Hemingways Hotel and Residences update

Firstly, thank you for your patience – we know that you are as excited as we are about the ‘new look’ Hemingways Watamu.  The rebuilding works are progressing well and whilst it has been a huge project we are on course for a completion date in November 2017.  So what’s new?
Hemingways Watamu Hotel
Our new boutique hotel comprises 39 guest rooms (reduced from 74), located on three floors of the North Wing block of the property, overlooking the Marine Park.
A new porte cochère, hotel reception and raised walkway winding down through landscaped gardens to the hotel terrace has been designed. The restaurant and bar roof structures have been retained, however the circular super-structure of each has been altered to create an open plan design – but dont worry, the iconic bar remains in place! The reception area structure has been removed and transformed into an open plan coffee garden looking out onto the terrace/ocean to the south and new landscape gardens to the north. The existing terrace and pool areas have been completely redesigned with an additional new water feature, complete with beautiful landscaped gardens incorporating a sandy beach effect.  A second new pool has been constructed behind the North Wing block of the property and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and adjacent to this can be found the stunning new spa and gymnasium.

Hemingways Private Residences
The 21 luxury apartments have been designed and constructed by the same team that built Hemingways Nairobi which was completed in 2013 and is now rated in the top 5 hotels in Africa.  They represent coastal luxury at its very best,  comprising 3 x 1 bedrooms, 16 x 2 bedrooms and 2 x 4 bedrooms, all of which are ocean facing and have large terraces. These stunning apartments will all have access to the amenities of the 5 star Hemingways Watamu Hotel.

In a nutshell…..

– 39 Bedrooms and 21 Private Residences all with fantastic ocean views
– New open plan restaurant – but the iconic Bar remains in place
– New reception and raised walkway through landscaped gardens
– New Gede themed open plan coffee shop and garden looking out onto the terrace and Marine Park
– New water features on the terrace – including an infinity “night sky” shallow pool overlooking the beach
– New second swimming pool behind the North Wing surrounded by beautiful gardens
– New spa and gymnasium adjacent to this new hotel pool
– Reinstated sea defenses that fit together like Lego and aligned at 45°

Exciting redevelopment at Hemingways Watamu!

Hemingways Watamu investment project

The Hemingways Collection is pleased to announce the launch of an exciting investment project at its coast property, Hemingways Watamu.
Beginning in April 2016, the investment in Hemingways Watamu will significantly improve and revive this iconic hotel on the Kenyan coast and bring it up to the 5* standard of the other world renowned Hemingways Collection properties – Hemingways Nairobi and Ol Seki Hemingways Mara.

The property will be transformed into a 39 room luxury boutique hotel, all with exceptional sea views of the Indian Ocean, together with a private residential development on the seafront comprising 15 luxury apartments. Substantial upgrades and renovations will also be made to the communal areas including the restaurant, bars, reception, swimming pools, spa and gym with emphasis placed on optimizing the famous views of the Watamu Marine Park and exquisite landscaping throughout.

As a result of the redevelopment, Hemingways Watamu will be closed from April 18th 2016. The project is planned to last 18 months and we expect to receive new bookings from October 2017 onward. We look forward to sharing more information and detail on the project in due course and hope that you’ll be as excited as we are at the results.
