Tribe was conceived from a simple belief: that we coexist on a single planet and there is only one tribe that matters…humankind.
The hotel is located in Gigiri, the city’s safe diplomatic district. The global headquarters of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Habitat, World Agroforestry, multiple NGOs and Foreign Missions including the US Embassy and Canadian High Commission are all within walking distance from the hotel.
Tribe welcomes guests to a luxurious experience. The 137 guestrooms and suites excite and soothe at the same time – rich deep colours mix with natural stone and wood, stainless steel and glass features blend with rustic metal and handmade wooden furniture, world-class amenities and new age technology seamlessly complement local fabrics and artifacts.
The Tribe team is trained according to an unprecedented and contemporary global standard of personal service, etiquette and attention. The management places a premium on friendly demeanor with an understanding of the guest’s personal space and privacy.
The lobby lounge encourages a playful mix of business and pleasure: intimate ‘pod’ booths are defined by 4 storey high bespoke chandeliers and shear voile curtains; the feature “Sound Room” lets guests indulge in a private cinema experience.
NEST, the airy alfresco hangout on the rooftop serves its signature martinis and aromatic house-blended shisha flavours in a mystical Moroccan setting. Its slouch-friendly furnishings, soft beats, cool scene and sultry evening breezes ease you gently into the night.
Tribe’s most striking design feature is the outdoor pool: guests dine on ‘floating’ islands just beyond the main restaurant and sunbathe in a tropical setting of waterfalls and beautiful gardens. Only steps away lies Tribe’s premium spa – KAYA – with cozy therapy rooms offering signature African and Thai treatments from half hour jet-lag remedies to exotic full-day ‘healing’ packages.
