We are delighted and proud to announce that Hemingways Watamu Hotel and Residences has opened its doors once more after an incredible 18 month, $12 million refurbishment!  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 has come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many travellers for close to 30 years.

Ocean Rooms
Spacious and with easy access to the beach and the botanical pool, Ocean Rooms are located in the North Wing of the hotel on the ground and first floor. En-suite bathrooms and a beautiful balcony overlooking the Marine Park provide guests with the utmost comfort and luxury. A green lawn lies in front of the rooms, offering a relaxing place to read and soak up the coastal sunshine.

Hemingways Watamu Deluxe Rooms
Located on the top floor of our North Wing, our Deluxe Rooms offer a whole new flavour of laid back luxury. A bedroom view with nothing but sand, ocean and horizon, Marble tiled en-suite bathrooms and private balconies with jaw dropping views of the bay provide the utmost comfort and privacy. Add to that a flat screen TV and the magical Watamu breeze and you may not want to leave your room.  In keeping with our service standards at Hemingways Nairobi, we’re adding a personalised butler service to our Deluxe Rooms to ensure our guests are fabulously looked after. Training for the butlers as well as the rest of the staff begins in mid September so we’ll be well prepared to welcome our guests back.

Hemingways Private Residences
These ultra lux apartments are located in the South Wing of the hotel and offer 1, 2 and 4 bedroom configurations. The Residences have been designed and finished to the highest degree of modern coastal luxury and feature majestic open terraces with magical views of the beach and Marine Park, comfortable lounge and dining areas flooded with natural light, en-suite bathrooms and fully equipped contemporary kitchens. Guests of the Residences enjoy full access to all hotel facilities with the added benefit of being completely self sufficient if that’s what you’re looking for.  In our two bedroom apartments, both bedrooms have wonderful ocean views and direct access to the beautiful terrace. With both interior and exterior lounging and dining space and a fully equipped modern kitchen, the 2 bedroom apartments have ample room for socialising or retreating to a quiet spot. Ceiling fans, air conditioning and the magical Watamu breeze will all help to keep guests cool.
