Acacia Premier Kisumu; of class,ambience,relaxation and a panoramic view of the lakeside city.

In one of my trips to the western region of Kenya, I stopped briefly at Acacia Premier in Kisumu City. It had been a bumpy drive and the only thing on my mind was freshly squuezed orange juice and samosas.

When I stepped inside the hotel, my jaw almost dropped! The hunger suddenly disappeared as my eyes wandered around looking for the manager to ask for permission to take photos.

At the time of visit there was an international conference going on in one of the conference rooms and upon inquiry of the availability of rooms, the manager told me they were fully booked!

You know that feeling you get when the initial intention was a quick stop for a snack then on taking note of what a hotel offers you change your mind? Well, that was the story of my life then.

I bet anyone would be excited to book their stay at Acacia Premier after seeing these photos!

Dustless floors.
The proportionality and careful arrangement of everything amused the OCD in me.
This bar can make for a perfect scene to shoot an expensive alcohol’s advert… You know, with models wearing red lipstick, six inch sandals laughing elegantly with men wearing parliament blue suits as they toast to good life…

The vintage wall hangings…
One of the dining areas.
Feels like a palace… no?
Sound proof spaces.
Simplicity and elegance. Is this blue or turquoise?

 

Who wouldn’t enjoy this kind of view?
Kisumu City…
Finally my samosa…These were the best samosas ever!
My orange juice tasted so good at the poolside restaurant.

I am yet to spend a night at Acacia Premier,but I promised as soon as I do, you will get it all fresh here. Better yet, why don’t you let me know of your experience when you get to visit?
