Welcome to Denhum Holidays


Hemingway’s Watamu Overview

Hemingway’s Watamu is 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 have come to represent Kenyan coastal luxury to so many travelers for close to 30 years. 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.

Hemingways Watamu Accommodation

Bright, airy rooms measuring 40m² with en-suite bathrooms and private balconies all offering exceptional views of the Indian Ocean – a view you wish you woke up to every morning. There are 13 newly renovated Deluxe Ocean View Rooms on the second floor of our North Wing and 26 Ocean View Rooms on the ground and first floor.


There is something to everyone’s taste at Hemingway’s Watamu. Served in our main restaurant, breakfast offers a range of options to suit all types from the super hungry, the health-conscious, or the continental. For a mid-morning treat, specialty coffees, cakes, and the finest gelato are available at the Gede Coffee Gardens.
The Gede menu also includes a varied selection of delicious wraps, sandwiches, and sharing platters plus a variety of grilled meats and seafood along with healthy salads, perfect for lunches, and more casual evenings.
