A luxury tropical retreat on one of Kenya's finest beaches. Hemingways is a 74 room resort Hotel overlooking the stunning beach of Watamu Marine Park, 20 miles south of Malindi and 60 miles north of Mombasa. The ambience of the hotel is of relaxed sophistication, with the friendliness of a privately owned hotel coupled to the facilities and standards of an International resort.
Our beach was voted by the Sunday Times as being one of the top 10 beaches in the world, there being just 4 hotels on as many miles of coast and guarded by the finest of tropical barrier reefs.
3 miles down the coast from Hemingways is Mida, a tidal lagoon of mangrove creeks teeming with exotic bird-life and the venue for our Sundowner cruises on an Arabic dhow, whilst out to sea there is our famous deep sea fishing, wild dolphin watching, snorkeling and diving.
For the more energetic we have a wide range of excursions and facilities, from local shopping trips and sightseeing to tailor made safari adventures all with our own experienced guides.
Hemingways is a truly unique and exceptional destination for your tropical holiday.
