Hemingways Watamu

Welcome to Hemingways Watamu. This Indian Ocean luxury 5 star boutique beach hotel in Kenya is everyone’s favorite and our guests just keep coming back for more. An iconic tropical paradise on the Kenyan coast sitting right in the middle of the pristine Watamu Marine National Park with its idyllic white sand beach and turquoise waters. The exceptional personal service and sincere charm of this established hotel has come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many travellers for close to 30 years. And it’s just got even better with a mega makeover. There is so much to do here – learn to kite-surf; get your PADI certificate, take a sunset dhow cruise on Mida Creek, play a round of golf on the nearby world class golf course, Vipingo Ridge; or go on safari for a few days in Tsavo or the Maasai Mara. If that all sounds a little too energetic, relax around the pool with a good book as you work your way through our cocktail menu. Watamu – meaning “home of the sweet people” in Swahili – is a small village on the Kenyan coast approximately 120kms north of Mombasa – Kenya’s second largest city. It is also 20kms south of Malindi – Vasco de Gama’s first landing point on the coast of East Africa. Watamu’s shoreline features pristine white sand beaches and offshore coral formations arranged in different bays and sheltered by a reef. Read More...

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara Camp

Hemingways Ol Seki Mara Camp
Ol Seki Mara Camp is a beautifully luxurious camp, located in the heart of Eastern Koiyaki in the South East of Kenya. There are six very spacious rounded safari tents, each boasting a panoramic view of the famous Maasai Mara. This relaxed, informal camp is situated in the remote Koiyaki area adjacent to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve and is surrounded by wonderful wildlife viewing. At Ol Seki guests can enjoy the big 5 game viewing in the privacy of a game reserve away from the hustle of mass tourism. Guests can enjoy a truly isolated safari experience that winds back the colonial clock. Ol Seki focuses on quality, and priority is placed on attention to detail. The property is situated in the Naboisho Conservancy, which borders the Masai Mara, and the lack of fences between the two means that the wildlife is free to roam, thus ensuring the potential for great game viewing. The handful of large, very comfortable canvas tents have wooden decks from which guests can enjoy optimal views of the surrounding scenery. There are also welcoming spaces where you can socialise with your fellow guests over drinks, such as the library tent. The majority of the staff here grew up within a short distance of the lodge and are therefore a font of knowledge on the flora, fauna and geography of the area. Read More...
