We came to Al Hamra with no expectations….what awaited us was beyond what we could have imagined! We were so pleasantly surprised to enter into a world of beauty, peace, amazing service and incredible attention to detail, which transported us into a haven we never wanted to leave.
Thank you to Lesley and the wonderful staff for making our short trip a memory for a life time!!
P.S a paradise indeed. Congrats to Lesley and Nigel.
Thanks to everyone for making our stay truly memorable.
Lesley and Nigel for your generous hospitality and charming company.

A beautiful place to be in an amazing country. Must return soon!!!

The architecture, serenity and the service are better than the best the world has to offer.
We shall return!!!!
The staff are outstanding, they made the family comfortable and they are family friendly.
We are sure our clients will be happy staying over.
Thanks for those very relaxing 2 days.
We have been to some amazing places in Europe Asia and America but this surpasses anywhere we have stayed in terms of luxury and high end accommodation. Stunning interior design and decor, with a highly detailed finish. Each suite has an indoors-outdoors relaxation area nestled amongst the treetops. The infinity salt plunge pool and swimming pool are beautiful in the sunshine or at sunset when the lights come on.
There is an outstanding level of service and attention to small details from freshly washed and ironed laundry to hand picked flowers from housekeeping to pre-dinner drinks and afternoon tea.
The food is delicious. Everything is … Read More »
Al Hamra is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever visited in my life. It is exquisitely put together and each little touch is so wonderfully considered. The pool is amazing, and it looks so enticing from the moment you arrive. The bedrooms are luxurious without being ostentatious, and the décor feels as if it’s been plucked from the palaces of those traders which profited most from the Arabian spice routes hundreds of years ago.
The staff are friendly, attentive and the most smiley and welcoming people I’ve ever met.
I will go again as soon as my schedule allows me to
Thank you for taking care of us. It was exceptional.
What an astonishing place, unfortunately the range of my vocabulary will not do this beautiful house justice, suffice to say it is the most amazing house I’ve ever stayed in, the architecture is superb and the interior has been furnished and designed quite perfectly. Coupled with the fact that it is situated on this fantastic white sandy beach, I feel very lucky to have spent time here and also in the company of the owners of the property who went out of their way to make my stay even more memorable, thank you for ‘making things happen’.
To Nigel and all the staff at Al Hamra, thank you for what was comfortably one of the best trips I’ve ever experienced. What an introduction to Kenya! Watamu is such a beautiful place and Al Hamra allows you to experience it in such luxury. I have to say I’m very fortunate to have been allowed to stay here and cannot thank Nigel enough for his generosity. Hopefully this won’t be my last encounter with Kenya as it’s quite easy to see why so many people fall in love with the place.
3 weeks in Al Hamra- what a trip! There is no better way to stay in Watamu! Thank you so much to Nigel, Alberto and all the staff for making it so special. I hope I can return soon to continue the charity work we have started. One of the highlights must be watching a turtle relieve itself on Robbie’s shirt!
What a great end to the day, sitting on the roof terrace, with a cold beer, watching the sun set. We have loved every minute here and will be back, many thanks for all the great hospitality.
A wonderful environment, interesting talk, great food and wine,
lovely people. I will suggest this place to anyone travelling in Kenya.
Just a great place for those up for some extreme Kite Surfing, many of the hotels here are closed for the month, but we are still open …so call us for a late booking.
Thank you for a wonderful stay, credit to the staff for
service and to the chef for exquisite food. Great Place.
To the Al Hamra Team, thank you for making
our stay so comfortable and enjoyable.
We had a great time.
Nigel and Lesley,
We have no words, it’s beyond our expectations. Al Hamra is truly a feel of royalty. Thank you.
Lovely relaxing time, nice to be pampered. Service great and food excellent.
Special country, special place, very special people… Samson (et al) is a star!
The best time ever! The house is breath taking and the staff were amazing! Thank you Janice, Baya and Samson. Wish we didn’t have to leave.
A beautiful vacation! The staff is wonderful. Thank you Samson and Baya!
Nigel and Lesley, Supa Oleng!
We wish to take this opportunity to thank you both for letting us spend the weekend at this amazing house. Indeed it is a piece of paradise, far from what we thought it to be. The staff are really amazing. The food is fantastic and very well presented.
We feel very lucky to have been able to stay in such a wonderfully designed house. The combination of open, airy luxury and the friendly, efficient staff has made this the perfect break. Special mention must go to the fantastic food, every meal a triumph!
It is difficult to return to the ‘real’ world after this great week and we will be counting the days until a return. Thank you all!
There really are not words to express what a wonderful spot this is. An amazing house in an amazing spot. The staff are all excellent and we have been made to feel very welcome and relaxed. The whole experience is something we would want to repeat… Often.
I thought the Dhow house was superb, but Al Hamra exceeds all my expectations. Lesley Anne is truly inspirational with her attention and design and fine detail.
The staff have been most charming and very keen to please. The pace of life for me was very relaxed, just what I needed. I hope I get the opportunity to return before too long. Thank you Lesley and Nigel for having a fantastic holiday destination.
Dear Anna, James, Paul, Samson, Baya and Janice,
You have all been part of making our summer before heading off to Uni, perfect. We are so lucky to have stayed in a wonderful house.
Anna has been ever so hospitable, lending us her kayak which had a lot of fun in but also taking us out to Savannah to the quiz-THAT WE WON!! Thanks Anna!
To all the staff, you have catered to our every need and more and made us feel very welcome and safe. We are currently writing this lying by the pool with an endless glass of mango juice-we really thank you all.
Thank you so much for letting us come and stay-it was a magical week, that none of us will ever forget! And we hope to be back soon! Many thanks
p.s A master piece in architecture and peace.
Just a short note to thank the staff at Al Hamra for my lovely stay here in Watamu. I have had a super time, and enjoyed wonderful service from all of you and were very attentive and always smiling. The many interesting trips I embarked upon made my stay all the more enjoyable and confirmed my intention to return soon to sunny Kenya.
