Hemingways Collection takes over management of Eden Nairobi

Hemingways Collection, the family-owned group of five-star luxury hotels in Kenya, announced  that it will add Eden Nairobi to its portfolio.

Eden Nairobi, a recent winner in the Fodor’s Finest Hotels list, is a tranquil boutique hotel set in a four-acre plot on the edge of the Giraffe Sanctuary forest that immediately connects guests to their location, and offers a peaceful yet wildly enchanting escape from the bustling city. Located in the leafy suburb of Karen, Eden Nairobi is equal parts urban sanctuary, living gallery and luxury hotel, where guests can indulge in their creative side and feel they have arrived in Africa from the moment they land. The nine-bedroom property is one of the most unique getaways in Africa, built and designed by artists Tonio and Anna Trzebinski, originally as a family home. The property will be renamed Hemingways Eden, joining Hemingways Nairobi, Ol Seki Hemingways Mara, and Hemingways Watamu in the collection by 1 December 2022.

Eden Nairobi was the first of Anna Trzebinski’s creations, showcasing her distinctive style of layering textures and mediums with experiences, all with very distinctive African DNA. Her designs come alive in every corner of the home and in the art and cultural experiences she can provide for guests staying at Hemingways Eden. Filled with art and antiquities, the hotel will remain a hub for art and culture and is the ideal spot to immerse oneself in Kenyan culture and contemporary Nairobi in a unique way.

Over the next two months the property will transition to become Hemingways Eden, with business continuing as usual, retaining the team of staff in place. In time, Hemingways Collection will invest in the property whilst channelling its original artistic approach on design and atmosphere and maintaining its spirit as a truly unique place to stay in Nairobi. Guests will enjoy the extensive private collection of original contemporary artworks that features in each of the bedrooms, split across the Main House and the Studio. This includes work that the Trzebinski family has created or collected over their lifetime of travels and one-of-a-kind artifacts.

Given the property was designed as a family home, the accommodation lends itself perfectly for families and small groups to enjoy together, with dining options including the open plan drawing and dining rooms of the Main House and Studio. There will also be the option to hire the house exclusively. Alternatively, dining takes place at The Deck, overlooking the small lake and neighbouring forest, providing the perfect place for a cup of coffee, a sundowner or an authentically Kenyan dinner with friends.

Rooms at Hemingways Eden will start from USD $675. The Main House and the Studio will also be available for exclusive hire in the future. www.hemingways-collection.com
