Hemingway's enjoys a beachfront location within the world-famous Watamu National Marine Park. A member of 'Small Luxury Hotels of the World', Hemingway's is an exclusive property which offers high standards and attracts a large number of repeat guests. Hemingway's is renowned for its big game fishing and boasts four large big game fishing craft. The cuisine at the resort is of the highest standard and the hotel has won many accolades for its cuisine and dining experience. To stay at Hemingway's is to restore both body and soul. Like the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, the dedication of Hemingway's staff to excellence washes over you in an unbreaking wave of care and sophistication. All guest rooms at the hotel are air-conditioned and overlook Turtle Bay.
In front of the hotel the pristine white beach stretches for several kilometres and is protected by a coral reef. Small coral islands dot the bay including one shaped like a turtle, hence the name.
Deep-sea fishing, diving, snorkelling from glass bottom boats and wind surfing are available from the water sports centre at the hotel. An enjoyable day for the less energetic is to try a hand at bottom fishing in nearby Mida Creek or enjoy an evening "booze cruise" in this mysterious creek lined with mangroves, where one can easily imagine the slave ships of old lurking to pick up their illegal cargo.A few miles inland from the hotel is the ancient ruins of the city of Gedi nestled amongst tangled tropical forest.. This Arab city was suddenly abandoned several centuries ago and, although there are many theories as to why, the truth is still unknown.
