The family-owned boutique hotel group, Hemingways Collection, has taken over the management of Eden Nairobi. This is a nine-bedroom and one of the unique properties in Africa originally built as a family home by artistes Tonio and Anna Trzebinski. The property will be renamed Hemingways Eden, joining Hemingways Nairobi, Ol Seki Hemingways Mara, and Hemingways Watamu in the collection. A recent winner in the Fodor's Finest Hotels list, Eden Nairobi is set on a four-acre plot on the edge of the Giraffe Sanctuary forest that immediately connects guests to their location and a peaceful yet wildly enchanting escape from the bustling city.

"We are excited about this growth opportunity and its prospects," said Ross Evans, Hemingways Group CEO. "The management takeover of Hemingways Eden is a strategic move to diversify our portfolio and expand our offering. It is also an opportunity for us to manage a unique and iconic property in a premier location in the heart of Karen, Nairobi. The standards of service will be consistent with those of our existing properties."

Filled with art and antiquities, the hotel will remain a hub for art and culture. Hemingways Collection will invest in the property whilst channelling its original artistic approach to design and atmosphere. Guests will enjoy the extensive private collection of original contemporary artworks that features in each of the bedrooms, split across the main house and studio. According to Anna Trebinski, the unique and exquisite place has become a hub for Nairobi creatives and an incubator for social change and outreach through the arts.

"Being a creative I feel that this incredible hotel needs to be managed and run by top Kenyan professionals to mirror its exceptional qualities in the service delivered to the guests. I am so honoured to announce that Hemingways Collection will be taking Eden under its wing and making it part of its portfolio of luxury properties. From one family-owned establishment to another, Eden will retain its unique offerings whilst elevating the experience to a new level," said Trebinski.

Designed as a family home, the accommodation lends itself to families and small groups with dining options including the open plan drawing and dining rooms. Alternatively, dining takes place at The Deck, overlooking the small lake and neighbouring forest. There will also be the option to hire the house exclusively.

According to Evans, the group intends to preserve and enhance the character and individuality of the new acquisition while ensuring that it provides the highest possible standards of Kenyan hospitality and international luxury hotel service.
