Watamu is increasingly devoted to hospitality, like no other tourist resort on the Kenyan coast.
Within a few kilometers of extension, the "pearl of the Indian Ocean" can count as many as twenty resorts of level and with services and reception superior to those of simple beds or apartments, as well as many other small solutions, including bed & breakfast, small boutique hotels and residences.
There are facilities that operate all year round, such as the 7 Islands Resort, on the beach opposite the so-called love bay, next to the famous local Paparemo Beach, or even the Lily Palm Resort with the adjoining restaurant bar Mapango, which overlooks another of the beautiful inlets of the town.
There is the Jacaranda Resort, which dominates the bay of the same name, on the white beach in front of the sandy atolls of the coral reef commonly known as "Sardegna Due".
There is Crystal Bay, another property owned by the Lenzi family (such as 7Islands and Paparemo) and partly managed by the Italian operator Vera Tour. There is the elegant Medina Palms, the latest addition to the top class resorts, but already internationally known.
Just a stone's throw from the beach, in the centre of the resort, you will also find the Aquarius, a historic structure in revitalisation, while towards the Mida Creek you will find the resort Garoda and the smaller, well-kept Kobe Suite Resort (with an excellent restaurant with the same name) that overlooks one of Watamu's charming beaches, called Garoda Beach. Not far away is also the Temple Point, once managed by Italian and now German.
Other resorts that work particularly well with Italian customers and "holiday packages" are Twiga, Eden Village, Watamu Bay, Barracuda and Sun Palm.
Particular and exclusive is the Lonno Lodge, a small ecoresort by the sea, as well as the Mawe.
They work more with local and Anglo-Saxon customers than the historic Ocean Sports and the larger Turtle Bay.
In the centre there is also the Mawimbi, with suites and apartments.

I'm afraid I'm not a fanatic of the sea and the hot holiday.
I do not even go for the resorts and the organized holidays.
The thing that brought me to Africa, Kenya, was the need for relaxation.
