A modern concept hotel imbued with an African flavour and incorporating innovative features to suit the needs of the business and leisure traveller is set to open up in Nairobi in 10 months.
Tamarind Tree Hotel, says its owner, Tamarind Group, shall be on the grounds of its famous meat-eaters den, Carnivore, on Lang’ata Road.
Tamarind, in a media release on the project expected to be ready in the first half of 2016, says “The 162-room hotel will deliver 4-star service at 3-star prices and will have all the amenities of a modern hotel: spacious rooms, excellent free wi-fi, satellite TV, business and conferencing facilities plus a gym and heated lap pool. The public areas will be a blend of social, work and relaxation zones with a 24-hour ‘grab and go’ food duka along with all day dining and bars. The world renowned Carnivore will be an additional attraction that can be accessed by way of a nature trail through the expansive grounds of the property.”
Tamarind Tree Hotel, says its owner, “will offer a unique experience in Nairobi and will be excellent value for money” as it shall be “perfectly situated between Nairobi’s two airports and only four kilometres from the city centre.”
