The Sun Africa Hotels; a Kenyan Gem

When you walk into the Sun Africa Hotel- and you should- it is like walking into a fairlytale. A lush wonderland of food, ambience, drinks and the very best hospitality has to offer.

At least that was my experience at their Austen Place in Nairobi.

I’m lucky to have been to a dozen places, vouched by travellers and enthusiasts as the creme de la creme of hospitality, but seated at the Sun Africa, writing over lunch I felt like someone who just discovered their arms.

You know that feeling?

When you suddenly start seeing something that has been there for so long, something so ethereal, hidden a wink away?

Allow you to indulge you. Tell you why this is my new favourite place?

1. The decor, the lighting, the textures and the general vibe is the stuff you catch in movies and interior decor documentaries. Quaint and modern, lush and warm. It is almost dreamy. Like a poem in a far-away castle.

2. It its an architectural marvel. And for someone who is fascinated by architecture and style. This place leaps at you, like a mystery, begging to be touched, and uncovered and laid out.

This looks like it was commisioned by Michelangelo, or Raphael Bernini. Ok Kidding. But seated here, taking in the roman-esque nuances, such serenity in the middle of the city is hard to come by, even for a price..

3. The dining area area is lush and expansive, featuring the dreamy and poetry-worthy ionic style that catapulted the Roman Empire to the pantheon of architectural greats. Seated here, enjoying your scrumptious eats, you will feel like you are seated in Rome. Doing as Romans do. Haha.

As section of the restaurant. Because dining is a lot more than just food.

4. And because these people at Sun Africa understand that at some point, you made need to hold meetings away from your office, they have the perfect conference rooms.

Meeting rooms so well done, you’ll feel like you are lounging at the oval office.

5. And if you love outdoors, there are just the perfect spots for you to relax. To stop and think.

5. It would be sacrilegious to forget about their outdoor poolside.  Especially when the pool looks like this.  And especially, when the pool’s background looks like that.
