We ended a fantastic two weeks in Kenya at the Palacina Residence and Suites, Nairobi. We were here for 12 hours, flying out early the next day. What a greeting on a Thursday night: free wine and canapes in the hotel reception with a piano bar. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite, which was huge. In fact it was so huge that we couldn't sleep! We did enjoy the double jacuzzi though.
Staff were welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We ate at the Moonflower restaurant, which is attached to the hotel, and which is lovely. Portions are huge, and we felt really bad because we could not clear our plates. The food is described as Japanese, but it is more fusion/European than Japanese we would say. Staff in the restaurant were also obliging.
The view over Nairobi at night from the suites is amazing. There is a lot of security because the President's palace is nearby. This might be a little off-putting to some.
Next morning we received a charming wake up call at 5am from the receptionist, who then ran around making coffee and organizing breakfast for us. This set us up well for the drive at break neck speed to the airport and the rigours of the Virgin Atlantic flight home.
