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.
The hotel’s varied cuisine is highly regarded, with attentive service to match, and our staff are renowned for their courtesy and friendliness. Hemingway’s 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 fishing, dolphin watching, snorkelling and diving. For inland activities we offer a variety of personal safaris with our own experienced guides.

Located on the first floor, Green Hills and Key West have been upgraded from Junior Suites to Executive, by providing a separate bedroom with ensuite bathroom, and an open plan lounge and dining area. The rooms have been individually furnished to the highest standard using hand made pieces designed by Armando Tanzini and Charles Tyle, with original paintings by Lisa Dickinson. In a slight departure from the norm at Hemingways, the flooring of the living and bedroom area is to be finished in a dark hardwood, rather than a ceramic tile, thus giving the rooms even more individuality. Both suites will have satellite television.
