The grande dame of Nairobi, Fairmont The Norfolk has been at the centre of the city’s high life for 110 years now. Today it offers an oasis of peace in the middle of the bustling city that has grown up around it, welcoming safari and business travellers alike with professional and dedicated service and all the five star amenities you’d expect. Built around several lush courtyard gardens with a choice of restaurants and bars, its historic buildings have been renovated over the years to a high standard and include a spa and health club adjoining the secluded outdoor swimming pool.
A wide choice of 170 rooms and suites are arranged in several wings around a series of leafy courtyards and gardens.
Choose a view over the original courtyard or the fountain garden with a private patio, where birdsong accompanies a morning cup of coffee, or go for a quiet room overlooking the pool garden at the back of the hotel. The recently refurbished Delamere wing also offers interleading rooms for families. All the en-suite rooms combine historic ambience with contemporary comfort, tastefully furnished with timeless charm and all the conveniences of air-conditioning, digital safes, tea and coffee facilities and wifi (complimentary when you join the Fairmont Presidents Club).
Dine in style at award-winning Tatu where creative menus bring gourmet twists to steakhouse and seafood classics amid contemporary elegance. Or lunch al fresco on the Lord Delamere Terrace, steeped in history, where themed buffet lunches move through the week from Mediterranean to Indian and American fare, and a wide selection of breakfasts are served daily. Then the glamorous CinCin bar serves decadent cocktails and champagne, while guests relaxing by the heated outdoor swimming pool can enjoy light lunches and snacks from the Poolside Restaurant without moving from their comfortable sun lounger.
Full conference facilities serve the business traveller, who can unwind at the health club and spa with a massage or work out in the fully equipped gym. Excellent service and a thoroughly professional team demonstrate that the Fairmont lives up to its historic position as one of Nairobi’s top hotels.
