Introducing Hemingways Eden Nairobi

We are delighted to announce the addition of Hemingways Eden to the Hemingways Collection portfolio of boutique hotels. With effect from 1st November 2022, we are taking over the management of Eden Nairobi, the boutique hotel set on a four acre plot bordering the Giraffe Sanctuary in Nairobi. With just 9 keys, Hemingways Eden offers an escape from the bustling city of Nairobi and is one of the most unique getaways in Africa, built and designed by artists Tonio and Anna Trzebinski, originally as a family home. Hemingways Eden will become a key part of our portfolio and will be managed with the same professionalism and diligence as our other properties. Substantially different in physical character to Hemingways Nairobi and originally a family home, we believe that Hemingways Eden lends itself to hosting small groups and families and our exclusive use rate structure supports that philosophy. 

As we take over the management of Eden, we want to assure our partners that we will be doing everything possible to ensure a smooth and successful transition. In the immediate term we are not making any substantial changes to the property but hope to make certain investments in 2023 to improve the guest experience and will keep you informed of those plans.

Please follow the link below for the 2023 rack rates and terms and conditions.

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara’s New Look

We are delighted to share Ol Seki’s exciting and refreshing new look which elevates the experience of staying at the camp substantially and, we believe, provides a new level luxury for camps in the Mara conservancies. We re-opened the camp in July and have been able to complete the refurbishment and upgrade of four Nina (double) tents as well as the substantial upgrade to the dining and lounge area overlooking the pool and Koiyaki plains.

Our new Nina tents have floor-to-ceiling folding glass frontages, with higher ceilings to give the best possible views over the Mara, completely new bathrooms with more luxurious fixtures and fittings including free standing bath tubs and indoor and outdoor showers, and re-configured layouts for even greater privacy.

The dining room and lounge area has been completely redesigned to create a larger open plan space for relaxation and dining, including a new bar and sunken baraza seating space, all of which will make the most of the fabulous views over the Mara plains

Taking inspiration from the circular shape and Bedouin feel of the Nina tents, the team at White Elephant Kenya have worked their magic on the interior design, introducing a tribal nomadic theme using hand carved mango wood, raffia and bakuba wall hangings from central Africa, locally hand-woven fabrics and custom designed brass and alabaster stone lights. Lattice wood divides, used throughout the new tents, dining and lounge areas, represent a modern take on a traditional Morroccan screen and allow for gentle air flow in the heat of the day and a cozy feel during the chilly nights.

As we re-open, we have the following tent inventory in use:

4 new upgraded Nina (double) tents

4 original Nina (double) tents

Original Simba family suite

Work is ongoing on the new Simba family suited tent at its new location and we will advise in due course once the work is complete. The traditional Simba tent is available and in use whilst we complete work on the new, improved version.

The four remaining original Nina tents will be upgraded in Q1 2023 and will therefore be removed from inventory for reservations during that period. The layout of Ol Seki will allow us to complete the necessary work quietly whilst keeping the rest of camp open and available for guests to enjoy.

Rejuventated Dulini Moya captures the spirit of the Sabi Sand

The Dulini Collection is proud to unveil the rejuvenated Dulini Moya, a five-star safari lodge in South Africa’s game-rich Sabi Sand Game Reserve. 

The upgrade of Dulini Moya saw the communal lounge area entirely revamped. Walls were removed to create an airy open-sided space with bushveld views, while the new signature fireplace creates a welcoming area for guests to gather before and after twice-daily game drives. The intimate new Winter Lounge offers a quiet space for conversation and delving into the curated library and leads into a spacious new wine cellar capable of hosting private dinners. The creation of a semi-enclosed Dining Sala provides an all-weather venue overlooking the lodge’s indigenous gardens. 

In the six guest suites, extensive renovations have raised the ceilings and enlarged both windows and sliding doors to let in more natural light, creating an airy sense of space. Private decks boast heated plunge pools, while floor-to-ceiling glass walls maximise the wilderness views throughout the suite. The décor revamp extends to the soft furnishings, with the addition of locally made textiles, luxuriant bedspreads and handcrafted artworks and furniture. 

 While the look and layout of Dulini Moya have been updated, the authentic African hospitality remains unchanged!
