House of Waine

SKU: 20518 Category:

An oasis of luxury and peace in the quiet Nairobi suburb of Karen, House of Waine is a family home converted into a stylish boutique hotel and makes a perfect start or end to a Kenya safari vacation. Set in a lush 2.5 acre garden with its own swimming pool, it is close to the many attractions of Karen, such as the Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre, and is an easy journey to and from Wilson Airport, where most safari flights depart. A country house atmosphere and friendly attentive staff make it a home from home away from the city bustle.

Individually decorated with themes inspired by Kenya’s diverse heritage and landscapes each of the eleven rooms has its own elegant character. Whether you prefer light and airy Pwani with its calm sea blues and greens, the soothing leaf greens of Bustani opening out into the garden,  or the  rich Maasai tones of Manyatta, all the rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable with king size beds draped in rich fabrics. All the amenities of a first class hotel are supplemented by personal touches such as home-made cookies with the in room tea and coffee facilities. Complimentary wifi and individually controlled air-conditioning blend smoothly into the contemporary decor and the spacious marble bathrooms with separate bath and rain shower are stocked with eco-friendly toiletries and thick fluffy towels.

The personalised service is a delight and, however late your flight, you are smilingly greeted with the offer of a freshly prepared meal or snack. Fabulous breakfasts and well chosen lunch and dinner menus change daily, though you only have to ask if there is another dish you’d prefer. Relax beside the curved swimming pool and listen to birdsong, sit by the open fire in the lounge with a book from the library and unwind after a long international flight, or head out to explore the many attractions in the area. For those on business there is an elegant 20-seater conference room with private terrace.

If you’re looking for a peaceful cocoon of luxury to unwind in after an exciting East African safari,  House of Waine more than delivers.
