Radisson Blu has announced the opening of the Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence, Nairobi Arboretum.
The hotel becomes the group’s third hotel in Kenya.
It is located in the heart of Nairobi, overlooking the Arboretum park and adjacent to the State House within the affluent Kilimani district of the city.
A sprawling forest reserve and a popular destination for walks and picnics, the Arboretum offers a refreshing retreat away from the urban frenzy and is home to more than 300 exotic tree species and more than 100 types of bird.
