A paradise retreat with a rich history of big game fishing, Hemingways Watamu is just steps from the ocean and Watamu Beach, considered one of the worlds most beautiful. The resort is surrounded by lush, palm-filled gardens with Watamu Marine Park right on the doorstep.
Pools and sun terraces as well as lawns and rich vegetation create an ambience balanced between barefoot charm and total sophistication. The spacious rooms and suites are arranged in traditional thatched buildings decorated in contemporary style with touches of local African art and bold printed fabrics.
Big-game fishing is definitely something you should try here. If that is not for you, go dolphin-watching, snorkelling or take a sunset cruise on Hemingways private dhow. Try the mangrove crab in the restaurant with fresh vegetables from the resorts own farm and then enjoy a nightcap in Hemingways Bar, named after the famous writer.
The Hemingways Watamu is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
