5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

This place is absolutely out of this world, we've never stayed somewhere with such an incredible level of attention and service. There are only 6 villas total so only 12 people staying here at a time, which leads to the most personalized experience you could ask for. Anything you want, Siriak can make happen, sometimes without you even asking. His... More

Siriak is the perfect host; any problems, requests or even just fancy a game of bao this man is on the job - I cannot praise him enough for his exceptional service. Some of this has clearly also been passed onto the... More

It starts with Siriak, the manager, more like a host, always there to make sure everything is perfect. It continues with the entire staff always smiling and making sure everything is perfect... and it was perfect!

My review will be quite biased since this is our third visit to the Palms and quite frankly the more times you go, the better it gets. This is largely due to the fact that there is a very low turnover of staff, which meant that it was almost like returning to family, even to the fact that our favourite... More

This is now becoming one of my favourite places in the world ! A wonderful place to relax, eat William's glorious food, matched with good wines and indulge yourself. The staff will all spoil you. They are amazing at recognizing very quickly your favourites, what you do or do not like, and adapting to this.

Rooms are very large, beach is great, you can enjoy all three "Breezes" properties - but the food was by far the most amazing aspect of our 7 days at the Palms! Every meal was prepared on the spot with fresh caught lobster, Swahili local dishes, and delicious Indian.....
