Insider's View

It is wonderful to relax in your sala and watch all the locals come past in the shallows of the reef, collecting all the small fish and crustaceans, which have got trapped.

Description

The Palms is a beautiful beach retreat set in tropical gardens overlooking the award winning beach (chosen by Conde Nast Traveler magazine as one of the top 30 beaches in the world). The six private thatched “bandas” shelter day beds and loungers to provide intimate beachfront privacy.

The hotel offers the luxuries and comforts of a high quality resort in a relaxed and intimate setting.

Each of the six palm-thatched villas exudes an atmosphere of understated elegance and is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, day beds and private outdoor jacuzzi. There is a driftwood bar and a beautiful mosaic pool, and guests looking for total relaxation of the mind and body can enjoy the Sanctuary Spa next door at Breezes Beach Club, which provides a blissful and tranquil setting as well as a wide range of treatments. Facilities at Breezes (which can be used by residents of The Palms) also include a gym, floodlit tennis court, windsurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving.

At low tide, guests are able to go for a reef safari where you take a walk out to the coral reef and see the spectacular marine life. Guests will be accompanied by a member of staff out on the coral shelf in front of the hotel and will point out many of the juvenile fish that seek refuge in the shallow waters at low tide. The guests can learn how the coral itself is vital to the island and its inhabitants as well as information about the sea life they encounter.

Accommodation

The Palms has six very spacious villas. Each villa has a bedroom, living room, full en-suite bathroom, dressing room, extra room with its own en-suite bathroom and a large furnished terrace with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean. The rooms are well-appointed and very comfortable to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The Palms Villa

The Palms Villas all have a large bedroom with a king size bed, a living area and a private terrace. There is also an additional bedroom with its own en suite bathroom.
