a luxurious tropical retreat recently rennovated
Watamu means home of the sweet people in Swahili
Hemingways Hotel is an iconic tropical paradise on the Kenyan coast sitting right in the middle of the pristine Watamu Marine National Park with its idyllic white sand beach and turquoise waters. Stay on the coast of East Africa, where Kenya’s marine protected areas are internationally recognised as a UNESCO Biosphere reserve. The exceptional personal service and sincere charm of this established hotel has come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many travellers for close to 30 years.
Hemingways Watamu has recently undergone a mega makeover. The accommodation includes a 39-room boutique hotel, all with exceptional ocean views, together with a private residential development on the seafront comprising 21 luxury residences. The hotel feature an open plan layout and new luxury spa and gym overlooking a fabulous botanical swimming pool with new water features outside the main restaurant.
There is so much to do here - activities include some of the best game fishing in the world, kite-surfing, PADI certified diving, a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek, golf on the nearby world class golf course, Vipingo Ridge, or go on safari for a few days in Tsavo or the Masai Mara. If that all sounds a little too energetic, relax around the pool with a good book as you work your way through the cocktail menu.
