African Pride Hotel, Lodges and Country Houses is breaking borders, entering into Kenya with the launch of a deluxe city hotel. Tribe delights the senses with it’s winning fusion of traditional African and contemporary aesthetics. Tribe was recently voted one of the hottest hotels in the world by Conde Nast UK Traveller’s Hot List 2010
Tribe, the brainchild of two Kenyan brothers, Hamed and Mehraz Ehsani who decided to create the East Africa’s largest all-in-one concept centre which features over 150 shops, restaurants and services.
Situated in the up-market Gigiri suburb of Nairobi, the hotel is attached to the trendy Village Market shopping and recreation complex, the hotel offers modern facilities and personal services including wireless internet access, a business center and meeting rooms, a wellness spa, individualized travel services and a well-versed concierge.
The design is hip and chic, with an emphasis on African luxury and design elements. Rooms feature large LCD TVs, high-speed internet connectivity, open-plan bathrooms with high pressure showers, mood lighting and floor to ceiling mirrors.
You’re on the leafy outskirts of Nairobi, in a smart-looking suite whose finishings wouldn’t be out of place in London or Manhattan. But there’s one dramatic difference – the hotel shows off its African heritage with exquisite art, crafts, and furniture sourced from throughout the continent.
