    The newly-opened Sankara Nairobi will house the first Angsana Spa in Eastern Africa. The first of a new generation of contemporary urban hotels on the African continent and bringing a new standard in contemporary luxury and personalised service, the 156-room Sankara Nairobi balances modern style with local influences. Sankara Nairobi is proud to house Nairobi’s largest and most authoritative collection of contemporary African art and this is exhibited throughout the Spa. The Angsana Spa Sankara Nairobi features seven treatment rooms in addition to two rainmist rooms. The Spa’s signature rainmist experience is an Angsana Spa innovation combining steam and shower at the massage bed.

    Founded by the renowned Banyan Tree Spa, the award-winning Angsana Spa brand places special emphasis on the use of natural ingredients such as native flowers, fruits and plants. Angsana Spa uses aromatherapy, the therapeutic sense of touch, and a fusion of techniques from the East and West to refresh and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit.

    The Spa is contemporary in design; walls and treatment rooms are curved to give a softer and more organic feel in keeping with the spa philosophy. Materials used include dark wood, Indian sandstone, Italian mosaic and granite. While bamboo, glass and pebbles provide contemporary design features. Sankara Nairobi also has a roof-top pool and gym.

    20km from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Sankara Nairobi is situated in the heart of Westlands, Nairobi’s commercial, retail and entertainment quarter, and within easy reach of the city centre and diplomatic districts.
