The property's leisure facilities include the gym, a sports bar, rooftop swimming pool, a multi-cuisine restaurant and a high-end Italian restaurant. The hotel can host customised events and meetings for 20 to 600 people.

Hotel guests and travel agents will also be able to benefit from Louvre Hotels Group’s ongoing loyalty programmes – Ambassador’s Club and Flavors Club.

“The tourism sector, especially business tourism, is experiencing strong growth in this region. Our goal is to be there for our clients, namely key accounts, wherever their business takes them in Africa, with quality hotels offering facilities and services to support growth and upgrade quality of leisure and business tourism," stated Golden Tulip president for French-speaking Africa and East Africa Alain Sebah.

Over the past year, the group penetrated the Ethiopian market with a Golden Tulip in Addis Ababa and inaugurated yet another in Kigali, Rwanda. Many other projects are currently under development or construction in the region, with around 15 hotels planned for 2016.

“We are exhilarated to start our first hotel in Kenya with Golden Tulip. Nairobi city has seen a lot of growth and development in the recent years and with the growing tourism it is right time for world’s renowned hotel chain to set footing in Kenya. We look forward to welcoming our guest with excellent service, authentic hospitality blended with the Kenyan flair," said Jagat Shah, CEO of Mitsumi Group, the hotel’s owner.
