Hemingways Watamu

Hemingways Watamu - Luxury Hotel in Watamu, Kenya

A luxury resort circled by spellbinding scenery on the Kenyan coast

Glorious beaches and wonderful wildlife. Fascinating culture and thrilling water sports. And a sleek boutique hotel perfectly placed for making the most of every moment. For lovers of luxury, Hemingways Watamu – sister hotel to the Hemingways Nairobi – is opening up the treasures of the Kenyan coast. If you want to pair an African safari with a stay at the beach, Zanzibar has a new rival.

A fixture of the pristine Watamu Marine National Park for decades, Hemingways Watamu has undergone a contemporary transformation, courtesy of renowned designers, DSA. Spacious rooms and private residences are set among botanical gardens, with every window framing endless Indian Ocean views. If relaxation is on the cards, stroll down to the white sand beach, dip in and out of two pools, or make for the luxury spa. When it comes to dining, savour fresh, local seafood at Hemingways Restaurant and Mediterranean favourites at Gede Café.

When you’re ready to explore, Hemingways Watamu offers plenty of memorable experiences. Sail on a traditional Dhow, or grab a snorkel to discover the Marine Park’s under-the-sea wonders. Take a guided shopping trip into Malindi Town. Or get closer to the region’s wildlife – from seasonal whale watching to a chance for a forest elephant sighting. What better way to earn an ice-cold sundowner back at Hemingways Bar?
