After the dusitD2 Nairobi hotel at the 14 Riverside complex was targeted in an act of terror on 15 January 2019 which claimed the lives of 21 innocent people, including four full-time employees and two contract security staff of the hotel. ( No guests were harmed in the attack ), Dusit International has announced reopening of DusitD2 Nairobi hotel at the heart of the 14 Riverside complex.
the 14 Riverside complex has already sprung back into action with tenants and business owners returning to help to beautify the area. The office buildings re-opened on 28 January with additional security measures bolstering the internationally certified systems and procedures the complex already has in place.
dusitD2 Nairobi, which has been temporarily closed since the incident, is located at the far end of the project in a private location away from the main entrance. First opened in October 2014, the hotel is known for its world-class facilities, high standards of service, and status as a leading venue for MICE business and social and private events.
Recognising the hotel’s role as a major facilitator of business in Nairobi, the management and staff of dusitD2 Nairobi are determined to reopen the hotel as a beacon of comfort, convenience and safety so the 14 Riverside community can thrive once again. This includes enhancing the property, introducing new dining concepts, and planning a series of community events, ahead of a tentative relaunch in June.
