Kenya hospitality news – Sun Africa’s ‘Sovereign Suites’ in soft opening stage


As reported here two months ago, Sun Africa Hotels in Kenya was at the time busy to get their new flagship property in Nairobi up and running for an opening by October this year.

The time frame is still intact it was learned yesterday when information was obtained that the Sovereign Suites are now in the ‘soft opening’ stage until the ‘proper’ opening scheduled for 01st October this year.

On arrival the palatial building already impresses visitors who will instantly belief that this ‘boutique’ hotel residence is very different from any ordinary hotel, in particular when it comes to size.

The two schools of thought, one saying size does not matter while the other says size does matter are both proven right here. 11 suites, 2 family suites and 2 presidential suites, the latter two categories with multiple bedrooms and walk in closets, are entirely the ‘right size’ for the clientele Sun Africa is aiming for, and considering that it is just 15 kilometres down the Limuru road to the Village Market and the UN complex, those seeking luxury as well as privacy will find exactly that. Furnishings and bathroom fittings are of the highest quality, the fabrics match the rest of the ‘hotel’ in a warm and inviting colour scheme and the latest technologies, including the ever more important FREE high speed internet connection and flat screen satellite TV’s make the Sovereign Suites truly a home away from home, and also a place one can work from.

The lounges, sporting authentic looking ‘period furniture’ are paneled in wood and feature big fire places, as do some of the suites of course, giving the impression of a private club rather than that of a ‘normal’ hotel, not that anything about the Sovereign Suites is really ‘normal’. Residents will be ‘scoring points’ with their own guests, when inviting them to this unique property, be it for a drink – served in all the lounges of course besides the bars – or for lunch and dinner. Fine dining will undoubtedly also make the Sovereign Suites in the future a focal point for the residents in the immediate Limuru area but also from further away, as the road leading to the Sovereign Suites was during a first visit found to be in immaculate shape.

A fully equipped gym with available trainers complements the other features, as does a sauna and steam room – besides the outdoor pool which is overlooked by the garden side of the main building.

The Sovereign Suites has joined up with ‘Preferred Hotels’ and is as such assured of a wide exposure around the globe which will go hand in hand with Sun Africa Hotels’ own marketing efforts.
