I came to Al Hamra with my brother for a break. The entire trip was a dream. We were greeted on arrival by very friendly staff with a cold fresh juice and showed to our spacious room by the pool. The property was very pretty. The architecture, the hand made furniture and the bright colours were lovely. It served as... More

Al Hamra, Wow! by far the most unique and luxurious place we have stayed. On entering the villa we were met by the very attentive staff and shown to our beautiful suite.

Beautiful setting, fantastic food, great atmosphere, lovely staff :) Thats what i would say in short. Al Hamra changed my typical perception of coastal holidays. From the unique swahili inspired designs to the infinity indoor pool that channels into the larger pool giving endless calm and tranquility to the endless smiles of the wonderful staff, Al Hamra gives you a...

Al Hamra is a private villa on the Indian Ocean coast of Kenya, in Watamu. Being a marine reserve, the beach is pristine with no (or very little) buildings, chairs, structures on the beach. We couldn't have been more spoiled at Al Hamra, with a staff of 4 to take care of us, cook for us, etc. The pools are... More
