Our community is precious. As an established business in Watamu that has seen the area develop and grow over the last two decades, we do our best to contribute to wider community life beyond Hemingways. Our involvement includes maintaining roads, supporting the local school and clinic, promoting ecotourism and recycling as well as fulfilling our role as a founding member of Watamu Marine Association (WMA).
Within the hotel, we have an ingenious internal eco-system of water and energy conservation and sustainable waste management. It might interest you that we have our own water treatment plant that recycles waste water for use in the garden hoses. And the organic waste from the kitchen becomes nutritious compost for our herb and vegetable garden.
