We all deserve a little relaxation, which is why watamu is the perfect sanctuary to get away from life in the fast lane. Our naturally warm and friendly team are always there to attend to your every need, which allows you the time to unwind.
Join our Wellness Retreat!
The pool is the perfect place for the whole family to chill out and spend a long afternoon, dozing in the sun. Spend the day being taken care of by our excellent team, and indulge in the delicious flavours from our restaurant or pizza bar. Or unwind and reenergise with the sea breeze, and a cup of Kenya’s famous coffee, from our café.
Ocean Sports is the ultimate place to set your devices aside, soak up the sun and surround yourself with beauty. However, if connection to the real world is required, there is Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel, so you can get your work done from an idyllic spot beneath the palm trees. Take in a sunrise walk along the rockpools and meet the marine life that dwell there during low tide. Or contact reception to organise a yoga session, to start your day feeling fully refreshed.
Leave your cares behind and go exploring on stand-up paddle board through the mangroves of Mida creek or get your blood pumping on a cycling excursion around Watamu. Enjoy a traditional dhow trip and take in the calming qualities of the sunset forming across the iconic African sky, then once the sun has set, enjoy a front row seat to marvel at the sparkling milky way above.
5 days of being kind to yourself.
Wake up with yoga - followed by a healthy breakfast - kayak through the mangroves - spend a relaxing afternoon on the sand banks or opt for a more active one, zooming through the forest - top it off with a mindfulness workshop held by international psychotherapist - then a delicious dinner cooked to your specific tastes - and fall asleep to the sound of the waves.
Our enthusiastic Retreat Team will host daily exercise classes in beautiful surroundings.
A relaxing dhow trip and paddle boarding to look for dolphins are just some of the excursions you can look forward to.
You can make the most of these activities or simply kick back and relax in a hammock with a refreshing smoothie.
