Villa Rosa Kempinski and Olare Mara Kempinski received three awards at the continental level at the recently concluded World Luxury Hotel Awards Gala Ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa.
Olare Mara Kempinski in the Masai Mara won in two categories – the Luxury Tented Safari Camp and Luxury Wildlife Resort 2014 – while Villa Rosa Kempinksi was awarded the Luxury City Hotel 2014.
The World Luxury Hotel Awards is a recognised global organisation providing luxury hotels with recognition for thier world-class facilities and service excellence provided to guests. With votes cast by hotel guests, the aim of the awards is to encourage and raise service standards within the luxury hotel industry.
Manish Nambiar, general manager of both properties said, “We are delighted that our guests continue to recognise us on the world map of luxury. We thank them for their support and we will continue to aim for nothing short of the best for the kind people who expect excellence and value individuality.”
Olare Mara Kempinski is famous for marrying luxury with the wild of the Kenyan Savannah. Each of the 12 tents is furnished in the classic style of the grand African safaris with four-poster or twin beds, outdoor and indoor showers with oversized, old-fashioned clawfoot bathtubs and a teak deck spread over 80 sq m (861.1 sq ft). One of the tents features its own plunge pool.
The camp presents a wide variety of on-site and off-site activities, including game drives in 4X4 Land cruisers with knowledgeable safari guides, night safaris, escorted bird, game and nature walks, Masai village visits, bush breakfasts at the hippo pool or early morning balloon safaris over the Masai Mara National Reserve.
In the urban setting of the Westlands area in Nairobi, Villa Rosa Kempinksi offers a fusion of European luxury and Kenyan hospitality. With its iconic architecture, the hotel is favourably positioned for business as well as leisure. Guests can spend part of the day climbing the corporate ladder in meetings in its modern conferencing facilities or relaxing in in the luxurious surroundings of the 200 well-appointed rooms, five restaurants and the Kempinski the Spa.
