“Welcome to Hemingways Watamu,
This Indian Ocean beach resort is everyone’s favourite. Our guests just keep coming back for more. Maybe it’s the location - right in the middle of the pristine white sand beach of Watamu; perhaps it’s the big game fishing - one of the top destinations in the world for this sport; or maybe it’s the fantastic personal service and sincere charm of this established hotel that has come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many families and couples over the years.
Our 76 rooms are all air-conditioned and en-suite and our restaurant serves the freshest sea-food, straight from the ocean. There’s just so much to do here - relax in the poolside bar of the resort working your way through our cocktail menu; play a round of golf on the nearby world class course, Vipingo Ridge; learn to kite-surf; get your PADI certificate, take a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek; or go on safari for a few days in Tsavo or the Masai Mara. If the world is your oyster - Hemingways is your pearl.”
Garry Cullen, Managing Director, Hemingways Watamu
“Normally the thought of a week long stay at a beach resort would not be at the top of my list, but this is Hemingways and it is paradise - plus the bonus that I have a 4-day boat charter booked to immerse myself in my favourite pass-time, big game fishing.
"Every time I stay here, the first thing I do before accepting the fresh passion juice and cold towel, is to go and stare at the breath-taking view. The second sensation to hit me is the strong perfume wafting from huge displays of fresh cut lilies and roses - they are everywhere.”
