Kenya / Hemingways Watamu

The upscale Hemingways Watamu, set on a blissful white sand beach within a Marine Park, has recently emerged resplendent from a top-to-toe refurbishment. New raised walkways wind down through the landscaped gardens to the shore; an open-plan restaurant and coffee garden have been added; a second swimming pool, a wellness centre and an infinity ‘night sky’ shallow pool have opened. Smartly refreshed Deluxe rooms on the top floor and Superior rooms at ground level offer a blend of comfort and chic design – Egyptian cottons, wi-fi access, fully stocked mini bars and entrancing ocean vistas. Added to this are the sparkling new Residences with a mix of 1, 2 and 4 bed uber lux apartments with huge terraces and magical ocean views. Dine alfresco in the brasserie style main restaurant with its focus on fresh local seafood with a spicy Swahili twist, savour sushi in the Rock Bar by the pool and mingle later in the iconic Hemingways Bar. Safari into Tsavo National Park to see the Big 5, or enjoy watersports including snorkelling and paddle boarding in the Marine Park, with PADI diving courses on hand for scuba fans. A visit to the ruins at Gede is a cultural must along with a long lunch at a nearby Italian beach bar or a sunset dinner at Pilipan.

When is the best time to visit Kenya?

January to March is hot and dry with the long rains usually falling from April to early June. Between June and October it is warm and dry during the day but cold at night. The migration usually arrives in the Mara from July with river crossings from Tanzania generally taking place between July and September. The herds rest in Kenya before crossing back to Tanzania in October/November. Kenya’s coast enjoys a tropical climate – April to June can be humid, tempered by monsoon winds. Nairobi is pleasant year round due to its altitude.
