Our group(8pax) had a wonderful stay at Southern Palms now in Nov.Excellent food,especially the "nan" bread every evening. Delicious.Nice beach,nice and warm swimmingpool,and very service-minded staff. Clean and tidy and peaceful place. We have repeatedly visited this hotel over many years with family and friends and have never been disappointed.Magni and Bjarne Taranger

I come from Mombasa and felt that I just wanted to unwind. I searched for a hotel in the south coast of Kenya and just bumped into SPBR, Diani. I am proud to have made Southern Palms Beach Resort my weekend getaway choice. It"s a small heaven on earth. Everything is just excellent. I swear I have never met such... More

This was our first visit to Mombasa for leisure. We were lucky to choose southern palms as our resort. Excellent location and great service. I however have a suggestion that the night entertainment time should be extended and the Internet access altos be present in rooms. Also the food menu should have more variety. An appraisal for miss.defence samba...Thankyou!

Just spend 3 nights and days at the resort. It was my first time there and I absolutely loved it all round. Staff are very friendly and are always eager to assist. Clean environment with great night time entertainment. Great for either team building, a family vacation or a couple's retreat. Food was delicious. visit there for a wonderful experience.

Despite the fact that there are very few guests, whether they are English, German or other nationialities, the hotel have not skimped on the variety of food or the amount available. I travelled independently instead of using a travel company (as most are not yet going to Kenya) and had the most fAbulous time. The staff, although reduced in numbers... More

During the summer vacation this year, we went back to Southern Palms for a family reunion. Last year we had stayed at the same hotel along with many of my cousins and their families. We had such a good time that we wanted to repeat the same experience. And wow...it was even better than last year. Southern Palms is a... More

I have visited Southern Palms twice this year, first with family and then with my hubby. The service is excellent, very friendly staff, and their all-inclusive package is incomparable to that of other hotels in the Kenyan Coast. The beach and pools are clean and there's always an activity you can get involved in, in between basking and swimming. I... More

Had a stop here for the night before onward travel to Wasini and the pristine white sandy beach was awesome. Front desk staff very friendly and entertaining and the fact that they had guests even in such a low season when everyone else is closing shop for renovation speaks volumes.

We stayed there for 4 nights with my hubby and it was great. What i liked best was the great service and since we were the only local tourists in the hotel..we felt well treated. We didn't feel discriminated like most hotels do. We felt special and well treated. That was a major boost to the low domestic tourism in... More
