Hemingways is an oasis of peace and calm, set on one of the world's best beaches at the sleepy village of Watamu, two hours north of Mombasa.
The wide, white beaches and Watamu Marine Park and nearby Sokoke Forest, with 260 recorded bird species including the endangered spotted ground thrush, Sokoke scops owl, Sokoke pipit, East coast akalat, and Clarke’s weaver are the main attractions of the area. Hermingways Watamu began life as a fishing lodge and has evolved into one of the best hotels on the Kenya coast.
All 76 air-conditioned rooms offer sea view and are steps away from the seven-kilometre stretch of pristine, sandy beach. Hermingways Watamu offers everything you would expect from a top establishment, including two swimming pools, a gym, beauty treatments and massage, snorkelling, scuba diving and the legendary big-game fishing. The fact that 30 per cent of its guests have been before speaks for itself.
