The five-star Sankara Nairobi hotel has long been considered one of Nairobi’s premier conference, wedding and special event venues.

Whatever the occasion, our experienced professional team and versatile meeting facilities will ensure that your event will be a complete success.

Business meetings

Sankara Nairobi means business and we enable our guests to get things done. With more than 250 square metres of multi-functional event facilities in an excellent location at the heart of Westlands, we offer one of the most exclusive and convenient venues for corporate gatherings in Nairobi.

Our three Woodvale Ballrooms, together catering up to 220 guests, are furnished to the highest standards with wenge wood, Italian marble and plush carpeting. Accented by original pieces of modern African artwork, the spaces have a contemporary yet warm ambience. Natural light from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and an outdoor terrace perfect for breakouts, create a relaxed and open atmosphere.

All function venues at Sankara Nairobi are equipped with the latest technology, including complimentary high-speed Internet access and state-of-the art built-in audio-visual equipment. An adjacent private boardroom and business centre ensure that all your business needs are met.
