Southern Palms Beach Resort is a beautiful 4star Hotel situated on the white beaches of Kenya's Diani, approximately 35km South of Mombasa
The main feature of Southern Palms is its two massive swimming pools. These must be the largest pools we’ve ever seen! The pools loosely twist around the Southern Palms Beach Resort's two ‘swim-up bars’ and are surrounded by rows of palms. Southern Palms Beach Resort reminded us of an oasis with its blue waters and green vegetation. One of the pools, the one closest to the entrance, is a salt water pool. The other, which is slightly larger is a freshwater pool and seems to be the favourite.
Southern Palms Beach Resort opened in 1992 and is more like a little village than a hotel, with its great restaurants, bars and 4-storey accommodation blocks. Southern Palms Beach Resort has a fun kiddie’s centre as well as babysitting facilities.
Southern Palms Beach Resort is very majestic and caters for all tastes, while still remaining quite classy. Apart from the great swimming pool there are loads of exciting activities at Southern Palms Beach Resort to take part in. The Southern Palms Beach Resort is a sports fan’s dream with a floodlit tennis court, 2 air-conditioned squash courts, pool tables, bowls, table tennis, beach volleyball as well as great live entertainment at night, including African song and dance, acrobats and local folklore.
Accomodation at the Southern Palms Beach Resort
Southern Palms Beach is a massive 4 star resort with 298 rooms and two deluxe suites, spread out over 8 accommodation blocks.
All the rooms at Southern Palms Beach Resort come equipped with air-con, combination safes in the wardrobes, direct dial telephones and a single day-bed that converts into a second bed (great for families).
Dining at the Southern Palms Beach Resort
Southern Palms Beach Resort is known for its great seafood and meat platters and offers four restaurants to choose from, all serving good, tasty meals.
The resort’s main restaurant seats 450 guests and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner - buffet style. They serve good crab, prawns and steaks, and their Spiny Langouste (clawless lobster) is simply delicious.
The second dining option at Southern Palms Beach Resort, the Manyatta ‘Nyama Choma’ (African barbeque) Restaurant is next to the pool and serves grilled meat, game and fish. They use special spices on their dishes that give a great twist to a traditional barbeque.
The Boriti Snack Restaurant offers snacks and light lunches during the day while the Beachcomber Stir-fry chefs dish up great “mix” a la minute nibbles right on the beachfront.
Another dinner option, the La via Romana Italian Restaurant, offers great a la carte Italian food. This restaurant is next to the ocean and makes for a really pretty setting.
There are also 5 bars spread out over the property, including 2 ‘swim up bars’ by the poolside. All of them stay open ‘till 11pm except for the main bar which operates 24/7.

We stayed at this hotel .The staff are very helpful ,they will look after you! There is a wide choice of food available and if you still require anything not on the menu the food manager and the chefs will endeavour to meet your requirements. There was 5 of us including 3 children and we all never got bored of the food. This just added the icing on the cake !.The hotel has a fabulous swimming pool ,which leads directly to the lovely beach. All the facilities are kept very clean and the whole holiday was a fabulous experience and we would go back.
Wonderful and friendly

Me and my daughter stayed nearly two weeks at this marvelous hotel. We had a half board package and breakfast/dinner. You can choose between four amazing restaurants for the dinner.
