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.
