House of Waine

Top choice hotel in Kenya
Image by

Sophistication and style are the hallmarks of this stunning boutique offering. Every room is different according to its theme – the slate-grey colour scheme in the Tembo room is a standout – and the atmosphere is one of soothing, perfectly conceived spaces. The garden is a real oasis and it's little wonder that this has fast become one of Nairobi's premier addresses.
