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

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit to The Palms. Set on one of the world's most beautiful unspoilt beaches, this hotel with just six villas, superb management and staff, is a sophisticated oasis of tranquility for anyone wishing to 'escape' and relax in style. The large comfortable villas combine every modern European convenience with a... More

After 7 days in a tent climbing Kilimanjaro, we were really looking forward to some relaxed luxury and The Palms was perfect. The villas are spacious, well equipped, and very comfortable. Each villa also has it own good sized beach cabana with sun loungers which we used extensively. The service was just right - attentive and friendly without being too... More

After 7 nights on safari, The Palms was a welcomed beach escape for my family for 4 nights. It's is a very private and luxurious resort with just 6 beautiful cottages. It is quiet but it's beside The Breezes hotel which we had full access. Siriak was the manager that looked after us and he was a great host. All... More

This hotel is fantastic and the quality of the chalets and staff are exceptional. If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would. From day one, we were made to feel special, especially by the assistant manager Siriak Euarist. He could not of gone out of his way more to make us feel comfortable and happy. The food... More

This hotel is a treasure. It is beautifully presented with every need catered for, from the villa, the service, food and drinks, the gardens - it's all perfect! We loved the Plantation House with its colonial style and large verandah for sundowner cocktails. The staff are superb, polite and friendly and beautifully trained. Presentation of tables delightful with flowers from... More

Following 9 days of safari at 3 different camps, we arrived at "The Palms" for 10 days of rest and relaxation before returning to the Canadian winter. Our stay turned out to be the crowing glory of our holiday and was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Siriak, the manager was very professional, friendly and responsive... More

This is a amazing place. Our only complaint would be that we never seemed to stop eating! The food and drinks provided at all times were top class. The service was attentive but sometimes a little slow for small items like hot milk but always cheerfully presented. The manager, Siriak, was a gem and his chalk and efficiency shone through...

From the moment we arrived to be greeted with a cool drink and an ice-cold scented towel, it was evident that this was indeed a very special place. The most personable manager, Siriak, took us on a short tour to familiarise us with the dining room (and its outside terrace), as well as the pool bar where lunch was served.... More
