Over 400 global multi-billionaires made business trips to Kenya last year and stayed at two Nairobi hotels.
International consultancy firm New World Wealth, which offers insight into trade opportunities across Africa and the Middle East, said the visitors opted for Hemingways Nairobi Hotel.
New World Wealth head of research Andrew Amoils said all the super-rich unanimously agreed that the Maasai Mara Game Reserve is a must-visit destination for anyone coming to Kenya.
The top hotels for the super-rich-Africa focus also gives a line-up of Africa’s 10 best hotels, where Hemingways ranks fifth. Other popular attractions include Tanzania’s Ngorongoro Crater Lodge and the gorilla safaris in the Virunga Mountains.
New World Wealth ranking, which is now in its third year, observed that interest among the rich in investing in Kenya and the rest of Africa, was growing. The consultants’ benchmark for a multi-millionaire is an individual with net assets equivalent to at least Sh900 million.
Kenya’s status as a high-end destination received notable mention last year with the opening of a luxurious leisure resort in the Maasai Mara by billionaire Richard Branson.
