Nairobi, Kenya
Reviewed 9 July 2015

More like a resort than a hotel with wonderful landscaping and a great maze of pathways around the area. The campus is huge and really inviting for strolls. There is ample parking and the water bodies in the landscapes are really nice.

The hotel is in a fenced area, its totally safe. And there is a close small mall for shopping, restaurants and supermarket. The staff is friendly, calm, but very very slow. The room was amazing I didn’t like the food that much, however, If I go to Nairobi, I'll go there again

Everything's elegant here, from the public areas to the bedrooms to the meeting rooms to the restaurant. Willing friendly staff and lovely original food, but be patient with the slow service for dinner as the cooks do their fancy preparations.

I was in Nairobi for a few days and sceptical about any design hotel because I feared some overly Westernized bubble which would erase the local culture and Isolate its guests from what makes this City so interesting.

wonderful hotel, convenient location, very friendly and accommodation staff. I've had a great stay so far. The rooms are very comfortable. Generally I wake up at 5:30 on the dot, but I managed to sleep in until 8 for the first time in 2 years.

The Hotel organized a perfect wedding reception with minimal supervision and did a great job. The food was amazing and we loved our room and bed. The decor and gifts were also a good surprise. I would chose Tribe to host my events any day.

It’s sleek architecture and crisp lines are sure to set forth a brand new experience in hotel accommodation. Drawing inspiration from its African heritage, the interior of the hotel boasts exquisite art, crafts and furnishings handpicked from the farthest corners of the continent. Each of the 137 rooms is carefully designed to whisk you away from the average mundane hotel room into a world of chic and hip design with an emphasis on detail and luxury.

From free high speed internet access, complimentary mini bars, luxury airport transfers, warm welcomes to express check in and check-out facilities, you can be sure that Tribe understands the individual needs of just about any traveler! Adjacent to the hotel is The Village Market, the largest shopping and recreational complex in Eastern Africa, and Nairobi’s premier retail and cultural destination. With over 150 shops and services, set within flowing rivers and waterfalls. It is also home to the weekly Maasai Market which hosts 350 artists for a colorful display of crafts, paintings, beadworks and fabrics every Friday. Bringing a whole new pampering experience to Nairobi is the hotel’s Kaya Spa. Using carefully selected products, Kaya’s uniquely developed treatments are designed to harmonize both the body and mind. The six treatment rooms infuse a sense of tranquility through inspiring design and decor that is sure to contribute to the relaxation and re-invigoration of your entire spa experience. Tribe’s signature restaurant recently launched a brand new menu carefully designed by the Executive Chef and his team. Inspired by the open flame grill, the menu is a tribute to local farmers; paying homage to crisp flavors and fresh, organic ingredients. The Jiko team has also reinvented Tribe’s famous Sunday brunch; the perfectly constructed menu features an extended dessert buffet, unlimited breezy cocktails, amongst an array of other feasts for the entire family. Jiko authentically holds true to the glamour of the hotel while offering guests the delights of whimsy and fantasy through a playful approach to presentation.

Using only the finest ingredients, the pastry shop offers an array of hot and cold treats ranging from custom and novelty cakes, decadent French macaroons, designer cupcakes, homemade chocolates and ice creams to bespoke sandwiches made using daily freshly baked bread. Whether it be for some intimate time alone with a tall mug of chai tea latte and a deliciously delectable pastry or a high tea with friends, Suite 101 is definitely a must try for any sweet tooth! Tribe’s serene, charming and charismatic surroundings undoubtedly place it among the most striking, and luxurious boutique properties on the African continent, guaranteeing to meet and exceed the needs of any guest from jet setting celebrities to time constrained business travelers looking to add an urban flair to their Kenya-getaways! ... more   less
