“Whimsical and relaxing”

person found this review helpful

This is a truly unique place to spend a beach holiday. The house is Whimsical and every day you notice some new beautiful detail of inlaid glasswork and funky design. The location is ideal for accessing the white sand beach, and has sweeping views in all directions. Each bedroom is unique and fascinatingly designed. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. The chef was great and we had all the help and advice we could ask for when arranging activities. If you want a magically unique beach vacation, this is the place.

Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Watamu Treehouse is a truly relaxing place for your beach vacation. Never before have I gone to a hotel and felt utterly happy simply staying on the premises. Wonderful staff. Delicious food. Gorgeous views. Excellent massages. Stay here for sure!

“An incredible space, wonderful people and amazing energy”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Treehouse never fails to impress me with its hospitality, warmth, uniqueness, luxury and peacefulness... Paul, Josephat, Kingi, Jackson, Peris and the rest of the team are welcoming and bend over backwards to make my stay enjoyable and special every time. An incredible location with sweeping 360 degree views, uniquely crafted architecture and room design, and a serenity that allows me to unplug completely and immerse myself in this restorative experience. *The* place to stay if you're in Watamu.

“The best place on Earth!”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I am absolutely in love with Watamu Treehouse. The concept and feeling there is so authentic. The Treehouse is like something out of a dream! The open airy feel is like nothing we've ever experienced before. We went with 18 people (adults and kids between the ages of 7-12 years old). We swam with dolphins, snorkeled, paddle boarded, participated in yoga class, got massages, played on the beach and enjoyed amazing food. Paul and his staff are amazing and were able to completely accommodate all of our crazy groups' ideas and interests. I can't recommend this place enough!!! I hope we get to go every year.
