Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to introduce you to 31 Hotels in 31 Days! So there I was talking to a dear friend who happened to be the General Manager of a hotel too. I asked him if hotels would be open to trying out something that had never been done before, participate in this crazy idea where I check into 31 Hotels for 31 days, with the concept behind it being to experience what each hotel had to offer for 24 Hours in real time!
This experience would be shared with you, my beloved audience on Instagram Stories and Snapchat (@akinyiadongo) followed by this blog piece I am currently penning… You can imagine my surprise when 31 hotels signed up!
Which brings me to Hotel number one: Four Points by Sheraton, Nairobi Airport, which happens to be your gateway to Kenya!
When you land (or are leaving Nairobi,) it is impossible to miss the hotel which is located right at your point of entry into Kenya. I checked into my room…
…and then went straight to the rooftop for a compulsory picture by the stunning rooftop swimming pool!
Since it was right about lunchtime, Chef Chandra Shekhar was kind enough to invite me to try the Weekend lunch plan, the Fishy Weekend which was being served at Tazama Rooftop Bar & Grill.
What is really cool is that every other couple of weeks they have a different theme for the weekend menu.
Guys, my fish was delicious!
For dessert, I had Gulab Jamun…
Lunch was followed by an extensive tour and then dinner at The Marketplace Restaurant. Again, Chef Chandra lined up a superb dinner for me which comprised of Steak and dessert!
I retired to bed fully satisfied, only to wake up to a delightful breakfast overseen by the amazing Chef Chandra!
By the time day one was done, I was looking for my gym kit because if the next 30 days will be anything like day one, then I am in for one insane ride!
As I was checking out, I now understood why Four Points By Sheraton by the airport has won multiple awards at such a young age: Best Airport Hotel Kenya, Best Airport Hotel Africa, Best Large Hotel Kenya, Best Large Hotel Africa, and International Five Star Hotel 2018-2019.
I leave you with pictures of Four Points as I prepare for Hotel number two!
