    Tribe Hotel

    Urban, loft-like style blends effortlessly with warm African colors at Nairobi's Tribe Hotel, a pioneering lifestyle property that sets itself apart with atypical angles and an unrivalled appreciation for tribal crafts. Some 900 hand-sculpted artifacts from all over Africa have been gathered here, capturing the diversity of the continent and evoking a sense of splendor that is raising the luxury hotel stakes in the continent. Spread across three wings in the heart of Nairobi's diplomatic district, a soaring sunlit atrium links the Tribe's 137 guest rooms and suites. Inside, cool granite and stretches of dark Indian slate temper earthy combinations of cumin, sandstone, and brown-sugar hues. Architect Mehraz Ehsani continues this balance by using authentic Kenyan materials in the public spaces. These include the Kaya Spa, which takes its inspiration from the country's sacred forests; the well-stocked library; the rooftop bar; and the heated pool, surrounded by waterfalls and gardens.

    Rooms & Suites

    Tribe’s 137 rooms and suites are as diverse as the artwork they contain, but whether you chose the 98-square-meter (1,054-square-feet) deluxe units or the 335-square-meter (3,605-square-feet) Presidential Wing—designed to host an entire entourage or delegation—some things remain wonderfully constant. These include the dark wooden floors, the sultry spice-colored décor, and the bright-white bathtubs. Granite, slate, and marble help to temper the warm African tones, and right angles are almost nonexistent. Added luxury comes from the 300-thread-count sheets and Eartherapy amenities, distributed generously in every room.

    Shamim Ehsani

    Creating a hotel that both defines a city and represents a nation is a daunting task. But for Nairobi’s Shamim Ehsani and his family it was a challenge they pulled off to masterful effect. Tribe was born in the tailwind of political strife—the riots of 2007 to 2008—and at a time when investment was low. Thus Tribe became the first high-end boutique hotel to have opened in Nairobi in some 30 years. The U.S.-educated Ehsani is the branding man at Tribe, as well as the designer of Tribe’s rooftop lounge, The Nest. His intention was to encapsulate the city’s African spirit while celebrating creativity, fashion, art, and design—and not race, power, or tradition. Four years on, Ehsani and his family have helped strengthen Nairobi as a cosmopolitan destination.
