“ A truly magical place, without a doubt the highlight of our trip on the Kenyan coast.”

Staying at the Watamu Treehouse was an overall fantastic experience. A unique location with stunning views, beautifully designed and comfortable rooms and a friendly and professional staff. The food was tasty, healthy and very well cooked. This is a small family owned business: Paul, the owner, and his staff truly cared about us from the moment we sent our booking request to the time we checked out. We're already looking forward to our next stay at the treehouse!

“Whimsical and relaxing”
Reviewed 9 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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.

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!
