As I remembered that there is a hotel that has rooms and a restaurant under water, I decided to research a bit and try to find the world hotels unique for its offer – no matter if it`s at special location, has interesting services, maybe unusual menu or a peculiar attraction. That is how I`ve found the Hotel Giraffe Manor in Kenya.
BOUTIQUE HOTEL GIRAFFE MANOR, Kenya
The Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel located 20 kilometers from Nairobi, Kenya. It was built in 1930`s, modeled on the modelled on a Scottish hunting lodge and till today it has kept authentic charm. Today it is the only hotel in the world where a herd of giraffes (Rothschild species) inhabit the area around the hotel. Not only that, giraffes are attraction, but also a regular visitors of the hotel, and they often peek through the window with the hope that they will get some dessert.
With service that is really good – as people have testified on the travel forums – the only drawback is the price. Of course unless you are one of those who really want to enjoy the giraffes up close or one of those who are looking for unusual hotels like this. Price per room with full board service ranges from 662 US$ for single-bedded room, 973 US$ double-bedded and 1459 US$ for a triple room.
I would love to tell you much more about the hotel, but for real experience and vivid personal photos I`d have to go there. Until that happens, enjoy some photos that I`ve found…
The giraffe often peek through the window for the breakfast, actually they do it quite often!
“Knock-knock! Is anybody there?”
