The Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club is expected to officially launch a new hotel as it celebrates 60 years of being in business.
The high-end hotel will be launching The Colobus Grill, a haute cuisine dining experience. The new restaurant, which has been renovated from the private members’ room, will offer various grilled dishes.
All the dishes from the restaurant, it’s worth noting, will be farmed from the nearby town Nanyuki following a new collaboration between
Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club and the local communities.
The new restaurant was opened by The County Executive Committee member- Laikipia County, Biwott Tirop at an event attended by old club members, the General Manager, Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy, Philippe Cauviere and General Manager Mount Kenya Safari Club, Laurent Chaudet.
“Our vision for The Colobus Grill is to restore the essence of fine dining glamour paired with an exceptional culinary experience. The new restaurant carries the proud history and heritage of the Club which we want to celebrate and ensure lives on for our patrons to experience,” said Laurent Chaudet, General Manager, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club.
Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, which is managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts Kenya, will also use the hotel to promote farming and use of organic products by rewarding women in the area with vegetable gardens. The club has promised to buy 100 per cent of the produce from these gardens.
With the opening of The Colobus Grill, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club will now have two restaurants after opening Tusks which offers an all-day dining experience to the hotel guests.
