House of Waine

Nairobi, Kenya

Silver price level

Mango Opinion

House of Waine is a nice retreat after long days of flying with a heated swimming pool, gorgeous bathrooms with shower, bath and fluffy robes. The atmosphere can be a little formal and lacking cohesiveness. The locaton is good near the tourist sights in Nairobi which include the Giraffe Center, Karen Blixen Museum and Sheldrick elephant orphanage.

House of Waine is an 11-bedroom luxury boutique hotel on 2.5 acres that blends the elegance of gracious living with the spirit of modern Africa in an exclusive and serene setting. Our aim is to provide our guests with an experience that exceeds all their expectations of city hotels and is punctuated by personalized, friendly and excellent service and cuisine in beautiful surroundings.

House of Waine is a family owned and run property and this is reflected in the name Waine which is made up of the initials of the family members. Originally a family House of Waine, it was lovingly converted to a boutique hotel and eventually opened in 2004. The interior design takes its cue from the matriarch of the family and is imbued with a timeless elegance much like her.

There are many interesting places to see in the city of Nairobi. Visitors can visit the baby elephants and rhinos at the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, feed giraffes at the Giraffe Center, or tour the Karen Blixen Museum and see the inner workings of a colonial era coffee plantation. After a long day exploring the city, guests can relax by the secluded pool that's set amid lush gardens.
