On Turtle Bay beach at Watamu, two hours’ drive north of Mombasa, Hemingways Watamu is a mid-sized game-fishing base and resort hotel, popular with British guests. Its name harks back to Ernest Hemingway’s stay in Malindi in 1934. Unfortunately, as of March 2015 we cannot recommend this property because the UK's foreign office has advised against travel to this area – Mombasa Island to the Tana Delta.

Our view of Hemingways Watamu

From October to April, because of the fishing, it can feel as if there’s little else to do, and nothing at all for children. In fact, there's a good range of activities and, while Hemingways is possibly resting a little too comfortably on its laurels, and is certainly too staid for some, it could suit first-timers looking for a British atmosphere. The staff are mostly thoughtful and friendly, and many guests form lasting connections from repeat visits.
