Experience the best of both worlds: old-school Haitian gingerbread charm, and modern comfort and luxury in the heart of Pétion-Ville, at the Kinam Hotel.
Located in the center of Pétion-Ville, at the feet of Port-au-Prince’s hills and overlooking its bay, the very luxurious and pleasant Kinam Hotel allows a peaceful stay. Located in an upscale neighborhood in the bustling city, the Kinam Hotel draws up its elegant silhouette to welcome you and allow you to experience a stay that you will never forget because the setting is idyllic, the service charming, and the atmosphere relaxing.
The Kinam Hotel holds 118 rooms, 33 vintage ones in the original gingerbread building, and 85 more in the most recent construction. Featuring sleek, modern design elements, tropical decor accents turn the rooms into relaxation oases. The rooms are all soundproofed to allow you a restful sleep and all have a very charming small living room and a balcony to bask in peace while admiring the sunset that is always offered by the good climate of Haiti.
What's for breakfast?
Not in a rush? Sit at the Terrace Restaurant overlooking the pool for a hotel breakfast that will both seem familiar and surprise you. Need to rush out to a guided visit, or just getting ready for a day of exploring? Stop by the Wide Awake Café and grab a healthy, delicious breakfast option to-go. International and local dishes are available in both places to help you break your fast in the most delicious ways.
How about lunch and dinner?
The Terrace Restaurant also offers a lunch and dinner menu, but the Kinam Hotel doesn’t stop there! Come down to the Rond Point Restaurant for a dreamy experience of Haitian cuisine. Featuring daily soup, as well as the Haitian staple that is soup joumou, grilled and stewed meats, and succulent seafood, the menu there is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Is there a bar?
The Tipsy Lounge is the place to go for afternoon, evening, or late night drinks. The gently dimmed light, savvy music, and polished decor of the space is the perfect setting for scrumptious tapas and signature drinks, available until 11 PM on weekdays, and midnight on weekends.
Activities and amenities
Take a lift to the hotel’s 5th floor to access its modern 24/7 fitness center; while you’re at the hotel, take advantage of its shopping boutiques and barber shop. After taking a dip in the hotel’s pool, offer yourself a most relaxing moment of self-care at the Botanik Spa - located inside the Karibe Hotel - for a deeply relieving massage.
Within a short walk you can find...
Several art galleries can be found near the hotel: the Nader gallery and Galerie Monnin are both 5 to 7 minutes away on foot, and if you are able to drive, the Jane Barbancourt castle is about 3 miles away. The Kinam Hotel is located opposite the very famous Place Saint-Pierre and the Saint-Pierre church; afternoon walks are recommended to visit the place. Its positioning allows you to continue the walk to Place Boyer, located about a quarter mile from the hotel.
Need to know (before you go)
The hotel offers a private shuttle to and from the Toussaint Louverture International Airport to customers, as long as a reservation is made at least 24 hours prior. Towels are available at the pool upon request, and the Wide Awake Café provides vegetarian and gluten-free options, as well.
