FINCH HATTON SUITE

In 1911, Denys Finch Hatton travelled to East Africa with money left to him by his deceased uncle. He bought some land on the western side of the Rift Valley near what is now Eldoret. He met Karen Blixen at the Muthaiga Club in 1918. When Karen got divorced in 1925, Denys moved into her house where he lived until a few weeks before his final flight in May 1931 when he crashed his beloved Gypsy Moth in Tsavo National Park. As per Finch Hatton’s wishes, Blixen buried him in the Ngong Hills.

The room named after him is on the ground floor of the Garden Manor from where you’ll often see the legs of our patterned residents when you open the curtains in the early morning as they come looking for treats from the rooms above and the adjoining dining room.

This ground floor room of 74 square-metres has a king-sized bed as well as two single beds in a loft area accessed by a small spiral staircase. There is also a small sofa bed which can accommodate a third child if needed. The en-suite facilities have a uniquely large double-headed shower, twin sinks and a bathtub. There is also a small seating area with a fireplace which keeps the space wonderfully warm on the chillier Nairobi nights.
