The Story

The Zehneria Portico derives its name from the traditional Kenyan flowering plant ‘Zehneria’. Belonging to the cucumber plant, it grows into a wide reach of fruits and leaves and can be found in other parts of Africa, South East Asia and Australia. In essence, this flowering plant inspires the characteristics and values which the Hotel commits to offer – ‘earthiness’ in genuine hospitality, ‘beauty’ in rejuvenation, and ‘quality’ in service delivery and efficiency.
