A luxury tropical retreat on one of Kenya's finest beaches. 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.

Junior Suites

Junior Suites are available on all three floors. They have super king-sized beds, large baths, as well as showers and a lounge area.

Executive suites

In addition to the ongoing refurbishment of our bathrooms, we are pleased to announce the complete refurbishment of two of our suites. 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.

As with the refurbishment of all our bathrooms, tiles, marbles and fixtures have all been imported and finished to the highest standards, however in Green Hills and Key West we have gone a stage further, incorporating "His & Hers " basins, "Step" in corner baths, Bidets and an Extra large shower.

For those wishing to entertain in their room, a kitchenette / service area has been incorporated, along with a guest cloakroom and shower. A further facility is the optional use of a superior room adjacent with inter-connecting doors to accommodate children or family.
