Hotel Review: Turtle Bay Beach Club – Watamu, Kenya

Kate Webster

Turtle Bay Beach Club is an all-inclusive beachfront property located in the beachside town of Watamu, Kenya.

Set inside the internationally acclaimed Watamu National Marine Park, the resort has a tropical ambience mixed with an African feel.

When you think Kenya, you wouldn’t normally think of a beachside escape, however this property offers just that.

The African feel comes is echoed throughout the resort with neutral browns and ocean blues. All rooms include private balconies and come with air conditioning. Bathrooms are equipped with bathtubs.

The beachfront rooms offer the best views as they are located right on the beach front. Whitewashed furniture throughout the rooms just enhance the beach feel, and from these rooms you can sleep with the door open and enjoy the warm breeze off the ocean.
