Medina Palms is an exclusive resort set on the Kenyan coast just south of Malindi. With a contemporary Swahili design and Moroccan inspired interiors, it is a tranquil hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Watamu. There is also a world class water-sports facility which has East Africa’s only British Kitesurfing Association approved school.

Following our really successful Exclusive African Evening back in October with Patrick Mavros; the world–renowned jeweller and silversmith, we were really excited that Medina Palms has launched an exclusive collection of Patrick’s pieces at their recently opened on-site designer boutique, Passion. The magnificent collection features unique cufflinks, earrings, bangles, necklaces and rings.

Patrick Mavros is known for his unique and original vision, drawing inspiration from the landscapes, flora and fauna of his native Zimbabwe. He founded his business in 1979, after making a pair of earrings for his wife that were admired by her friends. Since then, Mavros has established his name worldwide creating numerous signature pieces, among them his crocodile belt buckles, elephant hair bangles and his elephant and tortoise cigar ashtrays, all in sterling silver.
Medina Palms carries both the Mauritius Collection and the ZoZo Collection among other ethereal sterling silver pieces designed by Patrick Mavros. The Mauritius Collection features jewelry pieces designed as a tribute to the incredible marine diversity and beauty of the Indian Ocean. This embodies Medina’s spirit for their love of all things aquatic, especially as they are located along Kenya’s most beautiful coastline. Passion, Medina Palms’ boutique is proudly the first East African destination to carry his collection outside the Patrick Mavros Exclusive Boutiques.
