To celebrate the re-opening of its iconic properties, Fairmont Hotels and Resorts Kenya has announced the launch of a new itinerary that comprises three destinations in the group’s portfolio.

These historical properties, which have been lovingly and authentically restored to their former grandeur following a full refurbishment, have been designed with conservation at their heart. The guest experience team at Fairmont The Norfolk has devised a renewed activity program for international guests taking them away from the typical tourist trails to allow guests to discover the capital through the eyes of the locals.

Among the recommendations are visits to colonial-age coffee and tea farms; horse-riding excursions in the neighbourhoods of Karen, Kitisuru or Muthaiga (the headquarters of the UN in Africa); visits to the National Museum for a deep dive into Nairobi’s history, exclusive visits at Anselm glass and even a night out at Nairobi’s famous clubs.

Guests are even invited to embark on a design tour, available on the property. The new décor is a striking blend of early 1900s British design mixed with a modern artistic influence.
