The Karen Blixen Coffee Cottages are located in Karen, a lush and quiet suburb 20 miles from downtown Nairobi. The cottages are nestled in one of the oldest formal gardens in Kenya with huge jacaranda, candelabra, cactus, and bottlebrush trees, among many others. Hundreds of flowers bloom throughout the year and many bird feeders attract numerous varieties of birds. The cottages and public buildings are a blend of the original farm house and carefully planned newer construction. Each of the cottages is well appointed with hi-beam ceilings, fireplaces, wood and stone floors. Mini bars, 24-hour room service, satellite TVs and internet connection are also available. A private swimming pool, garden bar, and spa are perfect for relaxing in the afternoons. The restaurant offers a choice of five dining areas for lunch and dinner, including in-room, poolside, in the spacious outdoor garden, restaurant veranda or in the formal dinning room. Relax by the large fireplace in the dining room in suede chairs on chilly or rainy days or play board games and darts. The Karen Blixen Coffee Cottages offer the perfect mixture of luxurious accommodations, delicious food, and numerous activities to create an unforgettable experience.
