Hemingways Watamu is a luxury resort hotel in an unrivalled Kenyan setting on the white sands of Watamu Bay, where the crystal waters form one of Kenya’s finest stretches of beach. It is an area of great beauty, from the coral reefs to the ruins of ancient Gede.
The hotel has 76 luxury bedrooms and six private suites. The beach is charming and there is a fantastic range of water sports activities on offer while the bar is high on atmosphere. Hemingway’s is renowned for its excellent game fishing as it is the ideal spot for big game fishing trips owing to the profusion of species in the Indian Ocean, with black, blue and striped marlin, sailfish and broad-billed swordfish. Salt-water fly fishing and light line fishing are all available. There are also non-water based activities available for those seeking a bit of variation such as hiking through the forest in search of rare birds.
And for those who fish, the Chefs will prepare your catch exactly as you would like it. You might like Japanese style sashimi, finely sliced with soya sauce and wasabi or maybe blackened Cajun style fillets, or simply steamed! Which ever way, you will never eat fish fresher than this.
