Great place to shake off the dust of safari and relax with a view of the Indian Ocean and walkable reef at low tide. A true delight that exceeded all expectations! The villa was the size of a comfortable home, with multiple options for lounging indoors and out. Food was amazing, with a chef's demonstration for lunch one day, and... More

This was our second visit to the palms and it won't be our last. On entering the bungalow it still had the wow factor. We don't really have words to describe how superb the place is, only heaven we cannot imagine heaven being any better. Clearly this hotel must be an excellent work place, because the staff had not changed... More

On arriving at The Palms, after a lovely few days Safari for our honeymoon, we were gleefully surprised at just how impressive our bungalow was.

This place owes a lot to its manager, Siriak, and the attentive service that he and his staff provide. The rooms are huge, the food amazing, and you can't beat the view from your private banda. We particularly enjoyed the lunch on the beach, which they timed beautifully to end as the incoming tide lapped at our toes. If you... More
