Hemingways Resort


This Indian Ocean beach resort is everyone’s favorite. Our guests just keep coming back for more. Maybe it’s the location – right in the middle of the pristine white sand beach of Watamu; perhaps it’s the big game fishing – one of the top destinations in the world for this sport; or maybe it’s the fantastic personal service and sincere charm of this established hotel that has come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many families and couples over the years.

Our 76 rooms are all air-conditioned and en-suite and our restaurant serves the freshest sea-food, straight from the ocean. There’s just so much to do here – relax in the poolside bar of the resort working your way through our


cocktail menu; play a round of golf on the nearby world class course, Vipingo Ridge; learn to kite-surf; get your PADI certificate, take a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek; or go on safari for a few days in Tsavo or the Masai Mara. If the world is your oyster – Hemingways is your pearl.”

Our bright, airy rooms all offer a view of the Indian Ocean horizon. Repose in the comfort of muted colours, cool cotton, fresh flowers and a private balcony, only a whisper away from the white sands of the shore. Our personal room-service operates 24 hours. Every room is en-suite, air-conditioned and has mosquito netting, a fridge and a personal safe. You’ll also find a fan, telephone, minibar, hairdryer and kettle in your room.
