Kempinski The Spa debuts in Kenyan capital Nairobi

Kenya’s Villa Rosa Kempinski Nairobi has raised the curtain on the first Kempinski The Spa to open in sub-Saharan Africa.

Developed and operated by Resense Spa, a joint venture between Kempinski Hotels and spa consultancy Raison d’Etre founded in 2009, the 1,100sq m (11,840sq ft) spa in the heart of Nairobi is open to both hotel guests and local residents.

The facility features nine treatment rooms, including two couples’ rooms, a relaxation area and lounge, plus wet facilities including an outdoor heated pool, steamroom, spa pool and sauna.

The spa – whose treatments are influenced by the European cycle of the seasons – has selected the Phytomer product range and will be the first in East Africa to offer Phytomer treatments.

“Ensuring all guests’ needs are catered for, state-of-the-art fitness equipment and our highly-trained therapists combine to make our spa the benchmark of unique spa experiences in Kenya and the region,” said spa manager Pauline Mbondo.

Members can buy wellness packages that give access to a range of facilities. As well as the spa, there is a fitness area featuring Technogym cardiovascular and strength equipment, a yoga studio and separate area for fitness classes.

Kempinski is to open another African property this summer – the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, in Ghana’s capital Accra – featuring a 3,000 sq m (32,300sq ft) Resense Spa which will be the largest spa facility in West Africa.
