    The Great Oceanic View

    As part of work reorganization, the company send me to watamu to go and familiarize with operations there. I arrived to the hotel in the morning and was welcomed by raging oceanic waves. The hotel is just next to the ocean. During my stay, I had the opportunity to eat fresh sea food, go for swimming and play tennis in the hotel's tennis court. The rooms interiors were excellent with air conditioning and a well stocked mini bar. The management gave an ear to every concern raised. The staff were friendly, open and keen on details. I plan to visit again during my vacation. The establishment should consider own boating services.

    Enjoy the Oceanic View

    The hotel offers a very exclusive view of indian ocean. The service was well coordinated and the staff were very jovial. The hotel has very spacious rooms which are well conditioned. The butlers gave maximum support. Can improve on the spa services by increasing the number of the staff.

    Amazing. We were married in the hotel gardens. It is a very special place!

    I refer to an event held just over 22 years ago. A lot has occurred in the world since then but little has changed it seems as far as the service and excellence offered at Hemingways. The location, in a quiet bay, on a white sandy beach, sheltered with a coral reef just off shore is perfect. We were the second couple ever to be married on the premises and I am sure have been followed by many other fortunate couples. Of course we have fond memories of our stay and the event, but the staff, location and professionalism at Hemingways, Watamu, makes it surely one of the best and unique hotels in the world to this day, where Kenyan hospitality at its best is on offer during every second of guests residence.
