Rated as one of the best attractions in Nairobi City, Westlands is among the most popular residential neighbourhoods, with some of the best social and entertainment centres.

This part of the city is experiencing a boom in its real estate industry, with international and local corporations like Safaricom, IBM and Google having their regional head offices here.

These, and other big companies like them, have played an influential role in not only in increasing the multinational aspect of Westlands and offering employment to the locals, but also in improving the environment and living standards for many. For example, the expansion of Waiyaki Way road by Safaricom and the setting up of small business stalls near bus stops in partnership with the County Council. Initiatives such as these have resulted in more people moving and investing in the neighbourhood, which in turn has caused an appreciation in this area’s property market. Furthermore, the magnificent setting of destination and luxury hotels such as Sankara Hotel, Villa Rosa Kempinski, Jacaranda and PrideInn Hotels, provide a hospitable experience for the many vacationers and local residents.
