Swiss-Belhotel International, a rapidly growing global hotel management group, has signed an agreement with the NIBS Resort Company to manage the Swiss-Belinn Nairobi, the group’s first operating hotel in Africa.

This collaboration underscores Swiss-Belhotel International’s strategic expansion plans in Africa.

Nestled in the serene Kileleshwa neighbourhood, the hotel features 89 spacious rooms, 9 well-equipped meeting rooms and a gym. The hotel also offers an all-day dining restaurant and a delightful rooftop bar with panoramic views of Nairobi’s skyline. The hotel's prime location merely 25 minutes away from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, ensures guests are just 5 minutes away from the bustling life of Westlands.

Lizzie Wanyoike, the famous Kenyan entrepreneur and founder of Nairobi Institute of Business Studies (NIBS), was present at the signing ceremony.

Antony, Stella and Eric Wanyoike, the Directors of NIBS Resort Company, expressed their delight in bringing Swiss-Belhotel International to operate their property.

Nairobi, contributing approximately 10% of its GDP to tourism and having welcomed 1.48 million international tourists in 2022, has solidified its reputation as a leading business and leisure destination.

Gavin M Faull, Chairman and President of Swiss-Belhotel International, remarked: “We are proud to introduce the Swiss-Belinn brand in the exciting destination of Nairobi. Entering Kenya, and specifically Nairobi, with a reputable partner like NIBS Resort Company Limited, aligns perfectly with our global expansion plans. It is the first operating hotel for our group in Africa and therefore marks a significant milestone for us.”

Swiss-Belhotel International will soon begin implementing its international standards and enhancements, targeting a complete rebranding of the Swiss-Belinn Nairobi by January 15, 2024.

Laurent A Voivenel, Senior Vice President – Operations & Development, EMEA & India, added: "The Middle East and Africa are key growth markets for us. With recent tourism data indicating healthy growth in Africa, and Nairobi emerging as a key destination, Swiss-Belhotel International's debut is aptly timed. We look forward to delivering on our brand promise at the Swiss-Belinn Nairobi.”
