Awakening in Watamu: A Gift of Grace

“Whether you are an adventure junkie or looking for a relaxing and quiet getaway, once you arrive you will never want to leave the Watamu Treehouse. Amazing rooms immersed in nature, delicious food that is healthy and catered to the individual, and the most friendly staff that welcomes you like family. I can say this was my first rooftop sunset looking out over a vast jungle and beautiful beach while watching monkeys jump from tree to tree below me. There should not be another location topping Watamu Treehouse on your bucket list.”  

Marcus, San Francisco, July 2018

Watamu combines the relaxation of a tropical beach holiday
with the sense of adventure experienced on wilderness safari. Building has taken place on the small footprint in the forest that was cleared for utility use by the previous owners. No trees were cut down in the process. The unique building style of using local materials to create a direct connection with nature was perfected by Sala Terrena Creative Construction, and it complemented the recycled hand-blown glass from Kitengela Glass and Anslem’s Hot Glass.

In 2014 the pool and yoga studio were added and Treehouse became a year-round boutique hotel and retreat centre. In 2017 Treehouse started hosting other teachers’ retreats as a core-business. In 2018, a second yoga room and massage room were added to meet the demand. And so it continues…. .

TO BE OF SERVICE: This is our purpose

This week of will be filled with soul liberating experiences. We retreat to reconnect, to restore balance and to renew the senses. We give from a soul level in great respect, we are of service to those around us no matter upbringing or location. We are yogis. Come not only to take a break for yourself but also to embark on a journey of peace and transformation. This will be the perfect uplifting experience to enhance your mind, body, and spirit.

Kacy and Jocelyn join forces to bring a beautiful experience to practitioners of all levels.
