  • The Rough Guide, my favourite travel guide, says that the Heron Portico, at a price range of between Sh12,000 to Sh14,000, is very good value for money when compared with its competition in Nairobi. I agree. And when I mentioned this to Sanjeen Tiwari, the general manager, he said, “that is precisely what we are aiming for — value for money.”
  • Certainly, the Sarovar Group, which manages many hotels across India and elsewhere, has brought a quiet efficiency to the hotel. It has also brought an Indian Ocean style.
