The Palms

Located on what is recognised as one of the best beaches in the world, Bwejuu, this resort on the south-east coast of the island is a true Robinson Crusoe experience.

White sand, deep blue sea, constant sunshine, tropical gardens, private thatched bandas on the beach and just six luxury villas, each with their own large verandah, butler and private plunge pool – this is what makes The Palms so special. It’s a hedonistic haven for those wishing to relax and recharge after the exertions of a safari.

Our Thoughts

A very private collection of just six villas, each with its own plunge pool and butler. The room rate includes all meals, drinks and daily afternoon tea, and because it is extremely popular with honeymooners, booking early to stay here is the best advice. Guests can use the facilities of the next-door Breezes Beach Club and Baraza if they wish.
