Luxury hotel Hemingways Collection has taken over the management of Eden Nairobi, making it part of its portfolio of luxury properties.
The family-owned five-star luxury boutique hotel group now takes over the nine-bedroom property built and designed by artists Tonio and Anna Trzebinski.
It will be renamed Hemingways Eden, joining Hemingways Nairobi, Ol Seki Hemingways Mara, and Hemingways Watamu.
“The management takeover of Hemingways Eden is a strategic move to diversify our portfolio and expand our offering,” Hemingways Group CEO Ross Evans said.
“It is also an opportunity for us to manage a unique and iconic property in a premier location in the heart of Karen, Nairobi. The standards of service will be consistent to those of our existing properties – Hemingways Nairobi, Hemingways Watamu and Ol Seki Hemingways Mara.”
Eden is known for its art and antiquities, which attract hundreds of visitors annually.
“Being a creative, I feel that this incredible hotel needs to be managed and run by top Kenyan professionals to mirror its exceptional qualities in the service delivered to the guests, and I am so honoured to announce that Hemingways Collection will be taking Eden under its wing and making it part of its portfolio of luxury properties,” Trebinski said.
“From one family-owned establishment to another, Eden will retain its unique offerings whilst elevating the experience to a new level.”
Kenya’s hospitality sector continues to exhibit growth in performance, expansion, new acquisitions, and developments.
Renewed optimism in the hospitality sector is attributed to the robust signs of recovery and resilience from the effects of the pandemic.
The W Hospitality Group’s Hotel Chain Development Pipelines in Africa 2022 report highlighted that 24 global hotel brands are considering developing new facilities in Kenya, bringing the number of new hotel rooms to 3,155 in 2022.
