The hemingways resort is a wonderful, very well maintained, clean hotel in Malindi, Kenya. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, clean, and all the technical facilities worked perfectly. Not completely satisfied I was with the room service, since for example towels not partially replaced or properly folded - altogether it was but only details, to complain about would. The area of the restaurant was very neat and clean, the staff very service oriented. Highly recommendable the fish. Also liked very much our group also the from the hotel offered dinner on a dhow in a nahegelegten Bay - really great ... ambience, excellent food and very hardworking staff. A negative point was during our stay the staff at reception, the only repeated inquire further and a lot of time in the location was a address on an invoice to change - in other hotels this category this is in 2 minutes. The beach at the hotel is wonderful, as well as the ocean view and the small islets nearby. In the immediate vicinity it is furthermore because of the secluded location very quiet, because of the location far outside takes however the arrival and from to the airport Mombasa on 2 hours.

Information about Hotel Hemingways Resort

Hotel Information

hotel.de

hotel.de *

A paradise retreat with a rich history of big game fishing, Hemingways Watamu is just steps from the ocean and Watamu Beach, considered one of the worlds most beautiful. The resort is surrounded by lush, palm-filled gardens with Watamu Marine Park right on the doorstep. Pools and sun terraces as well as lawns and rich vegetation create an ambience balanced between barefoot charm and total sophistication. The spacious rooms and suites are arranged in traditional thatched buildings decorated in contemporary style with touches of local African art and bold printed fabrics. Big-game fishing is definitely something you should try here. If that is not for you, go dolphin-watching, snorkelling or take a sunset cruise on Hemingways private dhow. Try the mangrove crab in the restaurant with fresh vegetables from the resorts own farm and then enjoy a nightcap in Hemingways Bar, named after the famous writer. The Hemingways Watamu is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
