The hotel in detail

A beachside retreat in one of one of East Africa's finest big-game fishing destinations, Hemingways Watamu overlooks the stunning beach of Watamu Marine Park. With a fabulous day spa, a wide array of international cuisines, numerous water sports and activities, plus a traditional Arabic dhow, this is the perfect way to encounter Kenya.

The low thatched buildings at Hemingways Watamu blend well into the coastal environment. The rooms and suites are contemporary in design with distinct local touches in the woodwork and artefacts. Palm-filled gardens and spacious public rooms provide a refined yet relaxed atmosphere.

Be sure to go fishing on a big game vessel. Then bring your catch back to Hemingways Watamu and the chef will cook it any way you wish. Enjoy snorkelling in the marine park or take to the waters for dolphin, whale or turtle watching. In the evening, take a sunset cruise on a dhow and return for a sumptuous seafood dinner in the restaurant.
