The Boma, Nairobi’s latest 5 star hotel, set for soft opening by mid August


Nairobis latest addition to the hotel industry, the Kenya Red Cross owned The Boma is presently finishing its dry runs before envisaging soft opening during the second half of August, once all systems have been checked and re-checked and been given the green light as fully functional and operational.
Conveniently located along the main road between the city of Nairobi and the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport near South C, about a kilometre off the highway, this new 5 star hotel is set to offer 150 suites and rooms, fully fledged conference and recreational facilities and a range of restaurants and bars. Views from the rooftop across the Nairobi National Park are said to be almost worth being called a roof top safari and will undoubtedly be popular with tourists making The Boma their base while staying in Nairobi, as will be the roof top pool high above the hustle and bustle of Nairobi.
The Red Cross Society of Kenya had five years ago invested in the first of their Red Court hotels and is now, according to a regular source from Nairobi, set to widen their portfolio in terms of properties in Nairobi and other parts of the country to create sustainable profits and income, all of which then goes to support the operations of the Kenya Red Cross humanitarian operations.
Expect a report on the impression the new hotel makes on this correspondent after his next visit to Nairobi, to be shared here and on his regular TripAdvisor commentaries of properties visited and re-visited. Watch this space.

  3. Boma hotel is a great hotel. I have been there but it takes good management to make a successful hotel. The people managing the hotel will make or break the hotel. Recently i made an inquiry about hosting an evening wedding reception for 200 and talked to a Mr george who promised to send a quotation but todate nothing is forthcoming. In today’s business you need focus and an aggressive sales team. The ladies at the reception were super. You lost a million shillings. pull up????
