Our mission is to inspire guests on their personal journey of health - physical, mental and emotional. We exist to share the best we know with others, which is a lifestyle in harmony with the natural environment.

The first version of the house was created in 1992 as a single-room home where the Krystall family came for their holidays. Over the years, the house expanded and the family’s ‘endless summers‘ - full of nature adventures, healthy-food, and yoga – evolved into today’s Watamu Treehouse.

  • Treehouse is very high up above the ground it's quite risky to have an infant who is just learning to walk, walking around the towers. The parents need to commit they will be watching over their child for 100% of the time.

    They have created such a peaceful space to come and practice yoga. If you’re planning a trip to Watamu and are into yoga, don’t miss out on their daily classes with a 360 degree view and the pleasure of watching the sunset after your class

    My stay and experience at Watamu Treehouse was absolutely magical, loved every bit of it. It is a gorgeous property built on a tree. The design is so unique, calming and quiet. The service is really good, Daniella in the office is just lovely and so helpful with anything you want even making a pizza order on your behalf from a different hotel. Chipi in the kitchen took time to explain every meal. I got to do relaxing yoga with a great teacher, so you are in for a treat if yoga is your thing. I stayed for 3 nights and will definitely go back again.

    Amazing! If you get a chance, go here and do the float through the mangroves. Not the canoe, but the float and swim through the mangroves. Baraka and Kingi were amazing guides and it lasts about 2 hours swimming through here. One of the best. Thank you for the memories.
