About Medina Palms
Medina Palms is an inspired destination created to redefine your ultimate holiday experience. This exclusive destination enjoys a beachfront setting on the powder white sands and crystal clear waters of one of the world’s top 10 beaches on the Indian Ocean. Designed to redefine your holiday experience, Medina Palms is an all-suite hospitality destination inspired by the architecture of the ancient seafarers who visited this coastline in the 12th century. We call this contemporary Swahili design, since the elegant interiors include all the essentials for modern living. Our stunning accommodation sets a new benchmark for luxury, providing more space to breathe than conventional hotels or resorts.
We feature elegant Medina suites with views over tropical gardens, tree top-level penthouses with inner courtyards, magnificent beach villas with superb spaces. Towards the beach we have oceanfront villas with panoramic sea views and stylish plunge pools on every roof terrace. These all combine to create a unique Medina lifestyle unparalleled on this Indian Ocean coast.
All accommodation is provided with an en-suite bathroom, separate kitchen, private lounge, veranda, Wi-Fi and international TV channels. Our eco credentials feature the best of green technology. High quality fixtures and fittings and distinctive Moorish features are tastefully coupled with the best of European chic.
Set within tropical gardens with mature indigenous trees, Medina Palms has four swimming pools with interconnecting water channels, cascades and waterfalls.
Start your day with a delicious breakfast from our Amandina restaurant or take pleasure in coffee and pastries available on our shaded garden terrace. Refreshments are served throughout the day. Lunchtime aperitifs, mocktails and health drinks can be enjoyed with a variety of light bites and tapas. Afternoon tea and cakes are also available to help replenish your energy levels. In the late afternoon, the Amandina Long Bar is a great place to meet the big game fishermen and hear tales of the monster fish that got away. Why not mingle with sophisticated city dwellers or adventure seeking safari travellers. Delight in alfresco evenings on the terrace, try shisha in our star lounge or enjoy creative cocktails under the equatorial sky. We also provide private dining for those times when you want the privacy of dining on your own, call for our home dining menu or book the services of one of our private chefs. Poolside Picnics are also available for sun lovers. We have poolside picnics designed for easy eating, a great way for you to snack and relax.
