Watamu Treehouse has been named a “Best Hotel in Kenya” and it’s no wonder why! Located on Kenya’s serene Watamu Beach and built high amongst the treetops, this hotel offers guests an unreal view of the Indian Ocean coastline and lush surrounding forests. It’s the perfect getaway for those looking for a peaceful retreat. In fact, the mission of the Watamu Treehouse is “to contribute to the journey of healing and health.”

This treehouse is not your typical wooden structure. Rather, it is made up of two white stone towers, peppered with colourful panels of recycled glass, made by local artist and conservationist Nani Croze. The North Tower has three double bedrooms and the South Tower has four. Each room has its own bathroom, amazing views and is completely unique. All of the rooms have their own charm. Treehouse also includes a pool that is shared by both towers.

However, the real treat is all of the activities on offer! From the relaxing Lakshmi Spa in Watamu to Treehouse Yoga and Meditation classes, there are plenty of ways to recharge. The rooftop studio, the highest point in Watamu, is an amazing place to enjoy the sunset yoga classes. Treehouse also offers daily nature trips on kayaks and stand-up paddleboards that everyone can enjoy. And for the more adventurous, there’s kitesurfing right in front of Treehouse with Tribe Watersports, the Bio-Ken Snake Farm just a ten-minute drive away, or an outing at the remote and charming Che Shale Lodge.
