What's good about Hemingways Watamu?

Hemingways Watamu

Discover the beautiful beaches, sublime diving and wonderful wildlife of Kenya’s coast at Hemingways Watamu, a luxury resort set on pristine Turtle Bay.

Hemingways Watamu 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. The exceptional personal service and sincere charm of this established hotel have come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many travelers for close to 30 years. And it’s just got even better with a mega makeover.

There is so much to do here – learn to kite-surf; get your PADI certificate, take a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek, play a round of golf on the nearby world-class golf course, Vipingo Ridge; or go on safari for a few days in Tsavo or the Maasai Mara. If that all sounds a little too energetic, relax around the pool with a good book as you work your way through our cocktail menu.

Hemingways Watamu, the best 5-star luxury hotel in Kenya, offering exceptional services and comfort. This boutique hotel in Watamu is the place for you.
