About Hemingways Watamu
Named after Kenya’s most famous literary visitor, Hemingways Watamu is a five-star boutique property set on the white sands of the African coast. Stay in elegant accommodation with guaranteed views of the Indian Ocean. There are 39 rooms and 21 apartments available, the latter sleeping up to four and an ideal option for groups and families.
Whilst staying here, sample sublime seafood at the restaurant, or sip a sundowner at the beachfront bar, surrounded by sand and sea. When you’re not paddling in the ocean, you can take a dip in the warm waters of the botanical pool. At the on-site spa, indulge in relaxing and rejuvenating therapies.
Be sure to take advantage of the property’s excellent location. Catch kingfish on-board one of the hireable boats, watch the sun set during a cruise along Mida Creek, putt your way around the world-class golf course nearby, or head out on safari at one of Kenya’s renowned nature reserves. Following a day of roaming grasslands for a glimpse of the Big Five, return to the luxury and comfort of Hemingways Watamu.
