Reviewed 1 week ago

The service and ancillary support from Tribe Hotel during the week of my stay was first class in all aspects. The room quality was superior, with very modern and high quality fittings and fixtures. Highly recommended for a stay when in Nairobi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tribe. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, clean and stylish. The common areas including the bar, lounge, nest and patisserie are pleasant. The pool area, with stepping stones was very, almost too warm. We enjoyed lunch (excellent sushi and sashimi), cocktails and delicious dinner. There were a few of our preferred wines missing from...

We had a very relaxing weekend stay here. The hotel is located in a quiet area on the outskirts of Nairobi. The staff was welcoming and extremely attentive at all times. Definitely their strongest asset. SPG recognition was also well excetuted. If you happen to stay on a Sunday, the brunch with live music is definitely worth it. The Spa...

We visited The Tribe to enjoy The Tribe's 'Sleepy Cupid' Valentine's package. The hotel is well designed and laid out. Common areas feature lots of stone cladding and a fusion of modernity and traditional African art and carvings, which was carried through to our room. It was also good to note that the seats in reception and the desk and...

We had a lovely stay here. The staff were the nicest I've ever come across in a hotel. I thought it was a nice touch that your check in person accompanies you to your room to check everything is in order. The breakfast was good and it was lovely to be able to safely walk to the local shopping centre....

This is a beautiful hotel. Stunning design and lovely grounds. Public areas filled with African art. No expense spared in making this hotel look interesting. Rooms - we stayed two separate stays in superior rooms - it felt like these were really for one person. Just one bathrobe in the wardrobe and if your partner is working at the desk,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set apart from the crowded city centre and a modern contrast to a city of colonially-inspired getaways, Tribe Hotel located in the lush suburbs of the city echoes nothing but the ultimate in luxury and tranquility. 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. An ideal destination for those craving increased intimacy and comfort with an added dose of personal service. 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. Located on the lobby level of the hotel, Suite 101, the new pastry offering at Tribe, is a place where you can come at anytime of the day. 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
