Bangkok 31 July 2019 – Dusit International, one of Thailand’s leading hotel and property development companies, has announced it will reopen the dusitD2 Nairobi hotel on 1 August 2019 following six months of renovation to introduce new dining and meeting experiences.

The hotel’s signature all-day dining restaurant, SOKO, has been redesigned to include an open kitchen and live cooking stations, while DFit fitness centre has been fully refitted with new top-of-the-range gym equipment. Enticing new menus will be offered at each of the hotel’s outlets.

“Over the past five years, dusitD2 Nairobi has welcomed leisure and business travellers from all corners of the globe and established itself as one of the leading international hotels in the city,” said Mr Michael Metaxas, General Manager, dusitD2 Nairobi. “We now look forward to reaffirming that position through our unwavering commitment to service excellence, our new range of impressive dining and meetings experiences, plus the fresh new look and feel throughout the property.”

To mark its grand reopening, dusitD2 Nairobi hotel is offering a special reopening package offering 20% of the Dusit Best Available Rate, daily breakfast for two persons, and complimentary room upgrade.
