Beautiful hotel, extremely friendly and respectful staff and amazing snack bar. The all inclusive package is unmatched in terms of value. Unlimited drinks and food! Would recommend the hotel to anyone going to Diani especially for relaxation purposes.

Amazing! There was such an ease of communication between the management and our organising committee. They were flexible, hospitable, prepared and dependable. The all inclusive provision is such a cost-effective option and the beach was breathtaking. Can't wait to go back with my family!

This place never disappoints. From the ever smiling team at the Reception to the Master Chef whose gang delivers tantalizing gourmet meals. From the notorious carnivals to strict vegans, Southern Palms have the best for everyone. Not forgetting the Boritti Restaurant that makes Pizza on demand. The mixologists are unrivalled. Delivering a mix of Gin Fizz, Pinacoladas, Screwdrivers and Hotlips... More

This is not Africa. However, the start of my safari holiday through the bumby African roads started at this very beautiful place. I had a room with a beautiful view to the Indian ocean, just next to the beach. The hotel has three restaurants you can choose for dinner, and my favorite was the African grill. The Italian one was... More

This was a reunion trip, with friends and family during the low tourism season. The all inclusive rates for our stay were spectacularly low, so I wasn't expecting much in terms of amenities or service. I was wrong. Service was impeccable and no ask was too much. Food was always freshly prepared and the attention to detail was spot on.... More
