Expert Review

At the heart of the buzzing Westlands suburb a short drive from the city center, this five-star newcomer is a perfect blending of international style and East African flair. Opened in August 2010, the plush boutique hotel showcases 156 oversize rooms and suites with contempo-chic décor, warm tones, and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows. The en-suite marble bathrooms feature walk-in rain showers and tubs to boot. Other in-room perks include a pillow menu and complimentary Internet access. An extensive collection of modern East African artwork graces the public spaces. Service is proactive but discreet and consistent. In addition to 24-hour room service, dining options include four restaurants, such as Muhibbah, which dishes out Southeast Asian cuisine. Light fare is available at Sarabi by the rooftop pool, which boasts 360-degree views of the city. The on-site Angsana Spa is the first foray to East Africa by renowned Banyan Tree. Signature treatments, both 150 minutes in length and including an hour-long massage, include Rainmist Glow and Coffee Delight.
