The Hemingways Collection has announced that its property Hemingways Nairobi is now a member of the exclusive Virtuoso network. With more than 20,000 travel advisors from over 350 agencies and 1,800 travel companies, Virtuoso is renowned to be the most prestigious and established travel network in the world.

Alastair Addison, CEO of The Hemingways Collection comments, “We are hugely excited and honoured to have been recognised by Virtuoso. It is a thoroughly well-deserved reflection of all the team’s hard work and dedication, and we look forward to continuing to go above and beyond for Virtuoso advisors and their clients.”

As one of Virtuoso’s hotels, Hemingways Nairobi is now part of an exclusive portfolio of luxury travel partners, comprising more than 1,700 preferred suppliers in 100 countries. Virtuoso works as a connector between its members: travel agents on one hand, and travel-industry partners on the other. The travel agents create exclusive vacations drawing on the travel partners, delivering deluxe itineraries, upgraded rooms, enhanced travel services, and valuable perks to luxury travel clients.

Addison continues, “As well as bringing prestige to the Hemingways Collection, this is an invaluable opportunity to tap into a wealth of luxury travel clients, with the opportunity to build relationships, expand our network and will therefore be hugely significant in terms of new sales and marketing opportunities.”

Hemingways Nairobi is a 45-suite boutique hotel located in Karen. It is part of the The Hemingways Collection which consists of Hemingways Nairobi, Hemingways Ol Seki Mara, Hemingways Watamu and Hemingways Residences. Hemingways Nairobi is also a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World that comprises 520 hotels in more than 70 countries.

In 2017, Simba Corp acquired a 35% stake in Hemingways Holdings Limited. The transaction was driven by Simba’s intention to grow its interests in the hospitality sector. Simba Corp currently has three hotel properties i.e. The Olare Mara, Villa Rosa and Acacia Premier Kisumu.
