The year has flown by, hasn’t it?  It’s already December.  It should be a great December.  Especially if you are lucky enough to be visiting Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport this December.  Because Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport has a lot of wonderful holiday celebrations going on at their hotel this year.  I want to tell you about them, the hotel, and how to save money staying at the hotel!

Jamhuri Day

Jamhuri Day is the Kenyan national holiday celebrated every year on 12 December.  Jamhuri is a Swahili word for republic, and this holiday celebrates the anniversary of when Kenya became a republic on 12 December 1964.

On 12 December 2022, there will be a special lunch buffet at Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM.  The cost for this buffet is Ksh 3,800 per person.  Choma Platters are also available all day.

Christmas Day

Christmas is a national holiday in many countries throughout the world every 25 December.  For Christians, it is celebrated by remembering and honoring the birth of Jesus Christ.  But a lot of non-Christians enjoy the cultural celebrations of Christmas, like gift-giving, Christmas decorations, Christmas music, etc.

There is also a buffet at Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport on 25 December 2022.  It takes place from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.  It costs Ksh 4,800 per person, though children below the age of 12 years old get their meal at 50% off.

This buffet though is accompanied by a live band, The Duo Band.

Utamaduni Day

Utamaduni Day, also known as Boxing Day, takes place the day after Christmas.  Some people in Kenya use it to open gifts, spend time with family, take a short trip, or take advantage of some great shopping deals.

There will be a special lunch buffet on Utamaduni Day at Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport on 26 December 2022.  It lasts from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM.  It costs Ksh 3,800 per person.  An exciting part of this lunch buffet is that it comes with a free glass of Sangria!

New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is a popular holiday celebrating the last day of the calendar year.  And on 31 December 2022, you can celebrate with a buffet at Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport.  Like Christmas, it costs Ksh 4,800 per person, but you can get half off for kids below the age of 12 years old.  And there is a live band here, too: The Duo Band.  They’ll start performing at 7:00 PM.

Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport

Hilton Garden Inn Nairobi Airport, as the name would imply, is a hotel that is quite close to the airport.  It is just seven kilometers from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, and the hotel offers a free airport shuttle.  The hotel also has access to the Nairobi Expressway at JKIA or SGR.

There are other great attractions nearby, like:

  • Nairobi National Park East Gate: 9 kilometers
  • Nairobi city center: 10 minutes away
  • Westlands: 14 minutes

The Nairobi National Park, of course, is a very popular place to go to see amazing wildlife lions, cheetahs, hyenas, leopards, birds, and more.  You can go on a safari drive here.

The hotel also has a lot of great amenities onsite.  They have a pool and fitness.  You might have guessed this from all the buffets I just told you about, but they have an onsite restaurant, the Great American Grill.  They offer free parking and free wifi.

Speaking of free, here is another way you can save money when you stay here.  Click here to book your stay!
