This is now becoming one of my favourite places in the world ! A wonderful place to relax, eat William's glorious food, matched with good wines and indulge yourself. The staff will all spoil you. They are amazing at recognizing very quickly your favourites, what you do or do not like, and adapting to this.

Rooms are very large, beach is great, you can enjoy all three "Breezes" properties - but the food was by far the most amazing aspect of our 7 days at the Palms! Every meal was prepared on the spot with fresh caught lobster, Swahili local dishes, and delicious Indian.....

After being booked at their sister resort next door, Breezes, and being incredible disappointed, we paid for the upgraded and moved over to the Palms, where we immediately felt like we had entered through the gates of heaven.
