A nice break away from winter and the suite was comfortable and clean. Staff were happy, kind and obviously proud of the hotel and enjoyed working there. The island is expensive to get to and everything is very overpriced - cannot understand why, but maybe because of the French influence. Reunion is a bit "Third World" so if you are... More

Palm is a design hotel in Indonesian style. Very attractive and excellent situated for visiting the inland and do the walk to the top of the Piton La Fournaise volcano (start early, count at least 6 hours difficult walking). The entrance and view over site and the sea are spectacular. The reception was perfect. The room, a junior suite, we... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Palm Hotel in Petite Ile, south of Reunion Island. First of all the location is great, either before going to the volcano or resting after the hike, or as a starting point to the great landscape of the Wild South. The hotel is not on the beach, but golf carts take you there... More

According to Tripadvisor this is apparently one of the best five star hotels on Rèunion island. Then the other hotels must really be horrendous as Palm Hôtel and Spa is definately not worth five stars. The hotel is expensive and cannot even get the basics right. If I stay in a five star hotel I expect basics to be executed... More

The new beach-terrasse and restaurant located up on the hill surrounding a real 180° sea view is just AMAZING... The food and services are great. Take a time to stay on the roof top terrace to drink a glass of champagne in the sunset... if you're lucky as we were you'll see whales jumping in the bay.
