In December 2011 myself and my partner ( Shaun and June ) visited southern palms from the start we were looked after with such sincerity , we were shown to our room with a quick but thorough explanation of what was what as we walked past. The first thing you notice is the cleanliness of the place and the pool...

We just returned a few days ago from our first visit to Kenya. Overall we found the Southern Palms resort a beautiful and very friendly hotel. The staff were very helpful and always smiling.

I cannot comprehend how any resort located on the beautiful Kenya coast can so consistently fail to provide guests with such basic commodities as bananas, pineapples and orange juice. These goods are in plentiful supply just outside the hotel yet on the breakfast buffet there was no sign of them for days on end. This is just one area where...

I stayed already 3 times to Southern Palms. What makes this hotel is the service you get from staff, staff is very friendly, open and welcoming. They do their best to serve you the best way possible with the few accomodation they get. They don't have enough glasses, or system for alcoholic drinks doesn't work, so they need to cross...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This dramatic hotel with its fantastic pools and beautiful beach is the perfect spot to relax after a safari… or simply visit to relax! The warm and very African feel of the hotel with comfortable rooms, well appointed bathrooms and selection of restaurants offers guests plenty of places to lounge in the sun and almost as many shady spots to enjoy a bit of a breeze and a good book. All rooms have quiet, split unit air conditioners, televisions, mini fridges and coffee and tea making facilities. There is a safe (chargeable) in each room and a business center located in the main building with internet or wifi access in public areas. The drama of the huge, traditional makuti (thatched) roof in the main restaurant offers the Chef a terrific showcase for a varied selection of local and international dishes on the buffet or you could indulge at one of the a la carte restaurants (chargeable) for a special occasion or just a quiet evening for two. ... more   less
