Where to visit while in Kisumu City
Besides the fish delicacy and tranquility of Lake Victoria, there is abundance of historical and cultural sites and much more that Kisumu town and its environs offers its visitors.
And forget the story of hyacinth ‘eating’ the lake, this gateway to the Western Kenya tourism circuit has more wonders to explore, surprisingly more than most overrated and widely exposed tourism spots and towns you have been to in Kenya.
Our journey stars at the iconic Acacia Premier Hotel, which is the most modern and biggest hotel located at The West End Shopping Mall on Achieng’ Oneko road. Here, the story is told of how, back in the day, there wasn’t much to choose from under the acacia tree. You would arrive, feed and on you went. Gratification was a luxury that many couldn’t afford. Food and beverage were a means to an end.
Today, under the Acacia, food is quite simply an unforgettable experience that awaits you, with a mouth-watering mix of international and local cuisine to choose from. This is the truth we encounter at this magnificent place. It is no longer the place for the villager and the simple herdsman. A lot has changed. The world converges here for business, luxury and bliss.
Acacia Premier is an oasis of fine service and first-class comfort, a feast for the senses and an ideal rendezvous. It is a latter-day haven for the discerning business and leisure traveler.
Situated within the prime leafy suburb of Milimani and straddling the shores of Lake Victoria, the hotel offers convenience, serenity and a flair for the spectacular, for all who visit. It is an exceptional location for both corporate and social events that boosts a grand ballroom that can hold up to 700 people. Catering is available at the Café Acacia, Buzz Bar and the Aqua Pool Bar & Grill, perfect blend of stimulating space, convenient location and state of the art facilities to make every meeting or event memorable.
Every room is a place of comfort and tranquility. Acacia rooms exude style to match the guests’ mind-set. The superior rooms and bay suites incorporate a magnificent view of Lake Victoria.
Acacia Premier is the ideal launch pad to exploring Kisumu and its beautiful environs. It is time to discover the thrill of adventure with a variety of exciting activities to choose from whether you are seeking nature, wildlife, culture or relaxation.
