In Africa, ‘boma’ is the word traditionally used to describe a safe and secure enclosure or meeting place. Taking inspiration for its façade from the triangular sails of traditional dhows that glide gently over the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean on the Kenyan coast, Boma Hotel in Nairobi seamlessly connects Africa’s heritage with its future to create bright, contemporary accommodation with all the mod cons that will suit travellers jetting in or out of the Masai Mara or who are joining the Wildebeest Migration.
In addition to creating a comfortable stay for guests, Boma Hotel donates all profits to the Kenyan Red Cross Society’s humanitarian efforts, thus doing good while doing business. As one of the most modern hotels in Kenya, Boma features up-to-the-minute touches like a solar-heated, roof-top swimming pool, double-glazed windows and black-out curtains for a perfect night’s sleep and a top-notch fitness centre that offers classes in everything from high-impact ‘insanity training’ to zumba and salsa.
Tuck into an African-infused international menu at the Johari Restaurant and Tembo Bistro before relaxing with a cocktail in the Boma’s manicured gardens. Overcome jet-lag with an Elemis body massage followed a rejuvenating Vichy shower in the 4-room Zoezi Spa. Boasting nearly 150 rooms over several levels under a striking glass dome, Boma Hotel is a high-end option in one of Africa’s liveliest cities and most beautiful countries.
