Fairview Gardens

Fairview Gardens was originally designed as a romantic getaway for its octogenarian owner and his septuagenarian sweetheart who have produced some of the world’s finest coffees for over four decades. And now this hidden treasure has been opened up to the public to enjoy its beautifully manicured gardens during significant occasions such as weddings or large corporate events. The central feature of Fairview Gardens is its man-built fresh water dam that is populated with tilapia and that forms a spectacular backdrop to any event hosted at this venue. The surrounding coffee provides a changing canvass with seasonality and the trees changing colors from speckled white during the flowering period, mellow greens as the coffee beans mature, and a dashing bold red during the harvest season. For birdwatchers, hikers, and cycling enthusiasts many memorable moments can be enjoyed and for those who desire photographic shoots, bookings can be made at good value rates to shoot photos by the Riara Falls or the magnificent scenic backdrops that Fairview Estate offers.


Amazingly, Fairview Estate that is host to Fairview Gardens is nestled in the middle of one of Africa’s fastest growing urban environments and is situated a short 10-15 minutes from the United Nations complex in Gigiri. For classic weddings, corporate events, and special birthdays and anniversary celebrations it is a challenge to find a more appropriate venue.
Complementary to Fairview Gardens is its small “sister” locale known as the “Bridal Gardens”. Reminiscent of the Garden of Eden, quite a few lasses have entered into holy matrimony under the witnessing presence of a 500 year plus Mugumo tree famed in the Kikuyu traditional culture. The Bridal Gardens include a lovely farm cottage where both bride and groom can prepare prior to celebrating one of the most important days in their lives.

The cottage can potentially host up to 10 people and will likely be launched as a high-class boutique facility in 2016/17. With its own private gardens, the cottage venue is ideal for small functions and can be rented on its own or, as often happens for weddings, in conjunction with the larger Fairview Gardens. Fairview Gardens is currently working in partnership with its sister company Mzima House (www.mzimahouse.co.ke), Diani, and offers an attractive Honeymoon Package for a truly memorable wedding.
