There needs to be at least another to buttons above excellent to really give The Palms the rating it deserves. This is without doubt the best hotel we've stayed in and we have to go back soon!! The hotel consists of only 6 villas so is very quiet and private. When we arrived there was only one other villa occupied... More

From the moment we pulled into the cocoon of The Palms, we knew we would never want to leave. The entire compound is gorgeous. We had just come from 4 days of safari, which was absolutely fabulous but we were ready to relax! The Palms was Part 2 of our honeymoon and we stayed there 10 days! The manager, Siriak,... More

If you want privacy next to the beach this is the pleace to go. The resort has only 6 villas, a little pool, it is next to the beach, and so amazing. It is perfect for couples who wanna have some privacy and not be disturbed. We just loved it!! Def. wanna go back :-)

Wow. There really is nowhere else like The Palms. We came to The Palms after a rather disappointing stay on Pemba island, but as soon as we arrived we were blown away. The cottages were simply divine, with everything that you could possibly imagine and need. The soft furnishings and design of the accommodation was fantastic and you could really... More

After waking up at the crack of dawn to go treking up mountains to see gorilla's, after being woken at 5.30 every morning to do a game drive, after being kept awake most nights by the sound of lions, hyena, buffalo and everything the Serengeti has to offer, How superb to arrive at The Palms, we (my wife and I)...

We departed Nairobi & touched down in paradise at The Palms. Every aspect of the hotel went above & beyond our expectations & even our wildest dreams! The level of service is outstanding - we can't explain how wonderful every member of the team were. Your glass is never empty & they anticipate your every need but it's done with... More

A really amazing property, perfect for those wanting to have a bit of privacy and very personal service. Great food, amazing rooms, dedicated sunbed/shade area by the beach. Perhaps better for older couples, but a nice private getaway all round
