyes on the Kenya International Conference Centre, an iconic building within Nairobi’s skyline.
