Excellent and professional services at Tamarind Tree Hotel. We had our business meetings there. What stood out was the safety induction that the security team took us through upon our arrival, the food was amazing and the customer service was excellent. I would definitely go back there!

The staff here go out of their way to make you welcome and at home. I had dinner, lunch and breakfast at the hotel restaurant - Tamambo- and the meals were excellent! The tuna appetizer and red snapper were great! I also enjoyed having access to a well equipped fitness center and sitting outside sipping on my favorite scotch - Lagavulin! Many thanks to Ms. Evelyn and Florence for making my stay so enjoyable!

I was struck by the ambiance and the beauty of the massage room. All done to perfection. Then came Ms. Jane, she was amazing, I came in tired and grumpy and l wanted was a relaxing massage but she beat the expectation by first listening to my body and offered the best that will heal my body. My 60min massage turned to 90mins! Thank you Jane. Very commendable. See me there soon.

Beautiful, modern hotel behind a security gate in a very busy section of Nairobi. Surrounded by like travelers as well as locals celebrating special occasions. Very busy and had a long wait for our evening meal, but the food was excellent, and the restaurant manager remained attentive to our order. Breakfast buffet in the morning was plentiful including a roach in the cereal bowl....ooops. Hey, it's Africa. You'll see worse on your safari so come with the right attitude - relax and roll with it!

Tamarind has always been a real home away from home. Edward took great care of my room. Florence and Sarah and Jackson including the numerous staff at the Bar and Restaurant made me comfortable for the one week stay. I did enjoy the several engagement with the Hotel Management proactively interested in my comfort during the stay. Great rooms, great food, gym and I can't forget the SMILEY STAFF. I can't wait to be back home to tamarind soonest!
