An inside look at Kenya’s most popular hotels

The “T” Lounge – Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel

norfolkAs with everything at the The Norfolk Hotel, the T Lounge is decidedly nostalgic. The relaxation area ‘beckons the individual, to pause, take refuge and relax in its elegantly Colonial seating space and surrounding. Whether it is the morning, afternoon, or evening, the sumptuous and refined décor lulls the guest into an inviting classical yet lifestyle zone.’ With furnishings that remind you of a rich old uncle’s study, it’s your best bet if you are looking for something ‘old-school.’

The Balcony Bar – Villa Rosa Kempinski

balcony-bar-kempThe Balcony Bar knows no modesty in its description, ‘mixing informal ambience with plush surroundings and entertainment on certain evening’s by selected performers, it is recognised as the place to be seen.’ Apart from offering a little exclusivity, the masculine air of the lounge means that you can look like a boss while you pass the time over some Martini variations.

Suites – Sarova Whitesands

sarova-whitesands‘Discover a life of comfort, design and luxury,’ Sarova Whitesands starts. Compared to other entries on this list Whitesands lies on the minimalist side of things. No overstuffed chairs, or frills, just white beaches that stretch for miles.
